    When you say "update driver" would that be from Microsoft or the manufacturer's website ?

    I quit using Microsoft drivers a long time ago...

    edit--- I use the paid version of DriverMax

    It works good.
    The free version is limited to 2 driver downloads/day.

    Never trusted this kind of software, how is it, i tried one time Reviversoft driver reviver.? I know they make backups of your drivers first. Just a bit leery of these programs. Rather check my manufacturer's site.
    It gives you the option to choose which driver to download.

    Well one you listed is easy to get from AMD, especially a video card driver. I would figure needing to use these programs might be for more harder to find drivers that concern you for updating. Again most never give good reviews for most of these driver update programs. Sure you know what your doing, be more for ones who are not too familiar.

    As you must know, make a restore point or system image backup before doing anything.
