    I do however have another issue where my PC would randomly freeze for a second or two. But that might be driver related. Is there any driver updater software that you recommend?

    The network drivers can cause freezes because of the overhead they can generate for the processor. I would suggest you to monitor the system and see if it still freezes or not.

    Furthermore, I don't recommend any Driver Updater Software and I am against using them because of the fact that you don't know from where the drivers are coming from. Plus, you cannot trust the software to install the correct drivers since there are millions of configurations available on the planet. Use of such software is risky, so I would avoid using them ^_^

    Unfortunately, I am not well versed with the freezing issues

    Kindly open a thread in the General Support section of the forums so that the people who are expert in that field could help you out ^_^
