    what is the best driver update software out there?

    i've used driverbooster from iobit and it has worked fine, what do others use?

    Driver Genius is my favourite, but it's paid

    If the system is working well, I think it is best to leave the drivers alone, updating to the latest often breaks them !

    Updating to the latest drivers 'Rarely' breaks things, it happens, but only usually if you let something dumb like WU install them

    If you choose the correct drivers, and know what you're doing, you won't generally break anything

    I have Driver Easy from a sid_16 giveaway. Not the highest rated, but seems to work okay. As already noted, keep backups, use with care, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    BTW - I've had more damage from "Speed Booster" programs than "diver updaters".
