Windows 7: BUY? Driver Updates or Scanner Updates

BUY? Driver Updates or Scanner Updates

I have a DELL (one year) w/ Windows 7 and I’ve downloaded Driver Updates and Scanner Update software, and I see that I have several “Drivers” that came up out-dated. Is this even true?

If so, why doesn’t DELL send me emails or update automatically?

I won’t mind buying a software, but which one?

Sorry, so many questions. Thanks in advance.

Forget the driver update software, unless you are having issues you don't need to update any drivers and if you do you should get then directly from the manufacturers website and not via a 3rd party product.

Also please do not repost the same question in multiple sections of the site as that is against forum rules.

All Dell driver updates are free from the Dell website.
