1 Realtek Hi Def,
4 nvidia drivers what is the easiest way to do it and should I just wait till the Windows 7 comes out in a couple days?
Depends on the Nvidia drivers in question ...
I let WU do that back in Vista, and one of the drivers was for my SATA controller on my motherboard -- and that totally trashed my drive!
Turns out the versioning was in error on the driver
and what WU thought was a NEWER driver was, in fact, a much OLDER driver -- different enough that booting using the replaced driver caused filesystem corruption.
So now, while I let WU update stuff like networking drivers, I do NOT let it update SATA or IDE controller drivers until I do an image backup first.
The advice to get updates from the manufacturer's site is the best one.
