The best way to update is to go to each website and install the most current manually. Yes, more time consuming, but the easiest way is not the best.
In addition, if you are not having problems there is no reason to update. If not broken do not fix it.

I personally would not use any of those driver update programs.

Like richc46 said. If it's not broke don't fix it.
