Windows 7: Driver Updates

Driver Updates

Generally speaking, if my Win7 does its daily system updates and my OS is working along without noticeable problems, should I be checking to see if my various drivers are up to date?

Thanks, all.

hey prowler, i was told by a tech here locally, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Not sure if that's a consensus in here, but I guess we'll see after this post!

I agree, leave it alone. The only driver I would be concerned about is your graphics driver, nvidia usualy auto checks and will let you know if there is an update. As long as you run windows update once a day, you`re good.
