Windows 7: Does a scanner exist to tell me if I need driver updates?

Does a scanner exist to tell me if I need driver updates?

The other day a friend reminded me to check my video card for driver updates. As it turned out Nvidia did have a driver update and it solved a major issues I was having

Now I'm thinking I might as well see if any other drivers need updating. I don't really want to have to look up every bit of hardware I have and then search for drivers, unless I have to

does software exist that can scan my computer and possibly cut some of the work out for me?

Thanks for your help!

Yes but not recommended. here are driver detective type apps but they dont always have the must up to date driver database. Just google it

Driver Scanner?
I've just upgraded from 32 bit to 64 bit. Driver Scanner came along with either ImgBurn or Magic Partition. I ran the scan and ~20 drivers (a lot of which were Intel) showed old to very old. Is this an instance to leave well enough alone or is it a good idea to update the old drivers--even if...
