Then for days after I would find a little here and their and would remove them.
It's not worth the head ache to me to use Slim Drive again.
SlimDrivers was just used as an example to help the OP understand how to obtain a download link.

Thanks for pointing out that there can be problems when using a driver update utility. For example SlimDrivers will install Catalyst Control Centre when updating Radeon drivers! Personally I wouldn't use Slim Drivers for such driver updates although it's okay for some driver updates.

I wouldn't recommend SlimDrivers to inexperienced users!

Link to download the portable version is near the top left of the page.

Run it and then allow your driver to download. You'll see the download URL displayed.

Screenshots when running a driver update utility on my machine:
