You can ignore the vast majority of that.

I'm not sure of DriverAgent's heuristics, but it simply looks like it's pointing out some components that it has links to. Your drivers may, or may not actually be out of date.

Every single one of those components can be updated yourself. Zero need to pay for this 'service'.

Do you have an Asus Azurewave? That's probably your unknown device. The rest? Pfft. Not critical.

Thank you for your response Sir !
as for Driver Agent..i have account with them for the past 2 years the app works well
to some degree ,i run DA before SP1 install and only had 2 bad drivers ..after SP1 26 !
.."Do you have an Asus Azurewave? That's probably your unknown device."..i think this is Bluetooth (opted not to install -don't need it ) driver if i'm correct ..no i don't
last night i came across this thread ;

Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

Windows 7 sp1 update bug fix. Mandaglio | Edit | Show History
I believe that Windows 7 SP1 update holds the drivers in a temp folder. There is a bug in it that can not release the Drivers.

I went to Your CD or DVD drive can't read or write media

and click on the Microsoft Fix it. Found the driver for the CD/DVD/DVD +-RW for my laptop.

Just use the Internet explorer and not Google Chrome or another browser. Place icon on desktop to do it every time you need an update.
Note: Will ask to place icon on desktop, please say yes."

any thoughts on this ?
