Hello Soulfood,

Personally, I wouldn't let any 3rd party program update my system. There's really no need to when you could do so through Windows Update, and/or just download the latest drivers from the device manufacturer's website.

Hello soulfood

Another option would be - Update Checker - .You can set it to check for updates on boot but it will only advise you of updates available, that way you can manually download them when ready.
