Always use the OEM manufacturer's website for driver updates. Not the Windows updateer as it loves to misled.

Check for updated Drivers on the ACER website.

+1 for the above. You should periodically check the OEM's website for updated drivers and do the updates. Same in the case of all software you installed. This should be a routine exercise.

+ 2 for the above - check the OEM website for updated drivers.

Just one little thing though theog - why have you directed the OP to
download drivers from the Acer website when there is no mention
of an Acer machine anywhere - what if the OP has,
lets say, a Toshiba for example?

Anyways -

Maybe you received a PM?

Not to mention that I was helping him in another thread and he mentioned that it was an Acer laptop.

No, I meant that I was privy to some information that others might not have seen due to being involved in the other thread. My conscience kept me from acting like a know-it-all.
