Ok Groze , sorry I come back to what you posted earlier on.

I see in your sys specs that you have a Dell desktop,( I thought for some reason they only made laptops ) ,never mind, so you think I should not try to install drivers proposed by Dell system detect

Or do I get really mixed up here

Sorry I didn't mean to confuse you.

Actually, it is an all-in-one desktop but from seeing a dell repair person open it up, it works more like a laptop but that just my opinion. From what what I saw, the dvd/cd drive for example would also work in a laptop. I think the all-in-one uses laptop parts.

You can do what Callender said or do what I said. Whichever method works better for you. I was just giving you another option as what to do. I read some people do better with never install driver software from windows update and using the manufactures driver update program. I even used that option myself but I came across another problem but that might confuse you more.

What's this for ? To capture wireless router traffic ?

MS .... stay away from my Hardware Drivers !
That's the stupidest thing I've read here in a while.

Windows 7 has always delivered occasional hardware driver updates to a range of hardware, more commonly the video drivers, but not exclusively so. Its a well-known and proven fact that drivers issued & certified by Microsoft are far less likely to clash with the operating system and cause BSOD's. That's why they do it : to keep your system stable.

Some examples from my system:

Attachment 378374
Just watch out for the occasional wild hare. WU keeps offering me an "update" that is years older than what the vendor installs. I installed/tested the MS offer and it causes the CPU to max out when the laptop is undocked.

Or not at all and let me do the searching?

You see, I am afraid of that, know nothing about drivers and the like

Let me choose? From Dell, Realtek, what ever?
How would I know what to choose ........
It seems that everyone has their own take on the subject. What I personally do is:

After a clean install of windows download available drivers from the computer manufacturer's website and install them. For anything else I don't worry too much about updating drivers unless there's a performance issue or I see problems indicated by "Device Manager"

I do run driver update check software from time to time but if updates are available I note them down and search for them manually.

Generally Windows Update will provide you with a working driver but if you have a driver that works okay maybe you don't need to update it unless it offers new features that you actually need.

Re: Realtek drivers. I just stick with the driver that's available for download on the ASUS (for my machine) website.

I guess you have not had my experience. I've tried many "solutions" even the one from Microsoft's own forum. I removed the recommended GWX keys (and a few others on my own) from the Registry using regedit. After 2 reboots, I no longer had a Win10 icon, but first thing I get after selecting some security updates is Win10 downloading - yet again!

I finally followed another forum's advise to block Updates completely but now my system is not getting any security updates. Plan B is the pain of reverting to an old system image - if I could only remember the date I agreed to the update!

The only part of this pushing it out to every computer is why, I've never felt a spam feeling from Windows and this just feels odd.

If you put your settings on " never check " but once in a fortnight change to " check but let me choose", you could quickly download the security updates and then turn back to never check settings.
