Driver update problem

please help guys... I tried updating several drivers in my computer through device manager but It says that my existing drivers are current, but when I tried this program SLIMDRIVER to scan for driver updates It shows a lot of updates for various drivers in my system. I have not tried downloading these updates through SLIMDRIVERS though. Is this program okay to be used to update my drivers?

Stick to drivers you get via the manufacturers' support page or via windows updates. Apps like Slimdriver often show erroneous/obsolete/current drivers as updates.

Such as nvidia's website for video drivers, realtec's site for audio drivers. Also, go to the samsung support page for your model and checkout the drivers there. For unknown devices (entries with yellow exclamation marks in the device manager), there is a way to identify the device vendor.
