Windows 7: Updating Windows 7 USB Host Controllers + Others

Updating Windows 7 USB Host Controllers + Others

First some info: Windows 7 Professional x64, Intel x58 Chipset

So, looking in my device manager I've noticed that a lot of the stuff are not updated.

The date is still June 2006

According to DriverEasy they need to be updated:

Other devices include the devices like these:

First I tried to do the automatic update through device manager, but Windows insists that these are up to date.

So then I went here: Intel® Driver Update Utility
Ran the auto detection and installed everything it says I needed. These are still not updated.

Then I grabbed the download via DriverEasy, and placed the Win7 version of these in a folder, then pointed to them. Update still say the current drivers are up to date.

I am wondering how I should go about updating them?

I don't recommend using any other software other than the Intel Driver Update Utility (or AMD) and the Device Manager itself. BTW, if everything is working fine, just leave it how it is. There is no need to keep your computer WAY too up-to-date. If it works, leave it. If it stops working, then is the time I would care about updating USB drivers.

No, the problem is that if I install the G19 driver it'll cause problems with the computer. One of the possible solutions is to update the USB drivers.
