Windows 7: Any worthwhile driver installer applications? Recommendations?

Win 7 64 Home Premium


Thanks again for the continuing enlightenment. My connection is fairly quick, so I'll check that out for sure. As for the "bloatware" that comes with Win 7 Home Premium, I, too, would like to get rid of it (as I always have with Windows). But since it can be difficult to define exactly what was installed and where (Windows doesn't exactly broadcast everything that it installs), I never feel confident I've purged it. The best I've managed is to turn off anything unneeded that boots at start-up (and I try to identify unnecessary services as well, though I'm always reluctant to disable them).
