Windows 7: Driver Updates

Windows 7 64 Bit
Driver Updates

This is my motherboard :
ASRock Z77 Extreme4

I have the Intel Drive Support and Assistant installed but some of my drivers listed under the Scan by INtel Driver Support and Assistant have Driver dates of 2012 and 2014. DO i have to manually update some of these drivers.. or does Windows automatically let me know when to update them. There's no yellow flash marks in the device manager.

There is nothing wrong with a driver from 2012 - 2014 considering the year of release of this motherboard. Also a newer version doesn't necessary mean a better experience. This is especially true with the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver. Test your drivers for stability and performance. Do not let Windows install any drivers via Windows Update.

But, I keep getting this error "encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device" It also said that "The system cannot find the file specified". Does this mean that I won't be...
BUY? Driver Updates or Scanner Updates
I have a DELL (one year) w/ Windows 7 and I’ve downloaded Driver Updates and Scanner Update software, and I see that I have several “Drivers” that came up out-dated. Is this even true? If so, why doesn’t DELL send me emails or update automatically? I won’t mind buying a software, but which...
