How to schedule all driver updates?

Is there a program to consolidate the process of updating drivers, and then auto-update on schedule? Thanks.

A lot of programs that do this are a con so take care drivers sent updated very often and as it's the end for 7 no one will want to update their drivers as they have to pay to get them signed

Drivers can go wrong,

However, it is normal best policy to only update drivers if and when you have a problem

There is a huge number of PCs and Laptops and the majority of these are different in some way, Software loaded, or hardware installed, from every other device.

If you install every driver issued that matches your hardware you run the risk of "breaking" something else. If your system is running well, leave it running as it is.

If you have a specific error with hardware best source for help is either here or the manufacturer, most will have a help service of some type and they will supply fully complaint drivers for their hardware,

Microsoft does not write windows drivers, (aside from those for their Hardware), the drivers are written by the manufacturers of the hardware and often the ones written for Microsoft to include with windows and it's updates are either generic, or basic builds to just get the system to work

Hi

As you have an HP OEM branded comp, part of the bloatware is a system updater.

Believe it runs daily, unless you've changed the settings
