They are from the manufacturer. But it is strongly advised to never use them from Microsoft anyhow. Always visit the manufacturers' websites for drivers.

So they are from manufacturers......but looking the dates it seems like they are newer than the one on manufacturers web pages.......so what do they have Microsoft final touch or what............

So you wouldnt use them.....no mater they look newer......?

Right. Don't worry about dates. The manufacturer's website always has the latest before Microsoft and the correct version you should be using.

Using drivers supplied by Microsoft is only looking for problems.
