Windows 7: Downloading Standalone Win Updates - Prob?

10 Jun 2011   #11

Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1

Meh, my net's fast enough. I just don't like all the restarting at the beginning of a clean install to get it updated. I'd rather just make future processes simpler. =) Just like to tinker, too. ^^"

Be careful with Drivers and Driver Updates that come from MS or Windows Updates.
It is still best to get them from the manufacturer directly.
Driver Updates from MS do not always go well and break whatever hardware they are for, till you uninstall the driver and reinstall from the manufacturer. Notorious ones are Realtek and other Audio Drivers and Any Video Drivers.
On occasion, other hardware, so I make it a general rule not to get my drivers from MS or MS Updates.

If you have a problem in the future with some hardware after doing an install like you are doing, more then likely it's the driver from MS.

A lot of people say they are the exact same drivers (MS and Manufacturer), but that is not entirely true.

It is really good! I use it on each and every one of my computers, and I only have compliments and recommendations. Give it a try, and it is probably safer and less error prone than trying to integrate updates onto the disk. It is a truly excellent tool!
