You should check your manufacturer's website to see if they have other drivers available for the graphics card - they may be more recent than the ones on Windows Update.

I tend to agree with Oscer.

I was offered that very same Intel update and turned it down.

I don't like to mess with something that is working well, particularly something as critical as the graphics built into my Intel CPU. Are you having any issues even vaguely related to graphics performance?

Several years back, I accepted such a graphics update and regretted it, although I can't recall the specific details.

If it were a security-related update, I'd likely accept it.

My problem was my system would freeze up after a graphics update so since then I never updated the graphics had no problem since.
