    Driver Updates


    Using Windows Update, not MS Update, I had never seen driver updates appear under Optional Upgrades other than the WDM VAG driver on my lappie. However wife's machine last night popped up a driver for "Other Hardware - Microsoft Wieless Router Module" .... huh ?

    What's this for ? To capture wireless router traffic ? :)

    MS .... stay away from my Hardware Drivers !

    It might also be worth trying to disable windows update drivers search.

    Start> Right click Computer

    Choose "Properties"

    On the left side choose "Advanced System Settings"

    On the Hardware tab choose "Device Installation Settings"

    Set it like this:

    He Challender :)

    That is very interesting, considering my audio drivers problem. So, if I would change the settings as you show above and I would uninstall drivers in the device manager, windows will not be able to re-install as always the same Bl""dy old drivers but look elsewhere or what? Or not at all and let me do the searching?

    You see, I am afraid of that, know nothing about drivers and the like

    Let me choose? From Dell, Realtek, what ever?
    How would I know what to choose ........

    thelma,

    For me I selected, Yes, do this automatically. However, I would remove any programs that downloads updates directly from dell. Before, I did a clean install I notice dell driver program conflicted with windows update driver. Ironically, the windows update drivers are provide to Microsoft by dell.

    Sticky Thread and/or Tutorial


    Perhaps we need a sticky thread/tutorial listing the known "Get W10" updates that have been delivered to W7.
    Obviously it would need to be updated every month.

    A single location would make it easier to find the information, as opposed to searching a 700+ post thread.

    I'll suggest it to Brink, so the that all the necessary people can discuss the idea and take any action they think is appropriate. :)

    Ok Groze :), sorry I come back to what you posted earlier on.

    I see in your sys specs that you have a Dell desktop,( I thought for some reason they only made laptops ) ,never mind, so you think I should not try to install drivers proposed by Dell system detect

    Or do I get really mixed up here

    That's the stupidest thing I've read here in a while.

    Windows 7 has always delivered occasional hardware driver updates to a range of hardware, more commonly the video drivers, but not exclusively so. Its a well-known and proven fact that drivers issued & certified by Microsoft are far less likely to clash with the operating system and cause BSOD's. That's why they do it : to keep your system stable.

    Some examples from my system:

    Found in the tutorials " Nir Soft Driver View" designed by Arc.

    Gonna use that I think, looks good and safe to use for a beginner like me:)

    That is a great idea. == It is a shame that people who have paid money to Microsoft have to do this stuff to keep using something that was paid for.
