    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.
    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

    Sorry I didn't mean to confuse you.

    Actually, it is an all-in-one desktop but from seeing a dell repair person open it up, it works more like a laptop but that just my opinion. From what what I saw, the dvd/cd drive for example would also work in a laptop. I think the all-in-one uses laptop parts.

    You can do what Callender said or do what I said. Whichever method works better for you. I was just giving you another option as what to do. I read some people do better with never install driver software from windows update and using the manufactures driver update program. I even used that option myself but I came across another problem but that might confuse you more.

    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 !
    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:

    Just watch out for the occasional wild hare. WU keeps offering me an "update" that is years older than what the vendor installs. I installed/tested the MS offer and it causes the CPU to max out when the laptop is undocked.

    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 ........
    It seems that everyone has their own take on the subject. What I personally do is:

    After a clean install of windows download available drivers from the computer manufacturer's website and install them. For anything else I don't worry too much about updating drivers unless there's a performance issue or I see problems indicated by "Device Manager"

    I do run driver update check software from time to time but if updates are available I note them down and search for them manually.

    Generally Windows Update will provide you with a working driver but if you have a driver that works okay maybe you don't need to update it unless it offers new features that you actually need.

    Re: Realtek drivers. I just stick with the driver that's available for download on the ASUS (for my machine) website.

    It's really very easy to review updates before they download and install :/
    No need to turn off the update system. This separates updates nicely :)

    I guess you have not had my experience. I've tried many "solutions" even the one from Microsoft's own forum. I removed the recommended GWX keys (and a few others on my own) from the Registry using regedit. After 2 reboots, I no longer had a Win10 icon, but first thing I get after selecting some security updates is Win10 downloading - yet again!

    I finally followed another forum's advise to block Updates completely but now my system is not getting any security updates. Plan B is the pain of reverting to an old system image - if I could only remember the date I agreed to the update!

    The only part of this pushing it out to every computer is why, I've never felt a spam feeling from Windows and this just feels odd.

    If you put your settings on " never check " but once in a fortnight change to " check but let me choose", you could quickly download the security updates and then turn back to never check settings.
