You can get your Microsoft Office updates automatically via the Windows Update service, and other major applications offer similar auto-update functions.
Despite the off-putting complexity its name implies, most driver update software is not difficult to use.
All of the software in our review can be simply downloaded and set up in a matter of minutes.
For the last couple of months, I have been trying to find the source of an intermittent glitch with my notebook PC's wireless connection.
I would often lose Internet access when waking the system from sleep mode: the network icon in the system tray indicated "Local only." Restarting the machine restored the wireless link, but then why use sleep mode at all?
Pretty much every piece of your computer hardware has accompanying drivers that lets it work on your computer.
Most people don’t know what drivers are, let alone how critical most of them are to their computers’ overall health and why it’s a must to keep them up to date.Do not rely on Windows' Roll Back Driver function under the Driver tab in the Device Manager Properties dialog box.Likewise, run the update's own installer rather than using Properties' Update Driver button.Without those updates, you risk suffering slowdowns, crashes and boot problems that can potentially keep you from turning your PC on.There are a few drivers that come built in on your Windows computer, but many can only be accessed or updated directly from a hardware manufacturer’s site.That driver update turned out so well I decided to check the other refreshes available for my notebook.
