    Windows Update Driver Updates

    I have disable the in the settings for hardware installations for driver installations as i like to update driver myself such as sound drivers,network and video drivers. Those are basically the 3 drivers that i update including security updates. By using wushowhide, i can see the drivers updates that have been block such as intel pci serial port root, watchtimer and lpc controller and etc. Does it improve performance or should i leave it alone? What does updating those driver do?

    I can only speak for myself, others may have different views. I recently had a number of problems related to Windows 10 Updates [including drivers].

    For the present my policy is to go directly to the relevant manufacturer for driver updates. A review over a number of forums, Intel in particular reveals Intel and Microsoft apparently unable to resolve problems caused by updates. I'll stick with Intel for the moment.
