    Updating Drivers


    Do I need to "update" drivers? I see "partners" of windows saying I have 15 out dated drivers that need updating and I should install their software..or whatever it is..to update. Obviously I'm a newby at all this. Should I? And if not..is there some other action I should be taking? TYIA

    If you do not have it installed yet, I wonder, how it can tell, you have outdated drivers, sounds like a scam.
    Even if you use a software for checking drivers, it is better to find the download yourself from a trusted source.

    I totally agree with TairikuOkami.

    songbirdfoy What app is telling you that your drivers need updating? When are you seeing this message?
