    Use the Vendor site or MS, preferably in that order. 3rd party Driver Update Tools/Suites/Magicians/Etc. are snake oil.


    Even worse they are SNEAKERWARE or SUCKERWARE. They will say we've found the driver (nothing that you can't do yourself) but then say "In order to access that part of the site you have to Go Pro --i.e PAY !!!.

    Avoid these sites like the plague.

    There is no good reason to install and use a driver installer program.

    It`s just not needed.

    I have had good results with snappy driver installer. It's free.

    All computer components can be recycled if disposed through the correct channels. We're generating more waste by running old hardware that consume a lot of unnecessary power.

    There is a reason why support for old apps and operating systems have an expiry date. One being security, another being compatibility with new technology. Final reason is money. It's ridiculous to support something that is old, outdated and insecure when there exist something newer.

    Life moves forward and so does technology.

    Don't get me wrong though. I DO use 20 year old hardware because I can and it's fun to Retro a bit. :)
    I drive an 18 year old Acura 3.2TL with well over 110K miles on it and use an 8 year old PC which I have no intentions of getting rid of. As long as it boots, I will use it and if it can't , I will fix it if possible.
