Locating just 10+ updated drivers can be very tiresome and you will always have the risk of finding drivers that are actually not the newest versions.

Old drivers can cause lower performance and crashes. Some old drivers also represent a security risk.
Most PC crashes are caused by outdated or conflicting drivers. Older drivers can lead to system errors, crashes and slow performance.
Old and faulty drivers can result in blue screen crashes and other performance issues that can result in your hardware will not work properly, slow web surfing, slow PC startup, crashes, and slow computer performance.
Hardware manufacturers regularly update drivers, in many cases to correct conflicts, stability, and performance issues. DRIVERfighter will scan your computer, find your old drivers and create a list where you can see the new drivers available and you can then choose which drivers you want DRIVERfighter to download and install on your PC.

If you experience that your monitor settings are reset after driver update you need to set your monitor settings again by going to your monitor settings in Windows.
The reason this happens is most likely that Windows was not able to keep the settings during the driver update and therefore they were reset.

No, Windows update only updates your Windows installation and does not update important drivers for your motherboard, Bluetooth drivers, video card drivers, Ethernet drivers etc.

We strongly suggest that you close all other programs before updating your drivers and that you do not use your computer during the update as this could make programs or even hardware fail.
