    Hello,
    Is there any way to scan my system and just find all available driver updates? If not, is there any easier way to update drivers and/or firmware then just going to each manufacturer's website and downloading? Thanks :)

    you can use Everest Home to tel you what version your drivers are. But when it comes to Firmware updates be careful. If the Firmware Update fails you could end up with a component that no longer works. Not all devices with Flash Upgrades to Firmware are reversable if it should fail.

    hi dusty long-time-no-see. I agree here. Only update the firmware you absolutely need to (i.e. things aren't working right and the manufacturer recommends you flash). You better be on a good battery backup in that case.
