    You are asking for trouble by using a third-party scanner to look for and install driver updates.
    They are notorious for providing incorrect and outdated drivers.

    If you have a factory-brand computer, you should look for driver updates at its support site.
    If you have a self-built computer, you should look for driver updates at its motherboard's support site.

    A description of your computer or its motherboard would be helpful.

    Your Intel DQ67SW motherboard was introduced about 7-1/2 years ago and has an Intel Q67 chipset.
    HERE is the Intel driver downloads site for it.
    As you can see, it has no driver downloads (including chipset) for Windows 10 32/64-bit.

    All the drivers you need for the motherboard are included in Windows 10 for that particular chipset.

    Also, don't use third party driver updater. Either manually install drivers as you need them or use the manufacturer's tool if they have one. Intel does have a driver updater.
