  1. I've been using Driver Booster (Free) for years now and I can't complain. All of my drivers are 100% updated. However, the Driver Booster Pro is sort of a rip-off, because you don't have to pay anything to update your drivers, so don't buy it, it's just not worth it.
  2. I would no more trust that than asking my cat how to update the PC.

    Just get the drivers from the manufacturers website if you need an update.

    No. There are only three ways to reliably obtain drivers.

    1. Windows Update. Microsoft provides WHQL verified versions of thousands of vendor drivers. WHQL drivers are stress tested for stability. The drivers in Windows Update are stable but not always current.

    2. OEM websites. Many OEMs repackage vendor drivers with their own installer. This is often the case with custom motherboard drivers and drivers for OEM hardware such as laptop lights. OEMs often suck at software development so it may be a better idea to go with reference drivers provided directly by the manufacturer whenever possible.

    3. Manufacturer websites. This is the go-to source for the most up to date reference drivers including beta drivers. Reference drivers and beta drivers may not be compatible with some OEM specific features such as switchable graphics on laptops (this is less a problem now than it was a few years ago).
