    Is there a reasonably safe third party program for mass checking and then updating drivers? Or would it be better for me not to open up that can of worms. And if so is there a way to do the same thing in windows Device Manager?

    :)

    Third Party Driver Updates

    Check to see if you have installed a 3rd party program. Look in Programs and Features or Apps & features to see what you have installed.

    Rule 1: Don't update drivers unnecessarily.
    Rule 2: Only use manufacturer provided drivers for laptops.
    Rule 3: Never use driver updaters in Win 10 'cos Uncle Microsoft looks after them for you and always knows best.

    However
    Ignore Rule 2 if your manufacturer doesn't support Win 10 for your laptop.
    Ignore Rule 3 when it turns out Uncle Microsoft has got it wrong, but turn to your manufacturer first especially if you have a laptop.
    Ignore Rule 3 if you're really really struggling to find an appropriate driver.

    Bottom line
    Only use a driver updater as a last resort if you're struggling.

    My example: I updated my PC from 32 bit Win 8 to Win 10 Pro. No driver problems.
    Later I clean installed Win 10, x64. There was no way I could find a coprocessor driver, and HP doesn't have drivers for this for Win 10. I used DriverMax, and immediately had my problem fixed.

    I have found that IObit Drive Booster 3 works very well for checking for driver updates. It has a free version and the only difference is that you have to manually update the drivers to be doing automatically which is something I prefer anyway. Of course you can always roll back to a previous driver if you have problems.
