    Only critical updates. They have an update for my NVidia 5700 video
    card, but I would rather trust the card maker.

    Don't bother getting driver update from Windows Update. Get your driver
    updates from the hardware manufacturer.

    I would not somethime it work fine sometime it don't and you need to
    restore but in that case XP restore did work fine for me, my point is
    that if it was installed by window right from a clean install and you
    don't want other then the generic go for the Window driver update but if
    you did install from the manufacturer driver do your self a favor and
    install update from the manufacturer because they work better in my opinion.
