Default Question Re: Drivers! Please Help!

I have a quick question regarding device drivers for windows. Many times when I go to device manager and click update driver, windows tells me it's already up to date. However, if I go to the products site, I can find a newer driver. I don't know why windows does this, but one of my friends once told me it only will update if the product is a certain number of updates out of date...

Anyway, my question is what can I do to make sure all the components on my pc keep up to date with their absolute latest drivers?

windows update manager i think has some of the newer drivers but not the newest. In other words, if a device has a new driver come out, windows device manager wont get it right away. Plus i think it updates the best to your computers specs
