Best free Device Driver update tools for Windows 7 operating system

What are device drivers ?

A device driver is a software developed to make the hardware in computer to work. Device driver software consists of an interface for communicating with the device, through the specific computer bus or communications system that the hardware is connected to, providing commands to and receiving data from the device. In short, we can say "device driver software acts as an interface between the Hardware device and operating system"

Why should we use Device Driver update tools ?

We can update each device driver from the manufacturer website manually.
