This is a standard type of hardware — you should never need to update this basic mouse driver; it’s included in Windows.
Here’s the thing — you don’t actually need to regularly update your drivers.
We tested and reviewed the best driver update software because many of these programs provide an easier way for novices to update drivers if they find the Windows Update tool clunky.
After multiple rounds of tests, Smart Driver Updater came out on top as the best driver update software overall because it was the best at finding outdated drivers and providing trustworthy sources for updating them.
It’s basically just the Windows tech support phone call scam, but they’re only going after people who have already proven they’ll spend money for questionable software.
We’ve seen driver-updating tools pop up with suggestions to install drivers for printers that were never connected to the PC. It’s named “Driver Support” and uses the same business model, charging a year for driver updates.
It’s even more ridiculous — it says our computer’s “Driver Health Is Low! To fix this, we need to update our “HID-compliant mouse” driver.
For example, when I compared the free and full version, I found driver updates in the professional program that the free software didn't find, which is too bad.
Also, features like automatically downloading and backing up drivers, and automatic program updates, are not options in the free version.
