Device Drivers act as a translator so your external devices can work.
Drivers must be kept up-to-date to ensure maximum system performance.
Pose Security Issues
If drivers are not regularly updated, your computer is put at risk of attack.
What is a Device Driver?
How do Outdated Drivers Affect PC Performance?Outdated drivers not only impact PC performance but the overall stability of the system. As device drivers become old and obsolete, they cause a number of computer functionality symptoms, including system freezes, malfunctioning devices, video game lag —even a system crash. Compounding the issue, many users have more device drivers on their system than they realize, leading to a buildup of junk files on their hard drive. Any hardware device requires a driver: from your Wi-Fi router to your mouse and keyboard, even your video card works with one. As operating systems receive updates and upgrades, drivers need to be updated too so they can stay compatible. Drivers are also updated to correct glitches in the drivers themselves or to patch discovered security issues.
