I would follow coastie's advice.
Using driveragaent is very tricky for those who don't know which driver to use
because they (the app) will offer you more than one choice. This is where it
Unless you are having problems with one of the modules or installed hardware,
I would recommend also to avoid updating unnecessarily. This could yield more
problems than you already have "If any".

Otherwise, if it ain't broke...
And FWIW, the fact that a product is advertised in PC World doesn't mean that it's endorsed by the magazine, or even that anyone in editorial has ever used it. Just as the ad sales department doesn't tell editorial what to write, editorial doesn't tell ad sales what to do.
