This operating system is very fast and has also got many extra features when compared to the older versions of Windows operating systems. While you install Windows 7, you have to install drivers in the computer for it to work properly. The drivers will act as an interface between the operating system and the hardware device. When you upgrade the drivers, they will deliver better performance compared to the old drivers.

Remove all viruses
Viruses are unwanted software components which are present in the system. They can harm your system and its components. They will also corrupt system files and programs. Since viruses have got the ability to replicate, you need to remove them as soon as they enter the system. When drivers are corrupt they will not work at all. So you have to install good antivirus software. Many good antivirus software are easily available now. There will be more chances of viruses entering your system when you upgrade the drivers from the Internet.
Before upgrading drivers you need to make sure that the upgraded version of drivers will be compatible with the system requirements. Sometimes Windows 7 will not be compatible with an driver. So whenever you are going to install the latest version version you need to go to the hardware manufacturer’s website and check driver compatibility by entering the details of the operating system. If drivers are not compatible with the hardware device, system or the operating system, they will not function properly.
While upgrading drivers the thing you need to remember is that you have to go to genuine websites. This is because many websites are offering driver upgrades. But unauthorized websites will have corrupt drivers. You are required to enter only the hardware manufacturer’s website or Microsoft websites for upgrading your systems drivers.
