    Sometimes I just hide the new driver because I don't want to fix it if it isn't broke.

    A good case in point is I updated the drivers for my mouse & keyboard at the same time.
    Both stopped working.
    Being stupid I did not know how to revert to old drivers without a mouse or keyboard even on a restart.
    Had to use factory recovery discs to reinstall Win8 home.
    Installed Macrium & boot time recovery option.
    Used latest Macrium image to restore to latest image.
    (8,1 Pro)
    Having a Microsoft account it activated nicely.
    I have not touched drivers for mouse or keyboard since.
    They work good so why update them ?

    We have the same saying in Linux:
    "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

    Drivers are updated only when it is absolutely required.

    There are firmware/bios updates for my computer but I ignore them.
    It runs good without them.
