it used to give me a BSOD when I tried to update Intel chipset driver. I tried 2 times and it gave the same result. same for Driver Easy but it was other driversThey can. But Driver Booster does a very good job of finding the correct drivers and as a result, rarely causes problems. When using Driver Booster (and some of the others I use), I usually let it install every driver it finds.
Moreover, it's the same for all driver updater. The manufacture writes the latest version for this hardware is ABC but the driver updaters usually find a newer version which is for other hardware from the same manufacture
I downloaded the latest version of intel graphic driver from intel or my wifi driver from mediatek -> rebooted. Then, scanned with Driver Easy and driver booster, they still found an update for them. I tried to update. The drivers installed were more unstable than the official ones, obviously
perhaps with Desktops, it's easier but for laptops, it's better to update manually
