    My wife's Acer Aspire laptop with Windows XP, sometimes gets a message and I don't know who it's from or where it came from. It doesn't say Windows or Microsoft anywhere.

    "Would you like to update now?"

    "There is a new version of DriverUpdate available."

    "Yes or No"


    What is this? And should I click "Yes" or "No". [I've clicked "No" so many times I think the button is busted.]

    Thank you

    If you have a program such as DriverUpdate, and have clicked the radio button to prompt for updates, then you will receive this message whenever a newer version of a program is available.

    for example, I have Ccleaner and Defraggler from Piriform, every now and then a newer version is available, and I am prompted to update, which I do as newer versions fix any security loopholes in a program.

    However if you do not want the program Driver update, then just uninstall.

    Elizabeth from Florida.... are you my wife and you're just messing with me? :D

    Seriously, thanks for the help.

    I was too sleepy to do a search for the answer. I appreciate the help.
