CCleaner shows driver updates are still available (new IdeaCentre 5)

2021-07-02, 2:04 AM

I have a new IdeaCentre 5-14ARE05 Desktop - Type 90Q3. As part of my setup procedure, I used Windows Update and Lenovo System Update to scan the system and download program and driver updates. Later I ran both scans again, and both now indicate that the system is up to date.


However, when I run the Driver Updater unit of CCleaner 5.82 it shows 15 drivers that could still be updated. This my first factory-built and warrantied PC in years. I don't know if I should be going around changing drivers on my own if the OS and OEM scanners show no need.


Could anyone provide their experience or advice on this? Thanks.

Hi there,


I would recommend sticking to Windows Update and Lenovo Vantage for updates. CCleaner may provide drivers for a different machine and it's best to stick to the operating system and manufacturer updates.
