Although I don't know of a program that will tell you if all of your drivers are up-to-date, I do know that depending on the manufacturer for the product you're looking for (EX: Creative Labs makes the Sound Blaster Sound Cards) then sometimes these manufacturers have a tool that you can install which will tell you if you need to update. Some manufacturers do it, and some don't. As far as how to install them, it depends on the driver. The manufacturer will without doubt give you instructions.
