I'm using DriverMax Free (if there is better please advise) for my driver updates. When I try to d/l update for the USB Composite Device I get a fast blue screen full of text then an  auto restart. The device I'm trying to update is a Logitech mouse.

To add to that article linked to by SpywareDr, some good advice I got way back in the beginning of my engineering life, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

 

You should only ever go looking for drivers when the original ones fail. Gamers of course are different as far as graphics cards are concerned, but for other hardware drivers, leave well enough alone.

As he said in that article any new or security related driver updates that should be applied, usually come with the normal Windows updates.
