The Windows Update service has changed over the years as Microsoft released new versions of Windows.
Yet the greater waste of time is waiting 10 minutes for a computer to boot up completely, just so you can check your email. Drivers installed at the factory are quickly replaced with better, more up-to-date drivers that driver software developer's produce after the initial release of the device.

Drivers are small pieces of software that contain the instructions and function sets for a hardware device.
Each hardware device has it's own unique driver that instructs the device how to communicate with other hardware devices and the operating system. A driver instructs a CPU (processor), how to communicate with a hard-drive.
