Managing Device Drivers and PC Resources

Abstract

Startup, networking, drivers—where will the problems end on our PCs? It can indeed safely be said that one of the biggest headaches when it comes to getting PCs working reliably is hardware drivers. A large part of the problem is that Microsoft simply doesn’t control drivers. Sure they have a certification program, and with Windows 10 every device driver must be digitally signed by Microsoft to ensure it’s compatible with the OS and won’t crash, but life is unfortunately more complex than that.
