I use the latest (free) version of Quihu 360 Total Security.
Regularly recently when I do a Full Check I get a popup screen ""Driver Updater can update 3 driver(s) to help keep your computer running smoothly."

I ignore it as I cannot see what drivers it claims. I have always thought it is best to only update drivers from the original program site.

Am I being super cautious? Guidance appreciated , please.

Driver updater is like malware - often wanting you to purchase something or if it is run can put in incorrect drivers. I usually uninstall it with Revo uninstaller in advanced mode, then run a malware scan often finding pieces left over.
