Update Driver Software?

Hi I've been getting the BSOD seemingly caused by 'ntkrnlpa.exe could anyone recommend any driver software? There seems to be a lot out there that misinforms you of which drivers actually need updating! just so that you purchase their product.
My OS is Vista & all updates are installed. Is there any free software out there?
Thx

Hi Joecool,
You could download Secunia's Personal Software Inspector (PSI) This is free and will alert you to any software/driver updates needed.

Re: Update Driver Software?

Isn't ntkrnlpa the kernel? Not sure if a driver update is going to help. If you've recently done any updates I suggest a roll-back might be a more appropriate first step.
