For a guide , check : https://www.wagnardsoft.com/content/ddu-guide-tutorial

Recommended usage:

-You MUST disconnect your internet or completely block Windows Update when running DDU until you have re-installed your new drivers.
-DDU should be used when having a problem uninstalling / installing a driver or when switching GPU brand.
-DDU should not be used every time you install a new driver unless you know what you are doing.
-DDU will not work on network drive. Please install in a local drive (C:, D: or else).
-The tool can be used in Normal mode but for absolute stability when using DDU, Safemode is always the best.
-If you are using DDU in normal mode, Clean, reboot, clean again, reboot.
-Make a backup or a system restore (but it should normally be pretty safe).
-It is best to exclude the DDU folder completely from any security software to avoid issues.
Note: If you have issues for downloading the file, it could be one of your extension interfering with our hotlink protection.

Here is an application from one of my partners that we recommend.
It is a useful tool that may help you update outdated drivers.

Hey, what's the difference between the two versions offered, the "Portable / Self-extracting" one, and the "Installer,"? It's been a while (long while) since I used DDU (maybe 3+ years really) so I have no clue. The guide doesn't really say which one is right for you or whatever circumstance.

Installer will install DDU (adding stuff to the registry to be able to uninstall it via add/remove program) while the portable are just the plain DDU exe files.

It's mostly just a preference. Some prefer installing but some prefer portable and if they want to remove DDU they just delete the folder.
