    D. Never Check Windows Update For New Drivers

    The correct answer is a combination of options that allows for the most control over driver updates. Checking automatically for drivers each time a device is connected ensures that the system stays up to date with the latest drivers. Asking the user whether to perform the check when a new device is connected gives the user the option to choose whether they want to update the drivers or not. Never checking Windows Update for new drivers ensures that the system does not automatically update drivers from Windows Update. This combination allows the user to have control over driver updates while still staying up to date with the latest drivers.
