And THAT, is your problem.

Don't ever use ANY "driver updater" programs. They are all purely trash. Complete BS.

You update drivers yourself. There is no magical mystery to updating your drivers. If there is a newer driver than what you KNOW you already have installed, on your motherboard product page, then you download and install it, if you wish or if you need to. That includes chipset, network drivers (Ethernet/Wi-Fi), sound chipset drivers and any third party USB or SATA drivers present on your board.

For the graphics card or any other peripherals, you get the driver directly from the manufacturers website. There is NEVER, EVER, ever, ever, ever ANY need to obtain drivers through any other channel or source. Always, ALWAYS get your drivers directly from the manufacturer of your motherboard or component. The only exception to that, really, is that for AMD or Intel chipset drivers there are often newer or more relevant drivers available directly from AMD or Intel than there is on the motherboard manufacturer's website. Compare release dates. If the one on the board manufacturers site is newer, then use that. For laptops, always use the laptop manufacturers drivers. Always.

These are the drivers you want to install, and I would highly recommend installing all of them because at this point you really have NO idea what is installed.

Uninstall Driver booster, and never use any crap like that again. If you are lucky, you won't have to reinstall Windows. But if installing the above drivers and then restarting the system after the final driver installation is complete doesn't fix the problem, then you may have to. If so, let me know, and I'll show you the CORRECT way to do it.

Agreed. Or at least make sure Windows defender is updated and run that. I have multiple MB lifetime licenses and I don't even use them anymore because WD seems to do just as well these days. In fact, several in depth reviews show it doing a better job than any other virus or malware scanner. Plus, it's already there, no matter what, so might as well use it. But either way, I agree it's a good idea to do a full scan using one of the two.

Hi, i updated Intel B250 chipset drivers and Nvidia GTX 1050 TI drivers.
I don't install the Realtek and Intel LAN / Ethernet drivers, why i dont have sound and internet problems.

But still having problems with games.
What do you think?

(I already scan with MalwareBytes, but don't detect nothing
out of the ordinary)

After that, I would do a complete reformat and reboot of Windows. As above, manually install the needed drivers direct from your manufacturer source/website.
Windows 10 actually does a half decent job of "auto" installing many of your drivers although they likely aren't the most up to date available.

"Out of the ordinary"? If it finds anything at all, it's a concern.
MalwareBytes detect me PUP (potentially unwanted type items) of Google Chrome.
Is not a virus. They are generated by browsing in different pages.
Other than that, MalwareBytes didn't detect something from Driver Booster.

Just the same, I would advise uninstalling DB and avoiding any such programs. All they do is prey on the naive and make you pay (often times in more ways than one) for something that's relatively easy to do yourself.

One driver, ANY DRIVER, can affect ALL OTHER DRIVERS, so if there is an updated driver available for your hardware, and you are HAVING problems, you update. Not doing so means you are not interested in pursuing all avenues that might lead to a fix.
