    Use driver collector. You can export the drivers to any folder you wish.

    I believe you can just go to windows sys32, though I have never tried to use these to install from scratch, it does contain the windows cache of drivers.

    This thread might help...

    Backing up drivers before Clean Install

    There's something else out there too... Can't remember which of the walking encyclopedia posted up about it though.

    driver genius pro 7

    We use the trial version of driver genius. It doesn't find the most up to date drivers for you (you have to pay for it before that option is enabled) but it does find all the drivers on your machine and allow you to export them into a folder, a zip archive or as an exe. Which is all we need it to do.

    Just have to reinstall it after so long, only problem.

    You do know thats illegal and a breach of the EULA generally so I would strongly recommend you dont do this with trial ware. If you need to reinstall it because you use/need it then buy it. If its too expensive then find another way rather then breaking the rules of trials.

    For a free way, as per continks post, check out:
    DriverMax for Windows Vista and Windows XP - easily reinstall all your Windows drivers within a few minutes

    For driver updates you could try SUMO:
    KC Softwares
    It does not let you directly update but it can let you know that there is a update.
