    Had to reinstall win 10 on one of my itx pc's as windows got stuck in updates.

    Windows has fully updated itself now.

    I have installed the graphics drivers but do I still in need to do chipset, audio etc or does windows take care of it now.

    It's an odd board and hard to find drivers for.

    Asus P8H61-I/RM/SI

    Also i keep having this come up when running unigine heaven.

    Windows should take care of drivers for you, just check device manager for any yellow !s denoting missing drivers.

    The second sounds like you're missing the Visual C++ runtime... here is, iirc the correct one - x86 and x64 [if you're on 64-bit you'll need both]

    I would also suspect that the usual P8H61-I drivers would work just fine.

    As above... you’re missing the Visual C++ jargon. :)

    Yeh I though it was something to do with c++ but wasn't sure.

    I think I used the standard drivers last time and I only have one yellow exclamation mark but it says the driver is installed guess I'll have to Google that one.

    It should say why it's thrown a !... could be something as simple as 'Pending Restart'

    I usually install the intel chipset drivers directly as the initial set on Windows Update is more generic. But after that it seems to keep update.

    And the sound drivers direct are probably newer than WU but you only need to upgrade if you get problems.

    I typically update my own drivers as they're often more up-to-date than those found on the WHQL list that Windows uses.
