Updating VirtIO on a VM?

I built my current Windows 10 VM with virtio-win-0.1.126-2.iso, and I see now that there is a much newer stable version available. What would I need to do to update my VM with the newest VirtO? Do I need to do a full reinstall? Or is it simply just mounting the disk and then installing the handful of drivers I installed previously?


I ask because I am getting some weird slowdowns and short lockups randomly, and I'm trying to rule out as many potential causes as possible.

You can mount the updated .iso file and then go into Windows 10 and update your drivers there. You'll find them in device manager. 1 is under disk devices, 1 under network adapters, and 2 under system devices. You should also run the updated guest agent.
