has any one used this site
& if so what were the results?
does it live up to the hype,
& deliver on exacting driver
identification? JC.

Not used that but as with windows updates, the all-in-one cure alls are known to sometimes update you to "older" less compatible drivers.

The best way is to learn your hardware/system and software. Check for updates regularly by going to their sites.

If I was going to use one, and I wouldn't buy it, it would be Driver Genius. Let it tell you what it thinks is out of date and then go find out/them yourself. Google is your friend!! (allegedly) :D

I've just run Driver Doc. I have 21 critical driver updates.

That surprises me as the ones its telling me are critical updates are the ones that are installed..

Never change a driver unless you have a good reason for doing so. Xhi's 1st rule of computing applies. "If it ain't broke don't fix it."

If it is broke always go directly to the computer/device manufacturer's web site to obtain the latest driver.
