Has anyone downloaded the Uniblue Drive Scanner as advertised by HTG? If so, how do you like it...

Rick, it's one of the ad's at the top of the site pages. I'm bad about updating my drivers and was wondering if the software was any good.

The ads only show up if you aren't logged in (figured there's no reason our dedicated forum members should see ads)... here's the link granny is talking about: http://www.howtogeek.com/go/go.php?link=ds9

I've tested out that application, it seems to work fairly well and do what it says. It has an option to backup or restore your drivers as well as check for updates... but of course you have to pay to download and install any updated drivers.

Note that I'm not necessarily recommending it as a must have application, but it worked fine for me.

techgranny,

Oh, now I understand.

I really can't say because as you know, I build only Asus machines and of course they update the board drivers until they are complete and right. As for other components, I go directly to the Manufacturer's site for driver updates.

Maybe someone else can help on this one.

Kindest Regards,

Rick, you know I don't know Asus from Isis:) Since I'm so bad at driver updating, I decided to take the plunge.

First, I didn't know I had 128 drivers; that's mind boggling. Seven of them were out-of-date and I didn't even realize one was causing a problem until I updated it. So far, I like Uniblue!

techgranny,
That's Great !!!!
Can't imagine a machine having 128 Drivers so think you meant a 128 files total were found to be out of date.
That's why this kind of software and service is provided and is GOOD.
I realize some folks prefer to have a nice up-to-date computer and use it but not have to put up with the aggravation of trying to build one. :) :)
Kindest Regards,
Rick P.♦:)
