Driver Downloads

I have recently come across a website called Driver Robot that says it will update drivers on my computer. Can anyone tell me if the site is reliable before I allow it to tinker with my computer?

for driver to be safe i always goto to the official website of my motherboard and download drivers from there.

same with sound & graphics drivers.

I avoid driver detection software as they often get it wrong

i concur with sunnystaines best to go to manufacturers website may take a bit longer but at least you know what you are getting

A lot of these drivers are by other sources, not the manufactures. "if it aint broke ,dont fix it"

My advice is to stay clear. A friend had it on his laptop and it couldn't find the driver for his wlan card.
