driver update software

  MICKY BOY 18:51 27 Sep 2006

I’m thinking of buying a driver update software. Has any body got any advice about good or bad software?
I have no idea and there seems to be a lot of different types and I don’t want to spend money on a bad product.

windows will do this for you, but if it ain't broke, leave it...

Windows will not update graphic drivers, scanner, printer and all the other drivers needed to keep up to date.

I agree with STREETWORK on this - if it ain't broke, why 'fix' it?

Try Start > All Programs > Windows Update. Click the Custom button.

The first port of call for any drivers updates is the manufacturer's website - you don't need to buy software to achieve it.

If the first choice doesn't work then there are other equally satisfactory ways such as click here, which posts updates on the day they are issued (sometimes even before they are on the manufacturers' websites).

Drivers update software is usually a US led idea - you have to pay for quite a bit of the software we take for granted, including Bios updates..:-)
