Has anyone used Driver Genius 10

Up till now I've mainly used DriverMax, but I've had many system crashes and rejections using their drivers. So when Serif offered this 49% off deal, at £12.95 instead of £25.52. I got to thinking perhaps i should take it.

I never replace drivers,unless theres a problem,and then from the manufacturers website for free.Others may have a different opinion.

why not just set up a fav folder with a favourite link for each diver on your system and a list of driver versions. then manually check once a month no errors that way.

Never used paid for programs for driver updates, found them unreliable. I use driver Pack Solution (free) every driver you will ever need. http://drp.su/ As above, if working fine why update?

"Having out-of-date drivers can cause your PC to freeze or run slowly, and force applications to quit."

I know the above is true, I had an ASUS Mobo crying out for new drivers, but ASUS were saying I had the latest ones. DriverMax said they had what my elen year old Mobo needed, however they didn't work. In the end the Mobo went belly up. After I'd coddled together another PC with bits salvaged from the old one and was back online I received an email from ASUS saying they had the drivers my Mobo needed! Tell me about it?

Well all you have to lose is thirteen squids! Before you mess around with your drivers, might be worth making a backup of them.

Double driver will do this and it's a freebie. Have a read here; Double Driver.
