I downloaded Driver Detective some weeks ago after reading someone elses message on here.
I went to run it & it comes up with 27 problems.
Is the idea to just let the program take over any/all drivers,,,, or do I need to check &/or stipulate which things to look at ?
thanks

Some fairly poor reviews for it here.

click here

There is Driver Max which you can get the free version but it will only update 2 drivers a day.

Thanks BM:
Not heard of Driver Max, but will look into it.
Same question tho': "do I let it do whatever it wants",,,, or do I 'pick'n'choose' ? I guess most of my drivers are a bit aged (cept NVidia which I did about a month ago)
cheers

do I let it do whatever it wants

you should do nothing if you require drivers go to the manufacturers website and download them

You could take a look at Driver Genius (not free)click here which updates,backs up and reinstalls, handy if you ever need to reinstall O/S.

It should tell you the difference from the old driver to the new one.Then it is up to you if you want to download them.
Some of those programs will give you the same update every time you run it so always better checking what ones you have already downloaded.
Like Shuffty says it is always better going to the manufacturers website and download them.
But even then I am never sure if it is the correct ones that I am downloading.
27 problem updates is a lot for any computer so not sure if I would chance it.
