Driver Magician free for 24 hours for those that want to try it.

I have used it myself before but it does tend to through up the same drivers that you have already downloaded so you have to keep a check as to what you have used.

Maybe best nobody else try that download out just now as I seem to be getting some problems with my security program using up 50% of my CPU.

So running a scan to see if it finds anything probably just a hicup.

Everything seems to be all clear and my security program is running normally again after another reboot.So panic over.

[Installing the application requires a bit of extra care because it comes bundled with third party software that may change the settings of your system if you simply go through the setup clicking 'Next'.]

northumbria61 Probably one of those bundled add ons that upset my security program.

For that reason plus I download very little I am going to give it a miss this time but thanks for trying to help.

The problem with this 'free' software is you want it to work and replace drivers after a rebuild. GAOTD released software will only install on the day of release, so in 3 months time when you rebuild your OS and then go to use this driver software, it will not activate. Useless then really after a reinstall.

Give File Hippo a try. You dont have to do anything at all with whatever it finds if you would rather not.

Avoid these types of software as they can and frequently do cause more problems than they say they will solve and I speak through experience.

Will close this now but if anyone thinking of downloading it it has to be downloaded and the keycode entered before 8am tomorrow morning or it will not work after that time.

Anyone thinking of downloading any driver wherever, never ever download an unsigned driver as Microsoft reacts badly to them and your computer will slow down considerably.
