Why Should I Download the Driver Support Tool for my Windows Driver?

Downloading the correct Windows Drivers for your system can be an extremely difficult task. Hidden driver issues can cause PC instability, device malfunctions, or may cause your PC to stop working entirely.

    Download Link does not work

  2. This MIGHT be good or not. It doesn’t look as if I’m going to find out as they want payment up front!

    No Good cant even install it, it thinks I have another program installing which aint the case. Dont waste your time on this download

  4. As usual, another scheme to get money from us up front first, quit scamming us. If you can’t send an actual evaluation copy that can fix at least a minimum of drivers then don’t bother. I feel you are just presenting this crap so you can make moola.

  5. Just another piece of crapware. Why in the world would Windows news suggest to its readers that it downloads a piece of crap that won’t let you do anything unless you buy it. Come on Onuora, this is a good way to loose readers. Are you in on the scam or don’t you check anything out first?????

  6. Another program that you have to purchase to see if it works. It does tell you how many drivers are outdated, but not which ones. There is no sense sending out these programs to test if you have to buy them first.

    I agree. I don’t want to buy a program to see if it works. Can you get a one time free trial or something similar?

  8. George Quigley / August 8, 2014 at 6:49 am /Reply

    Totally unnecessary! Windows 8.1 runs perfectly well for me plus the fact my super technical advisor recommends that such programs be left out. They can do more harm than good.

  9. I agree! If you want us to test this software give us a activation key. I am not paying to just see if it works.

  10. I am always wary of scare-ware, ie software which makes money (often quite a lot) by scaring uninformed users into buying it, with promises such as ‘will make your machine faster’ or ‘will stop system crashes’ or ‘will defragment your disk’ (which is scary if you have an SSD and don’t know the danger of this) or ‘will clean your registry’.

    And in the same category I would put luxury anti-virus software which makes such a pain in the ass of itself that it is worse than a virus. I once tried a free AV product provided to Virgin Media users, and it hung my system because it claimed a .TXT file contained a virus.

    If I have a problem I typically research it on the web and if I can’t fix it that way then I would re-install or refresh the OS or go back to a previous restore point. I am very wary of software that claims to ‘fix’ my system and would certainly never download one of those ‘fix-it’ programs you see on web sites (which are likely to be the equivalent of a rogue trader).

    As for drivers, I would rather let the OS find them for me, which Windows 7 and 8.x are very good at doing, or would look on the vendor’s web site rather than let a 3rd-party app intervene on my behalf (no doubt with a disclaimer saying no responsibility accepted if it bricks your system).

    Sorry to sound so negative but this comes from decades of hard-bitten experience.

  11. I agree with what all arte saying. Onuora, if as I stated in the last software you wanted us to test, why bother if if runs a scan and wants us to purchase the product in order to fix the problems. I thought you were going to try to get us software that we could correctly use with a ONE TIME activation code so that we could test it out. I feel you are wasting our time on this newsletter in regards the testing of diff. software. Please try to get the next pc with a ONE TIME code to try.Thanks

    Yet another “have to pass it to see what’s in it”…..never works out well.

  13. Onuora, Another Software program that has to be purchased to fix any problems. Why not a 1 time activation code to try it to see if it works or not. A pass for me on this one.

    Another program to fix drivers is from Avanquest called Driver Genius. It also has to be purchased, costing $29,95, but at least it shows a lot more Information about a scan. JS

  14. Onuora- The same old song and dance- buy before U try. I on SS so my money is tight.Have a one time try on it at for a test run- Stan

    Thank-You for your information on this subject.

  16. I posted over 11 hours ago and see lots of posts basically stating the same theme. There is an actual DriverIdentifier program available for free for download at the same .com as the program name. Just download, run and register for free. It finds all my drivers and shows me what I might want to upload and even directs me to locations to download. As a benefit, it does not try to scare you that you have to fix them. Onuora, these are the things you should be highlighting to your readers, but I see by your lack of any response to any of these posts so far, if it don’t make you money or capital gain, stick your head in the quagmire of digital hash and don’t address it head on, but try to control social opinion like some other big names do and you know who they are. Get real and provide a real service to your Microsoft users or just go over to the dark side.

    I go directly to the source for drivers. These “driver” programs are just money-makers for the seller and of little value to the customers.

  18. I agree with Dale. IF you do require newer drivers, go to the source (the maker) to get them. Installing add on software that is not catered for by Win Update is not necessary.

  19. Since I won’t spend $39.95 just to “try” this software, I can’t say whether it is worth while or not. The try it offer was no different and no better than the almost weekly popup adware offers for other driver updaters and system tweekers that annoy me regularly. I can say it found 7 outdated drivers, but my regular driver updater found 9, so it is inferier and more expensive then my Advanced Driver Updater from Ashampoo.
