I downloaded and installed this on 31st December. Today it announces that the licence has expired. I don't even install things that are one-year licences, let alone ten day licences.

Is my installation faulty? If so, how do I fix it?

I actually used this and loved it. Updated many outdated drivers and the computer runs better than it was. Problem is I activated it but now it is saying the registration expired! So I guess this giveaway was only for a few days??? I see I am not the only one with this problem too!

Downloaded and installed. Said I had 8 drivers to update and then rebooted. When it started it automatically went to maintenance mode and is giving me all kinds of errors and unrecoverable files. Would Uninstall if my computer would get past maintenance screens. Extremely dissatisfied and may stop visiting and recommending this site - can't afford to risk my business computers and certainly won't risk friend's computers.

NEVER download any drivers unless it's from the manufacturer. Doing so can mess everything up. Not even going to download this simply because they don't say where the "drivers" come from. Use with extreme caution people

Reading all these negative reviews I cannot see how 192 people say it is good. Maybe it is for win 8 but it seems win 7 and 10 do not like it.... thank you all that have win 7 it will save me throwing my computer through the window in frustration.....

It worked just fine for me, on Windows 7 and on Windows 10. But then ten days later it reports that the registration has expired. So it seems that it was a confidence trick, not a giveaway.

As Sandra Taylor · above I had exactly same problems. Loaded some drivers, restarted, and crashed, thank goodness for system restore and Sparktrust PC Cleaner Plus, after some time managed to get my PC working again. Windows 7 Pro, 32gig ram.

Most hardware vendors these days will notify you if they have an updated driver for their device, as will the OS. I fail to see the need for software like this and I wouldn't trust it after reading some of the negative reviews posted here. I do specialized tech support for a living, and if one of my clients installed something like this I'd slap them.

My experiences with driver updater software has been negative. I do not believe these programmes can have the computer make and model of every one going to be able to check, detect and then fix outdated drivers for each and every machine. My laptop had been messed up on a couple of occasions after giving these softwares a chance.... Never again. If i really wish to update or revert a driver i go to my manufactures website where my exact make and model is listed. I don't know how anybody professional or not could advise on using these types of products. Just be very wise if you are going to use this software.

This is a no no for me, look at it after installed, my computer is up to date, the program was looking for updates, all they proposed = OLD DRIVERS. NOWAY JOSE.... Uninstalled windows 10, 64b. Don't fixe it if it's not broken,

I shouldn't even have to say this, but NEVER, EVER accept hardware driver updates from Microsoft Update.

What they offer there are always old, generic, and often buggy drivers that will just mess your system up.

Reply   |   Comment by DD  –  9 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Funny you should mention that. It seems that every time I was able to allow the windows update something went wrongs and I would get messages from the protection software I have installed particularly Kerish Doctor. now when I shut down my computer it is downloading windows updates but they never take and I have a silly little flag telling me there is a problem and when I do a check even the windows checker cannot fix it. So it must be that they are not good enough to get passed my security programs and are blocked. So I just let the software I have to do it's job and I have a good running computer (touch Wood).....

I'm Not relating to this product specifically, but rather to driver updates in general. I was installing a utility to convert mkv to mp4. It insisted I had to update my audio codecs, and wanted to install the k-lite codec pack.

The convertor wouldn't work, and the audio - after the "codec update" was totally pooched. Uninstalled the utility & the codec pack, everything was back to what is for me - normal.

If it isn't broke, don't fix it.

And the other that's been oft repeated here; use the drivers from the manufacturer of your product.

Reply   |   Comment by John  –  9 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

The old rule of thumb about drivers has been if something is not broke do not tinker with it . This goes for registry cleaners and driver updaters . If you are going to update the drivers look to see who it is that manufacturers the device you wish to update motherboard video sound etc . and get it or check to see if there is an update available a lot of these so called tools just grab generic drivers and you end up doing more harm than good . So if everything is running well and you have time to kill get to know your computer and its workings and go to the site directly saves a lot headaches

This is the problem with the drivers, there are two types, generic to windows and specific from manufacturers.
Now combined those two with different hardware, software, set ups and generics and you get a mush-mesh of communication requests trying to get to the CPU for processing.
You can not change the windows drivers specific to the OS and you can not just assume the new specific drivers are compatible with your hardware and therefore, sooner or later your computer will fail, not because of the new drivers, but because the combinations of set ups may not be compatible with each other.
Example. I have 3 different types of hard drives that require specific order of start ups and some drivers after installed will move up the order on the start up ladder and mess up your system.
If your computer is working fine, installing new driver may disrupt a sequence of order at start up and ruin your day, not because the new drivers are bad, but because the order of starting may not be compatible with your OS.
Everyone of us want fast computer, but the drivers may or may not be the vehicle to do that. Even the manufacturer drivers will fail if you change or upgrade your computer.
The new drivers are not designed to speed up your computer, they are there to fix some glitches and as a PR pretend stunt that the company still care for the consumer.

I am an electrical and computer engineer and have been involved with desktops since the early 80s. Driver update programs should always be used with a great deal of caution since they will often misidentify drivers and versions due in part to manufacturer specific versions of common components (dell and hp for example). Generic drivers will very often not work and cause your system to become unstable. There is one school of thought that users shouldn't update drivers on a stable system. If your system is working well, leave the drivers alone. If you are technically inclined you can use programs like this to give you a lost of potential candidates for updating. Check each one it claims is out of date and confirm without any doubt it has properly identified your hardware and current driver before even considering updating. Then, go to the hardware vendors website yourself and download the latest driver. Never trust any software to do it all automatically. As always, make sure you have an recent complete backup image and create a restore points before every driver update. Create a restore point -> update driver -> reboot and test -> repeat. Just my opinion based on many years of experience. I've seen lots of people turn stable systems into unstable wrecks using driver update software and registry cleaners. If you are smart and cautious you can use them to your benefit.

Does NOT backup selected drivers, but makes an empty directory with the driver name it updated.

Does save the updated driver installation:



So I moved that to C:\Drivers for my own reference.

So, how to reverse an update?

I guess you can use Windows Device Manager ... but if you are smart enough to use Device Manager, why use this?

We're on our own -- this software is NOT ready for prime time yet, too many necessary driver management features missing.

Blue tooth does not work after installing the driver through this software! I have Samsung Laptop with windows 7 64bits- System crashed and Blue Screen appeared. I Restore the whole system with AOMEI Onekey Recovery(freeware) perfectly.Total waste of time with this software. Finally No Software is better than Driver Booster 3(freeware or pro) in this Category-Driver Booster never let me down even for a single time from the last two years.

Installed smoothly. Clean appearance. Doesn't hound you to buy additional software or upgrades. Initially I was very impressed. Decided to use the "Backup" function first- a safer test, plus it might help save my test system (XP-Pro SP3) in the event of bad driver update. But the "Backup" function doesn't work! It creates 30+ sub-folders, each with a text file stating 'no driver needed'. While I'm sure many/most drivers [are] included with Windows, I can't believe my aged system had NO drivers to back up. I've sent their support an email. Meantime, I'm hesitant to allow it to update the 5 drivers flagged as old. LOOKS to have potential, and their pricing is excellent, but......gotta work! Checked sites touted- Majorgeeks, Brothersoft and Tucows had no record of it. Softpedia's version is much older ( vs today's 10.0) and has several black eyes in the reviews. Suspecting this will be a 'pass' for me.

Update to earlier review: Company responded, acknowledging the backup feature was broken for my configuration. I updated the 5 drivers. Have since restarted with no issues to report. Cautiously optimistic- and a little impressed that I received a response on New Year's Eve.

Backup does not work, just gets a txt message for each of the 92 drivers, saying driver not required. Please explain and or fix. Thank you for the program, installed without a hitch and works GREAT otherwise. Thank you very much!

I'm not a tech, but I've often found that driver updates should be selected and installed individually and then checked. Or better to run a driver update program prepared only by the maker of the hardware, such as Intel or HP. Sometimes, an individual driver update isn't so good, and I roll back. Also learned the hard way - if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Agree. Downloaded one of these a while back on GOTD and software kept on 'updating' 200MB video card driver every few days. Got rid of it.

Hi, I downloaded and ran the program. It denotes that the drivers all update. No ficticious running of required drivers or popup to show to convert to premium or anything of the website. so far so good. May be that i may not be noted about future update of drivers . But by experience, i wish the giver site and also gotd "good give away of the day"

Installed and run and it said I had 22 outdated drivers on my windws 7 64 bit ultimate. Let ito update them, had to restart the prgram several times as it kept just closing down for some reason,. then it crashed my computer while installing updates for the USB drivers. After several attemps to restart my computer using the start windows normally where it alwas blue screened, I tried to start in safe mode but it blue screened again. Eventually it started after selecting start up repair.Uninstalled it after wasting 45 minutes of my time.

Never let programs of this type locate and install drivers. Once they have identified out of date drivers, go to the OEM or hard vendor sites, and locate the updates yourself. Only install one update at a time until you've had time to assess it.

Driver update programs are dangerous left to themselves.

Reply   |   Comment by Anna  –  9 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+12)

Installed on Windows 10 64 bit.

The first scan was incredibly quick and it found 3 outdated drivers.

Allowed it to install all 3 and the process was lightning fast.

In fact 2 fast because at one point in the process it claimed to be creating a restore point but it was too quick to be true and upon checking the recent restore points, it had not done so.

There is a nice option to allow you to request a driver if required.

I tested the option to backup the drivers and was amazed at just how quick it seemed to carry it out and upon checking the backup folder there was a folder created for each driver but unfortunately, every one of them had nothing but a readme.txt file with the text 'This device requires no driver'.

So it seems not to be compatible with Windows 10, although to be fair, it doesn't claim to be.

Their website shows Windows 10 on the OS list. Now sure why they did not list it here.

http://www.otweak.com/dup/ says "Download 5.7 Mb, version 10.0 for Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 10", whereas
http://www.otweak.com/dup/sysreq/ only lists Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8. So it's not quite clear if Windows 10 is officially supported.
