Does not update anything - uses Google as a search engine to find updates.
Installed and removed after 30 minutes.

Not worth the time and effort. Does not go to the manufacture site directly, but to a google page that had lots of links.

Thanks for all the comments. I WILL NOT be adding this program to my computer. Sounds downright dangerous, or at best...not a good program to mess with.

I wrote the following comment when Driver Magician 4.8 was available as a giveaway on January 4, 2016.
The more reliable (at that time, at least) seems IOBIT DriverBooster.
I still recommend to update drivers manually and not automatically with this kind of programs.



These kind of software should check outdated drivers and should offer to update them, but they shouldn't create incompatibilities.
They are only useful to check if there are updates, but I think it's better to use device manager and Intel Driver Update Utility to update drivers (in fact, they found nothing).
See the following comparison between DriverMagician and its competitors:

DriverBooster
1) Realtek High Definition Audio

DriverMagician
1) intel chipset device software - mainboard
2) realtek high definition audio driver - audio

DriverMax
1) intel hd graphics
2) intel management engine interface
3) intel 6 series/c200 series chipset family SMbus controller - 1c22
4) MS hid-compliant mouse and MS express mouse

DriverEasy

Had this the last time it was offerred, and deleted it pretty quickly. It doesn't really do much, and told me some of my latest drivers were outdated by OLDER available versions (?!). Driver Booster free is better than this- by miles!

This software is a joke to be honest. There's much better driver updating software out there that will actually download the newest drivers and install them for you. GOTD even offered a much better alternative a while back called Driver Updater Pro. I'd stay away from pointless programs like this because it doesn't actually update the drivers. It more or less only notifies you and takes you to the manufacturer's website.

Useless to me… Takes you to the vendor's website if it can determine that (i.e. Intel), if not just gives you a search for different websites with the drivers. I can do this without the program!

I have mixed feelings about this program. It verified that my drivers are up to date, as they should be. I use another driver updating program. Installing this program required me to fill out a questionnaire. I don't mind being asked about my age, or the number of children in my home. I am glad that the income question had a prefer not to answer box.

I have used Dumo free and then switched to Driver Talent free. But the question is: Do we really need to update drivers? The answer is yes and no, but actually it depends only if you're having a problem with your hardware. If everything is working fine, just don't update any driver. It is better to check the hardware manufacturer site to decide if it is necessary or not to update any particular driver. For average users the best advice is to not update drivers at all.

Having read through the majority of comments posted here today regarding "DUMo", I don't want anything to do with it. Thanks to all who take the time to stop and share their experiences. They often provide the reasoning behind download decisions.

with drivers I bide by 'If It's Not Broken, Don't Fix It'.
If a device is working properly, no need to look for a newer driver, that only may cause problems. If you do have a problem, that can be fixed by a new driver, go to the manufacturer site and download the latest version available to match your device and OS version.
No need for an application that takes space, computer resources and promote advertisements.

"If a device is working properly, no need to look for a newer driver, that only may cause problems."

Not picking on you, Gordon, but questioning an all too common, often illogical argument. If you're talking about buying, or are in the biz of selling something new, then yeah, talking about the need for something new makes very good sense. If the way that you do something now works, what are the potential benefits of a change?

But we're not talking about new products -- we're talking about updates to something you already own. Updates are a cost that do not generate income, so why would a company that's in biz to make money engineer & release an update? That's the question that you must ask, since you're the one that owns one of their products, & might very well benefit from whatever update, or worse, possibly be harmed if you don't take advantage of an update.

Now it is extra work, & no one wants or needs anything more added to their to-do lists, but it is often necessary, & that's why so many companies are moving to automatic updates that sometimes, as with Windows 10, you may not be able to avoid. Logically it's best to be proactive when & where you can.

That means checking for updates, & when you find one, researching to answer the question: "Why was it released?" Knowing that you can decide the odds that it might help. Next, research the effects on those who have already installed the update. If there's say a 10% problem rate, but your earlier research revealed the patch is absolutely critical, it might be worth the risk. If OTOH it probably wouldn't make much difference to you, 10% is still 10%, so maybe it's a driver [or other] update to sit out.

"... go to the manufacturer site and download the latest version available..."

That is generally good advice, but, not all manufacturers have drivers available for download. If you're talking about the company that made your PC or laptop or whatever Windows device, they'll often only host updates while that product is still current, & the updates they do host may be very much behind what's been released by companies making one or more of the components used by that device.

There's also another, thankfully rare situation or circumstance... sometimes the company making a component [e.g. Marvell] chooses not to release any updated drivers or firmware, despite one of their products performing very poorly. A company [in this example I think it was Asus] that used that component, not wanting to tarnish their own reputation, developed & released improved drivers & firmware. And that fix helped other products [motherboards] using the same component but made by other companies.

"No need for an application that takes space, computer resources and promote advertisements."

That is of course your opinion & should be respected. A driver app rarely does anything an individual user could not on their own, but some people may find it easier or quicker etc., &/or that it helps avoid often dodgy driver collection sites, & their opinion is to be respected as well. :)

Yea, I thought this would be like Driver Booster but this only links you to the main page of the manufacter of the driver. Meh, I'll keep it to let me know. But I would suggest the creators add a link to the direct download page.

Found that it had also silently installed RelevantKnowledge which is classed as malware by some. I used the uninstall from control panel to install this and Dumo. MalwareBytes still reported 3 PUPs which I'm pretty sure but not 100% were from this too. Now gone.

No problem registering - ?/About/Registation form

Links to drivers it said need updating were just to the generic Intel website not the specific download page. The Intel Driver update tool said the drivers I had were newer than those it offered?

Uninstall this and the Intel tool as both seem to be a waste of time.

If my memory serves me right I think this was offered before on GOTD a good while ago (can't remember when) but I do remember that it installed a lot of third party thing that was hidden away and the so-called driver updates caused no end of problems. Things may have changed since then, I'm not going to risk it. My advise is that if your anti virus or malware say that it is unsafe let them do their job, fairly sure it won't be a false positive.

And if you look at the vendors site you'll see the software is normally free and the paid for features if you choose to donate is a Direct link to manufacturers websites... most OEM systems have this anyway preloaded into the browser. Priority Support... Standard GAOTD T&C is no entitlement to technical support. Enhanced performances... A pointless gramatically stupid non-descript phrase that means the free versions performance is in some undiclosed way crippled. It's a stupid phrase as "performances" should be singular not plural!
IMHO a non-giveaway giveaway today... might as well just come back tomorrow and see what's next.

I cannot agree with your statement "My advise is that if your anti virus or malware say that it is unsafe let them do their job, fairly sure it won't be a false positive."
I don't have anything to do with GAOTD, but I think that they wouldn't want to ruin their reputation allowing any kind of malware to be hidden on their offers. My guess is that their offers are negotiated with their partners during quite some time until they come to terms. And I'm sure they install each of their offered software on test machines. Sometimes things don't work as they intend, but these are exceptions. Anyway, if your anti virus shows something it surely is a false positive!! I've been installing GAOTD software for years and NEVER had any kind of problem.
By the way, this software was last offered in November 10, 2015 in the version 2.3.1.23. Still installed on my PC and will be updated today!!
Thanks GAOTD and KC Software.

And, by the way, KC Softwares also have a program called SUMo, just about the same thing as DUMo, but for software. And I agree with Gordon's comment, that if ain't broken don't fix it. I don't remember the last time I updated a driver, although this could be due to my age - I've started working with computers in 1968!!

The simplest and safest way to up drivers is to visit the manufacturers websites, they are usually to determine the correct driver for whatever it is you need them for. Installing the incorrect driver(s) can play havoc with your system and if you are a novice or not tech minded can hours of frustration. You should create a System Restore Point First.

I am a competent computer user, but I am no technician or programmer. The Softpedia review dated January 2016 says -

"Double-clicking an entry takes you to a dedicated webpage where you can view the latest version number of the driver so you can compare it to your own. If your driver is old, you can update it by browsing the web for the latest package and install it on your PC.

Unfortunately, you will need to do the searching yourself, as the application does not provide you with the possibility to automatically download and install the newest driver. So if you are a novice who is not very familiarized with searching for technical information on the Internet, you might want to steer clear of DUMo.... To wrap it up, DUMo can offer you a comprehensive list of all the drivers installed on your computer so as to allow you to look for the newest version on the web. However, this process is not automated and this makes the app more suitable for PC experts than for beginners."

It may be a very good piece of software, but, thank you GAOTD, I'll err on the side of safety.

"I am a competent computer user, but I am no technician or programmer... So if you are a novice who is not very familiarized with searching for technical information on the Internet, you might want to steer clear of DUMo..."

If it helps, Kestrel...
Drivers &/or firmware is written for the individual components in your Windows device, and many of the devices attached to it, whether via USB, your network etc. Some exploits target attached hardware such as network capable printers, external drives [&/or NAS], & network routers, so you need to stay on top of those, in some cases perhaps even replacing the device if the vulnerabilities are severe enough & no updates are available.

For those attached devices I suggest Google using the brand & model with terms like update & vulnerability. For a desktop PC with a easily removable panel or cover I actually suggest a physical inspection, writing down info on the chips that are there. You might also find info on the components used on the manufacturer's site, sometimes in their service manuals or specs, or even with the advertising specs for that model. If not there are utilities such as Speccy &/or you can use Windows Device Mgr. to ID the components used.

The reason for the visual inspection, when it's not too much hassle, is that running changes can be introduced during production, e.g. if they run short of a particular chip, & that might not show up in documentation. And, Windows itself does not always know what hardware you have, but bases any component ID on the driver(s) used. The wrong drivers can be installed, & they may work now, but may or may not after an update. I've also seen the apparently correct drivers use a new device ID or name after an update [this was with Intel].

I've found it surprisingly useful over the years to write down the names &/or IDs of the components used in every new device, from PCs to tablets, soon after we got it. So far I've found it even more necessary with Windows 10 -- I've found staying on top of driver updates themselves more necessary with Windows 10. The many ways that Microsoft's continually changing 10, combined with their new development model or method, can mean often driver related problems that, rather than being fixed right away, are added to their development to-do list. [I have a tablet that broke that way with 10 build 1511, that would only work again after many Insider builds over a period of 3 months.]

You can try updating the drivers for components directly in Device Mgr., though I suggest comparing before & after device names after updating component drivers or after a major Windows 10 update -- any device that has its name changed is something you'd want to look at if you have problems afterwards. I make it a point to check for driver updates this way before a win10 build update -- If an out of date driver won't work with the new build, 10 may not run to update that driver afterward. Checking for driver updates in Device Mgr. is easy -- just right click the device.

Otherwise, with the exception of our AMD graphics cards, I've been tending more towards Google when checking for driver updates vs. checking component manufacturer sites. A good part of that is because: *Intel*. Sometimes updates show up via Device Mgr., & sometimes not. Sometimes their automated driver detection & search works, often not. Sometimes you can find drivers browsing their site, but definitely not always. I don't Google on every component, but rather the more major ones [e.g. the network adapter], &/or any that might be giving me problems.

Last, & this pertains mainly to Windows 10, before upgrading or installing 10, & before a build update, copy the C:\Windows\ System32\ DriverStore folder somewhere like a USB stick or external drive. It can only be copied easily while that copy of Windows is running. Win10 can get drivers wrong, or refuse to automatically use an existing driver, or a new driver might not exist. You can update a driver, including forcing a driver update, in Device Mgr. after right clicking a device & selecting properties, & then telling Windows to use drivers in that copy of the old DriverStore folder. It only takes a few moments to copy that folder, & it *may* save you many hours later.

PVRone While I really don't think much of this software, it really bugs me when someone thinks that Win10 is something special. Except for programs requiring deep access to Windows kernel, nearly all Win8/8.1 software is upwardly compatible with Win10. If you need more hand-holding that that, I'd recommend you stay far away from Win10 and consider something like iOS.
