Updating current address
This is a standard type of hardware — you should never need to update this basic mouse driver; it’s included in Windows.Here’s the thing — you don’t actually need to regularly update your drivers.
Once you’re scared, you’ll pay up for their useless service. Like PC-cleaning programs, they try to charge you money for a service you don’t need.They do this by scaring you with threats of blue screens and system problems.For example, you can send an email message or display a message box in addition to running a program.You also have more options for when a task should execute: You can specify a task to execute when a specific event appears in the event log, for example.The reviewer below recommends “trying another one,” but you don’t need any driver-updating utility. We’ve seen other driver updaters behave poorly, too.
We saw one driver utility detect a virtual machine as a Dell PC.
For just a few hundred more dollars, you can have them fixed!
It’s basically just the Windows tech support phone call scam, but they’re only going after people who have already proven they’ll spend money for questionable software.
After installation, Driver Update ran a scan and informed us that our computer had 14 out-of-date drivers, many of which are considered “ancient.” This is on a fresh Windows 8.1 system — installed just a few months ago — with the latest drivers available from the manufacturer’s website at the time.
There’s no possible way we have “ancient” drivers from 2006 installed.
Even if a driver-updating tool worked perfectly and the company behind it didn’t seem unbelievably sleazy, they wouldn’t be worth your time — much less your money. We’ve seen advertisements for a “Driver Update Utility” from all over the place recently.
