I just reinstalled windows on my pc and am missing drivers for certain things, and while searching for the driver for my sound card some site made me download Driver Detective. It looks really good, and I assume I will be able to use just that one programme to download and install all the drivers I need, instead of me searching for every one.
The bad thing issss you gotta pay for it which I don't wanna do cos I'm cheap

So like the title says, any freeware programmes like the Driver Detective?

Have you tried looking for a cracked version?

Yeess first thing I did lol but it doesn't look like there's one working, I've tried 3 different torrents.


EDIT:Actually never mind, I just read a review of it and it says that Driver Detective only detects what drivers are out of date etc.
Since it scans your pc for free I'll just look for the drivers that I need.

Does http://www.driverfiles.net/ actually host any files? And if so does anyone know how to download from it? I cannot find a download button anywhere >_>

No it doesn't, I was digging around for scanner drivers for a friend yesterday and it just seems to advertise that dumb program. Pain in the arse when it keeps coming top in search engines. Stick with the manufacturer's sites.
