is this program trustworthy? Update Your Windows XP Drivers
Thanks in advance.
Looks questionable to me.
By questionable, you mean that you aren't sure if you should use it? I have the same felling, but I'm just asking to make sure.
There is absolutely no reason you would need a third party program to manage your OS drivers. If you're having an issue with a specific driver/device, just download the driver from the manufacturer manually.
Also, if a device is working normally, there is no reason to update the driver, except in the case of video drivers where it might improve performance.
Looking closer at the site, and doing some investigating, I would say most definetly do not install this program. It's hiding download links to it's software in alleged tech site "award" images, for example cnet, but looking at the cnet review of the software, there is no mention of such an award. I don't think it's harmful per se, just another unnecessary program designed to squeeze bucks out of suckers.
Oh okay, thanks.
Yeah, you can update drivers through Windows without needing another piece of software.
never use third party programs for your drivers!
I would never recommend using a third party program for downloading drivers.
1 - Speccy.
2 - Google the company name for each part.
3 - Get the driver for that model off their site.
Totally free, and you're going to get more up to date ones than windows update provides (windows update can be rather slow and not all drivers are submitted to it because it costs money).
lol I got this program its pretty awesome!
