    Curious to know if any Wilders members have used DriverDoc by Solvusoft?
    They claim to have "over 16,000,000 drivers inside DriverDoc".

    When I clicked on a link to begin a driver scan, ESET complained...

    I just installed it and it's one of the many rebrands of Systweak's Advanced Driver Updater. Although, from the screenshot they show on the website, in the past it was rebrand of Driver Detective.

    Advanced Driver Updater is one of the better driver update tools, with it or DriverDoc, you will not be able to update any driver until you purchase it. I have used it on and off for 7 years since it was first released as PC Updater.

    I recommend Driver Booster, as the free version works nearly as well at the paid version, and will update any drivers it finds.

    I just used Drive Booster free edition and can report it worked well, updating 81 drivers on an old Lenovo T400 running windows 7.

    After several days of use, the annoying "cursor skips over page" problem has disappeared. VERY thankful. Thanks Roger

    driver booster free does not scan all drivers incl. the rare or unknown ones unless you buy the paid version. I have tested both and seen the paid version detects more then the free version.

    Driver Booster Pro is regularly available as a giveaway. Just do a Google search for Driver Booster giveaway. The free version will tell you if the paid version will update more drivers. On some systems, the pro version will not update any more drivers then the free version.

    I spoke too soon... It's much better, but still does skip around a bit. Seems worse when the computer is running at 50% or more, which in my case is often. I used the free Drive Booster. Debating to get the paid, or... use it towards another computer.
