I found driveragent.com while I was updating my old gigabyte GA-7k600 1394 board and was wondering what you guys think. It gives you all the drivers that you currently have installed and lets you download updated ones from the company website. I looks like it has pretty good reviews.

I am just a little apprehensive when it comes to programs that do a lot for free.

What do you think?

I use it for the scan, but don't pay for the rest of it.
The scan gives some detailed data - but it's a bit misleading since the chipset drivers are all listed individually.
Finally, I don't update drivers unless they're causing problems (If it ain't broke, don't fix it).
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

While I have not used it personally, a lot of my colleagues at DSLReports.com think highly of DriverMax.
Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway.
