Hi,

Does anyone know if "DriverMax" is OK to use.

It seems like a good service but after I've used it to upgrade my drivers I then went back and checked it against the driver update service in "Device Manager" only to have "Device Manager" put older versions back on my PC.

So, my question is does "Device Manager" know better what is good for my PC then "DriverMax" or does it not really make a difference?

Can I use the more current versions without any problems?

Just want to make sure. Thanks.
