Driver Max seems like a great program but I have some concerns. It tells me my NVIDIA drivers and Intel drivers are out of date. When I check their websights I'm told my drivers are current. I would think the manufacture would know best. Also, the driver numbers listed in Driver Max can't be found on the manufacture websights. I would like to purchase the Pro version if I had confidence in it. Can anyone ease my concerns?

I'm not one of the experts around here but I've seen this kind of product brought up in the past and the guys around here who are experts don't think something like Driver Max is necessary. So I'm not going to use it.

Drivers shouldn't be updated in bunches.
In most cases, you need to update a driver, only, if you're experiencing some particular problem.
If driver is really need, it can be easily obtained from the computer, or device manufacturer site.

Thanks for the info. Now I wonder if I should roll back the drivers I did update since the ones from Driver Max don't seem to be from the manufactures.

If everything works fine, let it be and don't play with Driver Max anymore.

Thanks, I did have trouble with an Audio driver. I rolled that one back and everything is OK.
