(this post was a reply to the driverrobot SPAM which has now thankfully been deleted)



I've been checking it out a bit more, and a lot of people have been duped into installing and paying for driverrobot because they think it's being suggested by there hardware manufacturer eg. http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=106948 . This is basically 'PHISHING' and driverrobot do it for all the hardware manufacturers.

Also trying to find propper unbiased information about the product is difficult for people, as nearly every google search about it whether you put... driverrobot review or driverrobot scam or driverrobot whatever.....produces 8 of 10 results with pages basically containing a similar 'ADVERTISEMENT' to the original post above and linking directly to the driverrobot home page.

This is called 'SEARCH POISONING'. Do you remember 'Regcure' doing the same thing about 3-4 years ago? And then messing up loads of peoples computers.

I think that this is DESPICABLE BEHAVIOR! It's is definately DEFINATELY A SCAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Maybe Driverrobot and Regcure should get married as they have so much in common :thumbsup:

FWIW, I've used Device Doctor several times and have found it to be adequate and safe.

you know guys,
That's not too far from my issue last year. I was one of the unlucky ones to accidncally manually download regcure to my desktop since it kept tanking all of the time and I just wanted it fixed, and obviously that wasn't the way to do it! LOL. I've never heard of Driverrobot. But I wouldn't be surprised if it is made by a microsoft partner. Pareto logic, the makers of Regcure certainly are! Messed up, isn't it?
