What the manufacturer and model of your computer?

If it looks like I know what I'm doing, there's a pretty good chance the only reason for that is because
I once asked someone to run chkdsk /r and a BC Advisor smacked me in the back of the head.

IMO Steer clear of driver update programs.

If you want the latest drivers either try Cyberpowerpc. If it is a custom build then go to motherboard makers website for motherboard drivers and the video card makers website for video drivers.

Agreed with rotor.

Several manufacturer's, such as Lenovo, supply an adequate system utility that keeps up with driver updates from the manufacturer. Custom systems shouldn't use updaters. The third-party ones simply aren't worth it.
