    "Complete rip-off. DO NOT BUY. Company is dishonest."

    November 24, 2009  |   By flanjerka


    Worked OK for a few weeks, then just stopped. When it DID work, it had a very pretty UI and was able to find updated drivers for my hardware.


    Stopped working after a few weeks. Customer service is TERRIBLE. They did not help me at all and are now ignoring my emails. When you pay $40 for software, you expect support to come along with it.


    When I try to start DD, I get the message "DD has encountered an error and needs to close..." I tried uninstalling and re-installing several times, that doesn't fix the problem. Customer Service is ignoring my emails. This company is a SCAM company and takes your money and doesn't care about your problems with the program. Do a google search for "Driver Detective complaints" or "driver detective scam."
    There are many many results. Look at all the FIVE STAR reviews on this product here at cnet... they're all written EXACTLY the same! Someone from Driver Detective is using this site to post FAKE positive reviews of their own product!!! What kind of company does that? Answer: a dishonest and deceitful one. Don't waste your money on Driver Detective. You will be sorry.
