Scanner scans system very fast.
A web of signups follow the system scan. Even after the signups the program won't really give you any valuable clues on what drivers to download.
Absolute rubbish program. Endless signups and "deal pages" await if you continue through with trying to download any drivers with this program. Avoid!
It only takes 60 seconds to figure out you're getting nothing from them
Software scans your system, says "click here" to download drivers and BIOS updates, then asks for your email, then directs you to buy the software. Only AFTER entering your email address do you realize you just gave your email address to spammers who now want you to buy from them.
Save time and go to 'spam-me.com' instead.
At least we know its a scam
Everything about it.
Stay far away from this scam.
If there was a pro it's hidden in a void
Absolute Worst Scam Software.
I purchased the BIOS Agent Plus software five months ago in October 2014 with the assured recommendation that the Asus company saying it was a legitimate.
I couldn't have made a worst investment of my time and money. It's odd that I still get occasional emails asking if I wish to extend my subscription service. I've received no support whatsoever after subsequent efforts.
This bogus company collects personal information on customers and their PC's. I've removed the software and registry from my PC. I wish their was an official internet authority that would ban its website.
Dell Acer and the likes will void your warranty if you install this crap, it will brick your computer, and clearly the affiliate links from several free software distributors clearly reveal it is a gimmick.
Want drivers? Go to your manufactures website.
It has catchy logos stolen from companies
Virus ad ware and a refund policy that says if you download the program you get no refund don't be fooled free versions are hacked to demonstrate the uselessness.
It will ruin your computer and make it a worthless piece of junk that will not be usable,
Don't even think about trying it !
I said don't even think about it!
Seriously I teach computer science at M.I.T. Trust me when I say this is junk and a scam like no other.
Identifies out of date drivers - kinda
Everything about the program
I bought the program one drunken night in an attempt to update 4 PCs without having to do all the busy work and installs myself... If you pay for the program you'll find out that the program doesn't do anything... After purchasing the program it scans your PC and lets you know which items are out of date. If you want to update these items you fill out a request form. Then they email you back with a link to just the bios update, something anyone can do on their own. Then you have to also install it on your own... For me, one of the PCs that was out of date and convinced me to buy the program was actually up to date and the other pc wouldn't accept the other bios emailed to me. All in all, its a total waste. If it wasn't for CPUZ I would have never made the purchase...
Everyone knows this software is a scam!
Nothing but a scam! Shame on you CNET! So typical take money from a company and spotlight it no matter the harm it causes your cnet users.
Scam nothing more nothing less.
finds many drivers that could be updated
Empty promise on Bios updates, you only find out there's nothing after you've paid.
4 computers: 1x Dell T3500 with win7 - OS now running on SSD, 1x Sony Vaio Z12 laptop with win7 - OS now running on SSD, 1x Sony vaio vgn-Fe31h laptop with win XP, 1x Lenovo Thinkpad X61 with XP.
The issue: I needed to know if a Bios update might allow the laptops to run stably on SSD. I didn't have time to search everywhere manually, I thought, but I knew one computer at least had a Phoenix Bios. So I searched the net: Happily, I came across the PhoenixBios website, with a link to eSupport with their BiosAgentPlus "free" software. Installed that on all computers, ran on all. Hurrah, said BiosAgentPlus, BIOS updates ARE AVAILABLE for all my computers! As well as various other driver updates, but BIOS update available is right there at the top. I really would not have expected that, as I had recently checked the Sony support site. Anyway, click on the download update link and ... you see it's not free anymore. $29 for BiosAgentPlus download access and a "FileCleaner" programme. Actually at a discount, apparently. Thanks, guys! Still, with 4 computers with BIOS updates, and all other drivers upgraded as a bonus, not too bad anyway! But first, ..proceed to checkout (equiv.) and oops!..an additional $10 is slapped on automatically for some registry cleaner that I didn't want or select, so back to unclick that well-meant option. Then, paid by PayPal. Then reran the BiosAgentPlus and requested updates for Bios for all 4 computers. I will obtain a link for download, the Software says. So, which might work? Which might not? The sobering answer: no BIOS updates were provided. The reply from eSupport: "BIOSAgentPlus located a BIOS update for a similar model of your computer. However, upon further review, our BIOS update team has determined that the BIOS version currently installed on your PC is the most up to date BIOS available." So, a scam? Oh, yes.. BiosAgentPlus also searches for updates to drivers for other computer hardware. On my systems, it suggested: 1) older intel storage drivers than those already installed, 2) an "updated" HD audio driver that killed audio on the Sony VGN-FE31H, and a device driver (for the same laptop) intended for a Dell system (needless to say, it didn't work).
My verdict: Save your money, keep your drivers up-to-date through the manufacturer's support sites, or download each driver from wherever at your peril. Either way, there is zero advantage to BiosAgentPlus. Stay away from eSupport.
