    "hit and miss"

    May 29, 2010  |   By stu54


    small, light,quick,easy to use and good with older pc's.


    gets a lot wrong and doesn't find much if running windows 7


    This program seems to work well on older machines and can find the odd driver that you can't find on the web.
    It does get a lot wrong though and it crashed my nvidia graphics card.
    Its interface is simple but it always flags up older versions of drivers so it can be confusing sometimes.
    Scan times are quick and its a small program that installs and removes itself with no problems.
    Doesn't do much for windows 7 that MS already does and is better suited if running XP.
    That said its free and worth a go if you know what you are looking for..

    Try Slim Drivers. It's free and works great on XP, Vista & 7. I have a Dell laptop; had some errors in "system devices", it cleared it right the 1st time. Also updated system and hardware drivers no problem, for FREE! Highly recommended. It updated my nvidia graphics card without issues.
