    "Works very well!"

    September 2, 2013  |   By cadmanager

    Version: Driver Whiz 6.4

    Pros

    It updated all my drivers with the latest drivers available. I am using Windows 7 64-bit as my operating system. Microsoft Update is not this good.

    Cons

    I have been using this product for the past two years. When I updated this product this year, after entering my credit card information, the dialog box on the screen told me to call a 1-800 number. At which point an IT individual (from INDIA I think) answered the phone. He requested to take over my computer. He did this just to copy and paste the registration key in a dialog box. I could have done that without giving anyone access to my computer. This made me very uncomfortable.

    Summary

    I'm concerned, after years of using this product, why they wanted access to my computer. I use another product for internet security and file protection, so I'm hopeful that this intrusion will not cause me any ill effects. But, Driver Whiz does work very well at keeping ALL my computer drivers up to date.

    "DANGER! DANGER!! DANGER!!!"

    September 20, 2010  |   By billyboymack

    Version: Driver Whiz 6.4

    Pros

    There are none!

    Cons

    The only thing this scans is to find out what model your computer is and then advises updates to drivers that don't work or are the incorrect ones!

    Summary

    Stay away from ANY of these update programs, they will cause you more grief than you will ever know. I finally had to do a complete system restore to get my computer to work correctly again.

    "Driver Whiz worked great for me!"

    August 30, 2010  |   By rogofam

    Version: Driver Whiz 6.4

    Pros

    Had to reformat HD. Successfully scanned my computer and helped me download the correct drivers. I could not find a modem driver before using this.

    Cons

    none experienced

    Summary

    It worked flawless for me. Saved me a lot of money! I used it on my Dell Studio laptop. My computer was a mess so I needed to reformat my whole hard drive. The original reinstall disks that came with my laptop where incomplete and did not totally bring my computer up to date. First I used Software Update which updated 91 pieces of software! Unfortunately I had no wifi capability yet. DriverWhiz fixed that along with several other driver updates! Computer works great now.

    "Did not work. Much time wasted with their instructions"

    August 27, 2010  |   By dsstraka

    Version: Driver Whiz 6.4

    Pros

    Truely NONE. I am typing here because I can not exit this page without typing 10 characters or more !

    Cons

    No support. Refund request within a week of purchase. No replies. Bad company and product. No satisfaction. Stay away from this software. Wasted $39. Initial trial baited me with 24 problems identified. Not one successful repair was made.

    Summary

    Read all their forms on how to do the driver updates. Removed and reinstalled drivers that did not work. Can not speak to anyone real time. Within a week and many hours of trial, I requested a full refund to support@drivershq.com given by operaters who answer a 1-800 number. They are not employed by driverwhiz company. Stay away from this worthless junk. Just read much more on this @ http://driver-whiz.pissedconsumer.com
