    "Waste of Time & Money"

    July 20, 2013  |   By rcl_prr

    Version: DriverScanner 2014 4.0.11

    Pros

    At least you trying it proves that all the "tech experts" who recommend this POS are ******.

    Cons

    Doesn't work on the most important drivers in the list. Has no ability to discern if the latest update is incompatible with your hardware. For example, it was totally incapable of installing the latest Nvidia driver. It said it was available, it downloaded and installed it "successfully". After restart Windows wanted the path to the "disc" to confirm. The driver was nowhere on my harddrive. I'll skip all the details but several tries produced several different results and Driver Scanner reported all as "successful" while all failed upon restart with or without the Windows dialog.

    Contacting Uniblue "Support" is totally useless. I entered two ticket and have NEVER HAD ANY RESPONSE IN A WEEK. All attempts at "Live Chat" are pointless. The chat web pages are totally dysfunctional.

    Summary

    This is a tool to destroy the computers of the poor schleps who believe the lies told to get you to buy it.

    "Would rate minus stars if possible"

    July 1, 2013  |   By mcsmama

    Version: DriverScanner 2014 4.0.11

    Pros

    NONE AT ALL

    Cons

    Solved no issues & caused tremendous damage that I have been unable to repair.

    Summary

    Since I installed then uninstalled this program my computer will not run properly; computer repeatedly locks up programs that previously ran smoothly. I have attempted to do a system restore several times since but am unable to repair the damage & instead I end up losing other programs updates including programs for which I do not have back ups. This has cost me MANY hours & tremendous frustration & will now likely cost me a great deal of money to hire someone to attempt to repair the damage done.

    "DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!!!"

    April 3, 2013  |   By renardg

    Version: DriverScanner 2014 4.0.9.10

    Pros

    It's quite cheap, it works and it's not a virus. I'll give it that much.

    Cons

    My Inspiron N4050 was using Dell drivers for Windows 8 64 released in December 2012 to January 2013, old yes but they were all great. I didn't encounter any problems with them. But Dell is rarely release new drivers and even if they do, it's always a pain to manually download and update them. So I decided to spent some money on this and give it a try. Turns out, it was a bad investment.

    I got the notification that most of my drivers are "ancient" and need to be updated. Some of them are Intel HM61 Chipset, Realtek Ethernet, and Bluetooth Adapter. So I clicked "Update All". Now, my Intel RST stop working and give me error message every time I try to turn it on, make my Inspiron slower than before. My bluetooth mouse became laggy, make it almost impossible to use in games. And my internet connection drop frequently.

    Summary

    I thought it was my provider's fault that my internet connection drops all the time. Then I reinstalled the "ancient" Dell version of Realtek Ethernet and my connection returned to normal. So I did it too for the Chipset and Bluetooth Adapter. They too, returned to the state they were before I use this useless program.

    Version: DriverScanner 2014 2013

    Pros

    None at all

    Cons

    Summary

    Bought the software. Scan and shows 12 out-of-date drivers. So I update the drivers, restart and Audio + USB Hub STOPPED WORKING (included USB Mouse, USB Keyboard and USB Printer).

    "No idea if it works"

    December 5, 2012  |   By Fanlarm67

    Version: DriverScanner 2014 2013

    Pros

    Pretty! Nothing else.

    Cons

    Showed 9 drivers on one scan and 7 on next. Downloaded 7 but refused to install any of them Got following each time: "The driver was not installed correctly so the driver update failed." H-m-m-m Must be Bush's fault! Blames someone else.

    Summary

    I find it to be a colossal waste of time and money. Just do your own updates.

    "Suspiciuos"

    August 28, 2012  |   By Johnbcnone

    Version: DriverScanner 2014 2013

    Pros

    It seems the cons outweigh any pros

    Cons

    A bit of an overkill.Keeps reminding you to update as you work.

    Summary

    I recently installed 3 new drivers following a Uniblue scan. Everytime I do an Anti Virus Scan these new drivers are identified in some way as suspicious and I have to confirm my acceptance of them.
    I am not installing any more new drivers as this problem will only get worse. My original drivers were never identified as a problem with my Anti Virus software
