"Scamming scum: How To Remove Driver Toolkit"

January 24, 2016  |  By Cygre

2016-01-24 19:50:51  |  By Cygre

 |  Version: DriverToolkit 8.3.5

Pros

- Apparently lists all the drivers that are out-of-date, including ones I don't even have! WOW!

Cons

- Refusal to leave my computer alone even after uninstalling, and even THAT wasn't a straighforward process.
- Misleading information regarding its product-The SOFTWARE is free, but their SERVICES are not.

Summary

Upon launching, you can start a scan for drivers that might need updating. Whatever you have or don't have in your computer, it will detect as out of date (nevermind that I JUST updated one of the drivers myself mere minutes ago). It offers you a convenient button to update all the drivers. They fail to mention, however, before alarming you with how out of date your drivers are, that their actual service is not free.

Realizing that I would never pay anybody for such a thing, and realizing that updating each driver myself isn't such a chore after all, I wanted to uninstall Driver Toolkit. When I went to Programs & Features to uninstall this thing (y'know, like how EVERY OTHER SOFTWARE IS UNINSTALLED), Driver Toolkit was NOT in the list. Fine. I went to its folder under Program Files and found an uninstall executable. Ran it and completed without problem apparently. I restarted my computer to make sure.

Lo and behold-The Driver Toolkit taskbar icon is still there. I couldn't use CCleaner to uninstall it, as it doesn't even appear in the list either. I booted my computer in Safe Mode and removed the Driver Toolkit folder manually. NOW it's gone.

Though Driver Toolkit hasn't caused harm to my computer, needing to go through such a round-about process leaves it a bitter taste in my mouth.

 |  Version: DriverToolkit 8.3.5

Pros

Shows you what you need to download

Cons

Tries to charge you for the free downloads

Summary

This prOgRam REally tries to have you pay for something that's free. Next Time, use windows or find a different program to have all your drivers in one place.

"It worked!"

May 07, 2015  |  By m1j1c1

 |  Version: DriverToolkit 8.3.5

Pros

It seems to work. The interface is clear. The drivers can be downloaded without additional software

Cons

It isn't completely accurate. Some drivers are already up-to-date and some don't need upgrading. It doesn't have drivers for all the possible bits of tech you may have especially if you build your own computer (in some ways it is really useful program even then - just to get things working smoothly).

Summary

Having read some of the bad reviews I was so desperate to get my printer to work I took a chance. It worked. The program identified my printer as a problem and whilst the driver was up to date the reinstallation worked. I hadn't been able to re-install the driver because it was part of a bundle of software which didn't work. This gave me the driver itself. I would say that some of it is not very accurate but it worked when it was needed. I had paid for the 3 license version and installed it on my desktop to see if it would fix the speaker system (my audio drivers just wouldn't work no matter what. It now works! Brilliant. However, it does not fix all problems - my touch screen monitor on my desktop still doesn't have a driver for Windows 10 preview.

"Not very accurate"

 |  Version: DriverToolkit 8.3.5

Pros

Very fast, nice clear interface.

Cons

It reported that I had 4 missing or corrupt drivers so I manually checked each driver in Windows device manager, not only were the drivers correctly installed, but they weren't corrupt and I had the latest version. It looked like it was reporting non-existent errors/issues.

Summary

Good interface but I question it's accuracy.

"I loved it - Fast and effective"

 |  Version: DriverToolkit 8.3.5

Pros

Drivers downloading and installing is very simple as it does all of the work for you. Very helpful, particularly for old PCs, which are not easy to find the drivers.

Cons

For some reason, the program also downloads drivers for absent devices.

Pros

I have a 7 years old HP laptop which I changed the OS from Vista x32 to 7x64 so I was having trouble getting drivers. I installed DriverToolkit and that took care of all the driver problems after one scan. I am truly amazed.

Cons

None that I have found.

Summary

I recommend this software to my friends. It has solved their issues as well.

"Downloading this was a terrible mistake."

February 18, 2015

2015-02-18 14:59:05

 |  Version: DriverToolkit 8.3.5

Pros

Pros: Tells you just how badly your driver situation is.

Cons

Does not allow you to download single drivers. Instead, it just asks for you to buy a registered copy without letting you do anything else. (Note: I'm not a cheapskate. I'm not mad about price. I'm mad because this stupid program won't let me do anything other than look at an ad for their registered version. Here's a hint for whatever greedy idiot designed this: At least let people try the thing out. I'm not paying money for something I could only look at, not sorry.)

Summary

I'm not pleased at all. Uninstalled this piece of crap. If it turns out that I'm essentially screwed by malware-like antics I'm going to freak out.
