    January 31, 2013  |   By TaoPoBaAkoInay

    Version: SlimDrivers Help 2.2.25937.63861

    Pros

    i'm having a hard time to find all of my drivers, then i try it and it does the work for me. one good thing about this software is it gave me a warning that one of my current driver is newer than this program downloaded for me so i just cancelled the installation of that one. no problem at first try, so for me it was excellent software..pardon me for my bad english ^^

    Cons

    maybe the pop up saying "rate us"

    "Fixed 100% CPU usage -- twice"

    January 29, 2013  |   By tmnall

    Version: SlimDrivers Help 2.2.25937.63861

    Pros

    I searched the Internet for fixes to a 5-year-old computer churning at constant 100% CPU usage. Every website said "You have a virus". I downloaded several anti-virus packages & tried them one by one; nothing helped. Then I used SlimDriver to update several drivers. Problem solved. But wait, there's more: same thing happened at work a couple months later. SD fixed it again.

    Cons

    Not sure if there are any.

    "Helped get some hard to find updates"

    January 29, 2013  |   By MasterChief81

    Version: SlimDrivers Help 2.2.25937.63861

    Pros

    Found some updates to drivers I couldn't seem to get or find. Even with Windows update driver I still missed some.

    Cons

    The free version only lets me download on at a time, but hey its free.

    Summary

    Great program so far. I use it on every computer I own. Nothing easier than clicking scan and finding out which of your drivers might be causing that BSOD.

    "Excellent!"

    January 29, 2013  |   By rhgKualaLumpur

    Version: SlimDrivers Help 2.2.25937.63861

    Pros

    It does what it says quickly and without a fuss. And with very little "in your face" advertising!

    Cons

    None that I have found in the last several months.

    Summary

    Very good. The only improvement I can think of is to maybe have a brief summary as to what each driver actually does for the benefit of non-IT engineers! And/or if the software had its own rating system where the software ranked how important each flagged update was. But it's an excellent utility - and for free, it's fantastic!!

    "Great overall!"

    January 29, 2013  |   By icanswim70

    Version: SlimDrivers Help 2.2.25937.63861

    Pros

    This is a great free alternative to paying for a program to download updates for you. SlimDrivers will download drivers for you, and immediately notify you if there are any problems. Computer scan is quick and easy! Furthermore, its large icons and easy to understand labels make this task easy for computer users of all levels! Definitely worth the download!

    Cons

    While there arent very many negatives, there is always that 1 thing that bugs someone. With this program, there are 2. First off, it is pretty slow. When there are big updates, it can take as long as 2 hours to download that singlke driver. Smaller ones are faster. But also, it doesnt show all drivers that need to be updated. As when i ran ASO it found all out of date drivers that also needed updating.

    Summary

    AWESOME, Worth the download 100%
