"Difference between Trial & Purchased"

February 02, 2014  |  By ppatster

 |  Version: WinZip Driver Updater 1.0.648.15141

Pros

Ease of use

Cons

I purchased the software with the optional extra update (part of Winzip Utilities Suite) as the trial highlighted a problem I was trying to resolve with a coprocessor driver which appeared after installing Win8 x64, plus 11 other out-of-date drivers.
After buying, installing, and activating the software, running a scan, no out-of-date drivers were found!
After re-running the 'trial', all 12 out-of-drivers were again reported.
Somehow I feel conned, and will request a refund under the 30 day refund scheme as there are clearly two different camps when it comes to updating drivers.

Summary

A potentially misleading product that did not backup, or correct the 'trial' findings.

"What the hell?"

November 16, 2013  |  By mootrix

 |  Version: WinZip Driver Updater 1.0.648.15141

Pros

What pros? Nothing nada, not one.

Cons

Another piece of Junk

Summary

Ever have that felling you're being ripped off?
Its not a nice feeling is it? Well you will get this feeling if you decide to use this program. Why? Well think about what drivers are. They are basically pieces of software that allow your computer to communicate with a particular hardware device. Usually when you have to install a new printer, scanner or similar devices you also need to install divers. They come free with your device. And if newer versions are available they are also free, you just need to go to their respective websites and see if there are new drivers available. You first probably need to find out what version of drivers you have, just use Google to do that, then check the versions of the drivers for all the hardware you have, which will probably be 4 or more devices, (one for graphics, sound, network card etc..) you then have to check the individual sites.

One thing you should understand is that drivers don't get updated often, except for graphics drivers. Even then if your computer is working fine you probably don't need new drivers. If your computer has certain problems that could be linked to hardware issues then updating your drivers could help.

There are many free ways to update every driver on your computer for free (use Google!)without having to resort to this, this thing.

You don't really need to update drivers often. For graphics drivers, they may have an automatic way to update, or you can just go to their website, type in the particular number and see if there are any recent additions.

"Winzip Driver Updater only allows 3 installs"

October 11, 2013  |  By shirleypipitone1

 |  Version: WinZip Driver Updater 1.0.648.15141

Pros

There are no pros. I only got to use it once so I really don't know whether it's any good.

Cons

Tough luck if you have to reinstall Winzip Driver Updater because of a computer problem. You only get 3 chances. Then you can wait 6 years for another go if you are patient.

Summary

I will never buy a Winzip product ever again.
