It’s named “Driver Support” and uses the same business model, charging a year for driver updates.It’s even more ridiculous — it says our computer’s “Driver Health Is Low! To fix this, we need to update our “HID-compliant mouse” driver.Other users report the company charged them more than after they attempted to buy a subscription, tacking on “add-ons” that raised the price.Other people report crashes and blue-screens after installing updated drivers from this application — not a huge surprise.The reviewer below recommends “trying another one,” but you don’t need any driver-updating utility. We’ve seen other driver updaters behave poorly, too.We saw one driver utility detect a virtual machine as a Dell PC.
Windows also automatically downloads the necessary drivers when you connect new hardware. Like PC-cleaning programs, they try to charge you money for a service you don’t need.They do this by scaring you with threats of blue screens and system problems.If you try to update your drivers, you’re told that the installed drivers “can cause problems, system slowdowns and bluescreen errors.” This is technically true, but very unlikely.It’s also technically true that updated drivers could cause problems, system slowdowns, and blue-screen errors by introducing new bugs. The tool wants you to pay a year to “Fix current device driver problems,” “Benefit from new driver features,” and “Prevent future system problems.” It’s very unlikely any driver will offer new features, and it’s very unlikely your current drivers could cause “future system problems.” Some reviews on allege that if you actually pay , you’ll receive a phone call from customer service informing you that they found problems on your computer during the driver update scan.
