It still needs improvement for drivers and identification of them.

As for Floodland it is obvious I have Intel Chipsets but the obvious point is it is directing me to Intel m/b's that I do not own and the drivers that go with them.
If I were to install their suggestions system would not work do to "wrong drivers being recommended" .
Program must be taken with a grain of salt and do your research before installing and this also includes the program from DriverMax as it comes up with tons of drivers and if you install the wrong one poof.
It is best to identify your m/b and go to the maker ie Asus and download from there.
Intelchip set inf file is most of the time updates what you have but that can be found at the intel web site as can the maker of your vid card.
Go to the proper source first before you use any of these programs recommendations
Also Win7 has proper update files for most things ie network card, monitor though recommend going to the maker of the monitor for drivers.
This/these are a lazy persons way of toasting your system and I stand by this comment as I rant and rave about what a a** that. Floodland is and learn to read.

Sent me to a web site to download another program called Driver Robot. http://driver-pro.com For most of my hardware. Only real web site it sent me to was Nvidia.com.

Works as suggested but tends to re-direct to those "all in one" driver update tools, which do "kill" working Windows set up, in my opinion. Would be a useful tool otherwise!

Good software, it detects and provide links to download latest drivers. Drivers linked for the computers I tested were recognized correctly.

Pkshadow, I bet the abit board you own has an intel chipset, abit does not build their own chipsets. Before write a review you should check your information before ranting for no reason...

Again this program does identify what is installed but it wants me to install a Intel Motherboard driver for a Abit motherboard. That is a wrong thing to do and only asking for trouble,
It identifies a driver hotfix from MS 2007 for dual core. It is not needed in Win7.'
It does identify and find my ATI vid card drivers but also wants me to install a MS Hotfix for dual cards when I do not have dual cards.
This program again rates a "0" if could as it would ruin a install in no time at all if followed their suggestions.
Worse than Bad

Poor work though is light weight.
Driver pages come up with no information and what it does I would not trust.
For my ethernet card it wanted me to download the program again.
For my MB it wanted me to stick a unknown intel MB driver in.
No trust in this program, no information about the drivers gets it a zero (0) if could.

I like it because there are no dependencies whatsoever and it displays the most pertinent info about a system at a glance in one window. Driver downloads? I can hardly fault this for not giving me 'better' drivers, or any at all for that matter. 441Kb is also easy to stash

Looks like alpha freeware from the late nineties downloaded from Tucows. Havn't tried this and have no intention of even downloading this. I've seen better alternatives on Betanews.com to make my judgement.

The idea of this program is great, but I thought that updates in the microsoftdownloadcenter doiing the same thing, so what is the beniffet. The thumbnail makes a little hylarisch to even take seriously...so, is it working, i do not think it is some kind of joke..If it looks more like a descent program it could become a big hit, but i do not think the programmer has even realised that, still waiting for some usefull reviewing on this app, thankyou

I know what a beta is, but after launching the program, no hardware detection was made.

If manually clicked on Update, then a Windows Explorer to the desktop is opened, clicking on driver, would open the same Windows Explorer, and selecting Q&A would crash the application.

Is this a real program? Looks like it's just a photo and it crashed. Not worth being listed on this site!!
