Why buy Driver Alert

Recommended Posts

I am considering buying Driver Alert but...

 

The OverDrive test shows a new driver being available for my video card.

The card is no longer supported by the mfg and Nvidia shows that I have the latest driver.

So where did this driver come from?

I am already using Driver Agent and have been very disappointed in the trash that it presents.

Why would your product be any better?

Please post an OverDrive link so that we can see what is taking place on your computer. You will need to register an account, login, and run the full tests from the link below, then copy and paste the URL from the results page into your reply:

PC Pitstop Driver Alert does not scan for hardware, it scans for drivers. If there is an installed hardware item without a driver, Driver Alert will not make a recommendation.

 

Also, several competing products will list each device in the motherboard or chipset driver as a separate device, such as a USB, IDE, PCI, etc, driver which makes it look like many drivers, when in fact it is only one. Comparing the driver results from some products looks identical to expanding the Windows Device Manager.

 

Driver Alert will scan the existing drivers on the computer, compare them to the drivers in our database, and provide a download link if a newer driver is appropriate. A monthly email is also sent with a notification of newer drivers that are available for that computer.

After investigating the issue it was discovered that the 175.40 driver, although a matched driver for your hardware's PCI VEN ID, was not available to all users, so it has been removed from PC Pitstop's recommendations.

 

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
