DriverMax
Check for the latest drivers for your hardware using DriverMax

All hardware requires the installation of drivers in order to function correctly, and these drivers are constantly updated to fix problems, add new features and enhance performance. While Windows Update can be used to check to see if there are any driver updates available, it can often take a while for new releases to be published to the site.

DriverMax can automatically check online for you to see if there are any new drivers available for the hardware you have installed. This helps to eliminate the need to manually check the web sites of hardware manufacturers and download drivers in this way. DriverMax can also backup all or some of the drivers you currently have installed. These are stored in a compressed zip file, so should you ever have to reinstall Windows, you will already have all of the necessary drivers to hand.

Drivers have long been the bane of Windows users' lives, but DriverMax goes a long way to making them as painless as possible.

Verdict:

DriverMax is a good supplement to Windows Update, but still not as effective as manual checks.

cant get it to install windows 8 64bit windows 8 saying it has compatibility issues

absolute crap

I tried this as free trial offer. It seemed to work but took ages to download drivers & always went back to 14 updates required even after downloading 5 drivers so is impossible, unless you list them, to easily find which are downloaded & which are not.
So I decided to uninstall the program............this is where the real problems start, uninstall goes OK except all it uninstalls is the program leaving many stray files n the PC, icon in toolbar (which is impossible to delete) & popups etc that appear when you watch a film or sports, similar to those you get on Youtube but 10 times as large!
After searching the web I found many suggestions to help.
One suggested going to I/Explorer cookies, I found what I thought was the problem, it deleted it (from the toolbar) but next day it was back, also the window still appears when viewing TV. This means they have access to your PC even after UNINSTALL.
I ALSO WENT TO THE their official WEBSITE where you find they give you anotherproduct name to delete, not DriverMax.
I also tried restoring my PC to 2 different restore points before I installed DriverMax, it made no difference. I guess the only way to get rid of them is re-install windows.......maybe!

Its Freeware, quit complaining

I too hate ad-ware bundled into a download but with freeware its to be expected and it is a fairly simple and standard opt out procedure. If you don't care for it after the install, simply uninstall. Iobits has a good uninstall software and it is free. It's hard to complain when someone is giving you something.

Yes it has custom installation and they are 3 that you can pick. 1: Set,keep and protect AVG Secure Search as my homepage 2: Set,keep and protect AVG Secure Search as my default search provider. 3) Install AVG Security Toolbar. Under that it states "By clicking "NEXT" you agree to the AVG End User License Agreement and Privacy Policy". Like I said there is no OPT-OUT and I don't want ANY AVG crap on my computer! Check it out yourselves by installing DriverMax and you will see.

Sorry, sadly you are incorrect. We've just tested it.

If you pick custom mode, you simply keep 1/2/3 checked OFF and nothing extra is installed. After we kept these checked off, nothing was installed in either Internet Explorer or Chrome. No toolbar, search engine remained our choice and no AVG Secure Search.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
