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

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
