Thumbs up Re: driverguide.com new & improved?

Having a degree in computer science, I have been building and repairing computers for people since 1982. It is very challenging trying to stay up to date with all the different devices and their respective drivers.
This site is a great site to find all the drivers and information that is needed to keep any system running flawlessly....Nicely Done!!

Why not state what your problem(s) are instead of fuming at the mouth? If you don't say, we can't help.

Excuse me for resurrecting an old thread, but I feel that I am forced to download some software created by DriverGuide to download anything from this website - This is news to me since I've had used this site for many years, just not on a frequent basis. But, still, back then I didn't have to download software to download drivers. I really didn't mind logging in, but this is going over board. It's bad enough Amazon does it for their mp3 album downloads.

Not only that, nothing is stated in your site usage guides or your F.A.Q. about this. Instead, the user is to assume that it's necessary to download this unnecessary software.

On a more personal, opinionated note, I think anyone coming to this website will not be a computer illiterate. We all know what we're doing and we don't need the assistance from a website to help us utilize our personal computers, let alone the internet.


Please remove the requirement to download your software to download drivers.


Thanks.

I agree with all of the above. I am in the very same situation. I have used this site sporadically for the past several years and it has been pretty good. Now, however, I am only presented with a mysterious setup file that is flagged as a trojan by AVG. I am sure it is a false positive, but why can we not just get the driver file as specified by the 'File Name:' section of the description? Why this setup file? We do not need some brain-dead software to 'help' us get our drivers; we know what we are doing.

All you have to do is "uncheck" / "untick" the line (under the download button) that says "Use Driverguide.com's Installer".
