Just another fake driver site full of computer herpes. Malwarebytes was all over that. These idiots haven't changed in 30 years, couldn't find drivers back then b/c of all the malware crap and I still can't find a legit driver site. Manufacturers only offer support for a few years after that your left to these jack-asses. Pretty stupid, you'd think if just one driver site was legit they'd make a killing selling off old drivers b/c they'd be the only ones that weren't spreading the herpes. 6 sites in a row so far, if you're going to look for a driver more than a few years old make sure you're in a virtual environment or a sandbox. They're the new age condoms.
say download VIA drivers for new setup Windows 7 But no drivers
only a 'Driver Tool.exe no good for a new setup can not use
This is one of many sites that will pop up during a search for a driver. I used this site not too long ago to update a bunch of drivers it said were missing or out of date. I had to run recovery console to undo what it did.
This time I was looking for a printer driver. When I tried to download the driver, it wanted to download DriverTool.exe, which scans your drive and looks for every driver you have. Do yourself a favor..if you need a driver, go to the source to get it.
The site claims to allow you to download device drivers when you are really only downloading a tool that they have developed to get you to waste money.
After my system was scanned it reported many drivers as being outdated when they were not. To correct the false reports you have to register which involves paying for their software.
I agree with mothbulb "I think a company should be up front about the charge prior to downloading their software that searches your computer."
I will find out who owns this product and file a complaint with the government agencies that deal with consumer fraud. Unfortunately, there are many of these websites that prey on consumers who don't have a high level of knowledge about computers which is quite normal.
Please be a part of the solution all you need to do is Google who owns the site then Google how to file a consumer fraud complaint. The sites will walk you through the process.
A good place to start.is the Better Business Bureau - http://www.bbb.org/us/.
No drivers; just links through to a 'driver updater' program which costs you to continue. HOW is this site still rated 'good' when almost all reviews are bad?
Malware site. Offers drivers that do not exist, and gives the downloads "DriverTool.exe" (spyware, adware, malware) instead of legitimate files. Avoid.
Appears to emulate a free HP driver download site, then wants money after you give them too much information. Skip this one. Why does it have a "green" rating?
Why is this sites rating green? It should be red or yellow.
They only give you a "driver updater" that doesn't work, NOT the actual drivers.
Linked to suspicious search engine redirections and "driver updates"
