One of the longest lasting Driver Updater software and company, it has accumulated over 27 million in drivers from almost all possible manufacturers. It has some of the main features like backup, restoration scan and update but it lacks the ability to automatically and on a schedule scan your system. Unlike other competitors to whom the scheduling is the main feature--once a day or one a week etc.--, Driver Detective doesn’t have it and as such, you have to manually scan each time.

It has an average to top accuracy in scanning for outdated drivers and on many ran tests it successfully found drivers for Dell, HP, Compaq, Intel and others. Its speed of scanning, downloading and installing is also on the same level. The backup restoration which gives you the feature to rollback a previously installed driver is also at the same level--works correctly and efficiently.

When uploading drivers from the manufacturer’s website and when the software downloads it to your client, Norton PC Checker scans for any viruses, malwares, trojans etc. before installing it.

The customer service is very helpful and dependable on the phone and can answer any and all questions you might have. Their live chat support is also helpful while they are online. Their company’s website features an extremely straightforward and easy to understand support that can help you troubleshoot any problem you might have. But their responses to emails are either not sent or you’ll have to wait for days to receive their reply.

Bottom Line:

Both the website and their database are very resourceful and rich in content which makes Driver Detective the number 1 Driver Updater software based on this. However, you’ll have to deal with not state of the art accuracy, speed and semi-responsive customer service. Not to mention the bugs the company is not fixing about their software for months.
