Crapware! Avoid

It installs itself, but doesn't provide an uninstaller, it tries to add crapware. Avoid at all costs

Two versions

Positive Comment by Tanath
about DriverPack Solution Jul 2014

Check the Softpedia page:
http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Miscellaneous/DriverPack-Solution-Professional.shtml

The full version is free and open source and checked to be clean. It does offer to install common apps you may or may not want. The lite version is ad-supported and may be why WOT ratings are bad (see in-depth Softpedia review). WOT is unreliable, this shouldn't be flagged as dangerous.

As of August 2013, this software is being flagged as bad by WOT.com. However, this software is open source. If you have any doubts of getting it from drp.su, download it from code.google.com and look at the source yourself before running it. It's developed by Russians, but the neat thing about logic is it works the same no matter where you are. From glancing around at the source, I don't see anything bad with it.

It queries the hardware and compares that with other open source implementations like http://pciids.sourceforge.net/

That's clearly shown at https://code.google.com/p/driverpacksolution/source/browse/stable/dev_db/Audio_x86_906.1.txt

It's essentially a lspci/lsusb (VBS, VisualBASIC Script) + modprobe (drivers) for Windows.

DRPSu11: Download of 2.85 GB driver-files to C:\Users\

Negative Comment by em4020
about DriverPack Solution and Driver Easy, DriverMax, Device Doctor Jul 2012

Big disadvantage of version 11 (not version 10):

  • Download of 2.85 GB driver-files to C:\Users\UserName\Documents\DRPSu11-Final (not selectable).
    A portable app should not install or download so many files in a C-folder, which you cannot select. Because of this I uninstalled all DRPSu-files, removed my like for DRPSu and the tag "portable" for versions 11 and later.
  • I prefer driver update solutions, which download only the drivers from internet, which are needed on my computer, e.g. DriverMax (1), Driver Easy (2) or Device Doctor (3)
