virustotal.com scan detects one virus as this report

Virus Total report is not just about virus but also about malwares and such. In this case, it isn't saying that it contains a virus but a riskware

Yeah. You sound right. It's more riskware.

Great Idea But Often Suggests Wrong Drivers

Comment by bopperjr346
about SlimDrivers · Mar 2014 ·

I think that this program's crowdsourced data should mean that it will eventually outperform all other options. However, at the moment, the program often recommends wrong drivers when I use it.

Not only wrong drivers. Sometimes driver titles are okay, but when you decide to install, it installs completely different driver!

Works like a charm

For me was the only that realy works, lists only the drivers that need update. Don't list unecessary updates or wrong drivers (I've tested on 3 diferent computers).

BEWARE this software may harm your computer.

BEWARE this software may harm your computer. For some reason, it doesn't install the right drivers, I needed to reinstall Windows on one machine, and in the other machine I tested it, it installed drivers for hardware not even present.
Installing it it's risky.
