Is this safe/trustable/reliable to use?
I'd rather have software that tells me there's a new driver and gives a link to the official fabricant website to download it from the official site. I don't know where the drivers are from and if that's trustable.
The software seems to do a good job tho :-)

I ran the application in a sandbox and I did not observe any suspicious behavior. That said, VirusTotal indicates that "Trojan.JS.Redirector.PU" was active at the download URL.

This could very easily be a false positive, but be watchful nonetheless.
