A few of us are aware that Small Snappy Driver Installer iconSnappy Driver Installer is now in the hands of less than honest devs.

I wish I could say that I didn't see this coming.

Small Snappy Driver Installer Origin iconSnappy Driver Installer Origin is clean, I've used it several times before sharing here.

Drivers are a PITA, and SDI has been a godsend for me personally. Let's support the new dev and project as best we can.

I've been testing driver update programs since 2015 - IOBit, Snappy, SlimDrivers, DriverMax, Unknown Device Identifier, etc. None of them - not even Snappy Driver Installer - are perfect. Always be wary of driver installation programs. For 99% success, just download the driver from the manufacturer's website, such as for your motherboard.

On the bright side, Snappy makes it very easy to visualize all hardware data and compare it to the driver it recommends so you can decide for yourself if you want to install it. And if you do, make sure you always check the "Create a Restore Point" box before installing.

In many cases you can simply install everything it recommends without a hitch. In some cases this will break your computer and require you to do a system restore, so be wary.

Snappy's UI is clunkier than the prettier IOBit, and it's process isn't entirely clear until you get used to it. The simplest procedure is to download the INDEXES first. This will cause the program to show you all relevant drivers. You don't need to install all the other Driver Packs. The program also uses torrents for downloading which is very convenient and future-proof, for the most part.

From what I gather this is the OG Snappy Driver Installer before it was loaded with Russian malware. I work on computers as a hobby and this has saved me on some difficult (old) builds when even the manufacturer's drivers fail.
