Take great care with this product. Without Kaspersky internet security system I would have unwittingly loaded an ‘Invader’ virus hidden in the Epson R800 driver.
Do NOT use the automated download. You are better off using the free version to identify the drivers that you need and then source them from reliable sites. I can no longer trust this product or their service. Unfortunately I shelled out my hard earned cash before finding all this out.

It appears I have a problem. When I try to register I have yet to find programs. I have put his on my credit card and as of this day its not doing anything for me.I have a letter about registration from the support department, but no luck so far with it. I understand this is supposed to be easy, but either my computer doesn’t like it or I am going about it all wrong. I have notice of a Safecart receipt #PCD******** and a registration key of ****************** but all of this still leaves me with much to be desired. If could find some easy way for me to get this straight it would be appreciated

Try restarting your computer and initiating the registration process again. I’ve enjoyed using Driver Detective for updating my drivers. I still recommend it highly.

james says

this software is a scam! it does nothing at all for you, and the company will not answer any communications at all, either, so it is a complete waste of time and money!!!

joe sasen says

the whole program is a scam. from the misleading cost to the bs they tell you to shake you loose when you ask for a refund stay away far away

David says

This company charged me for the program 40 days ago. I have still to recievce a registration/license code. The phone number for them is just an automated voice mail that cycles through the same things. trying to get service is apparently an act of futility. I think I may be charging at windmills, but, damnit they took my money and I deserve something.. Go anyplace but here!!!

admin says

I’m sure if you contact them they will honor their refund policy.

Try PC Updater at http://www.pcupdater.com

They will answer their phones and give you full computer support.

Wendy says

I have used it with no problem. I had a question that I e-mailed to them and had an answer back by e-mail the next day.I don’t know what all of you people that are complaining are doing wrong.I have successfully updated 9 drivers.It is really quite simple to use. Go to tech.net .com and maybe you can get some answers from them.

Darin says

I bought the Driver Dectective for $9.95. They charged my card $39.95 and will not give me a refund. I used the program once and started having all kinds of problems. When I went back to the drivers that were originally on my computer, all of the problems went away. When I contacted them for a refund of $29.95, they said that they had no record of me buying the product. When I offered to send them my card bill with the charge, they said they didn’t need it, because there were no records to match it to! What a bunch of wankers!! I called the BBB in their area and reported them.
