I was recently made aware of the FileHippo Update Checker program by a GTG mod, and I love it! I find it to be a very useful and handy tool that simplifies the update process a lot.
I was wondering if there was a similar program or tool that worked in much the same way, but for updating various drivers installed on a system?
I finally updated to Windows 7 about a year ago, and after doing so, one of the biggest issues I faced was finding the appropriate drivers for my hardware. I found most of them manually, but not without a series of difficult searches and careful deliberation first. I did find a program (admittedly, I forget what it was called), but it, of course, required a license and payment (much more than it was worth and I was willing to pay). I will be moving everything on my current HDD over to a new one, starting with a fresh Windows 7 install. I am inevitably facing the same situation as before, where I will be required to update several drivers. Many I will have no problems finding (my video and audio drivers, and even the main MB drivers as well), but I know that other smaller drivers will be missed, or require another painstaking search for what may or may not be the most up to date versions. Obviously, a driver tool similar to the FileHippo Update checker would save me a lot of time, energy, and money if one existed!
Thanks for your assistance as always, GTG!
