which finds the names of unknown devices making it easier to find drivers.
This is a commen topic at work, while yes doing it that way it certainly better and more through as you can go to device manager and doanload the all the drivers you need, it is also a slow and lenthy procsses.
Even more so if you are refurbing a PC from scratch aka fresh windows install, not like just updateing one or two drivers, plus with these programs it tells you wich ones need updateing ware as doing it munaly mean you need to go and search the excat pice of hard ware to justfind out if it even has a update let aonge downloading and installing it, so doing this for every part of a refurbished PC...no thanks!
so we often use these at work, (charity orginsation) and even have driver packs made up ready to install direct form a network onto a machine.
But I wont disbute doing it the hardway is likely more through!
And 100% the best way to do it one your own / home pc to keep it up to date.
