Re: Tips to keep your system driver updated for maximum performance

I am using Driver Max that works really well. It is a nice tool which scan the entire system and give me drivers. I am using a paid edition. I think this is a worth buying software. Because it does everything automatically. I am having a old xp laptop for which I was not able to find drivers. But through drivers updater I am able to get everything. Free version of DriverMax is not so great. It is quiet annoying to wait back for other drivers everyday.
