Windows 7: Driver Update Utility - Free

Driver Update Utility - Free

I found a free driver update utility, Slim Drivers which scans your system and lets you download updated drivers for your devices. It is free and requires registration with your email address and a log in on each use. Sometimes it will show a driver for something you don't have.
You may choose to ignore individual drivers. Each driver has to be downloaded and installed separately. There is also an option to make a driver backup file.
It found four outdated drivers for me.

Several, including Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
 
 

This actually works quite well, but it is not completely accurate, and it is essential to check the results it gives, elsewhere, before installing the drivers.

Thank you Briton 30 for the information about a free tool for updating drivers, right after reading this forum I checked out Slim and it's interesting but I also came across with this popular software for updating drivers: Driver Detective software -- http://www.driverdetectiveregistrationkey.com/ and it's also good. Maybe I'll just do a comparison between them and choose which one is better.. Thank you!

How come no one mentioned the most well known and used, Driver Max, free version.
