That is how they suck you in to take your money.
Free scan but pay to fix it.
Just stay away from all the "Free" online scan to check your drivers or for virus's etc.
Some will steal all your personal data off your PC or install virus/trojans on your PC to do so.

If your PC is working right then you don't need anything fixed.
If your having a problem then you came to the right place for FREE help.

Whatever antivirus software you are using be sure to run a full scan now to make sure something wasn't added by the driver checker already.

Then if your having a problem please post what is happening.

I wasn't sure if you were having problems or were going by the third party on line scanner.

Someone will help you in Crashes and Debugging as soon as someone is available to do so.
That isn't my specialty reading BSOD reports.

We are all volunteers so please be patient someone will read through it and post on that thread.

Good luck.

After seeing your thread in Crashes and Debugging, I wouldn't worry about those 9 "bad" drivers until you get those other issues sorted out. Probably also find that whatever is causing the problems in the other thread is causing the driver problems as well.

There is a totally free all in one solution for drivers and that is Driver Max.
You can visit the home page @:
http://www.drivermax.com/
And you can read the reviews, comments and the download at the following site:
http://download.cnet.com/DriverMax/3000-18513_4-10572602.html?part=dl-85782&subj=dl&tag=button
You can use the program for free but you have to sign-up first.
Good luck
