Driver issues after using Driver Booster 2

I used Driver Booster 2 last night after seeing that it got the update to v2.0, so ran it and saw that my drivers were out of date. I let it update them and ever since this I've been having issues getting these drivers to work properly again. System restore doesn't go back far enough, reinstalling the drivers hasn't solved the problem, no windows updates did anything, and I've restarted my computer several times.

Hi

I would suggest not using any third party driver updates best to update them from the manufacturer. So reinstall all drivers from Dell support site

After this, I won't be touching these kinds of programs with a ten foot pole. I'll update you on how that goes.

+1!!

All people do when they use System Optimizers and the like, is screw up everything.

Of course, if they would simply make a backup image, they would be up and running in minutes.

Yeah, it's really sad but I didn't think it'd cause such an issue. Definitely going to be more careful in the future.
