I don't see Driver Sweeper listed.
It has been changed to DriverFusion from a new software company called Treexy and there is still a free version.
Treexy - Software for everyday use

During the install there is a pre-checked option to install RealPlayer, if you don't want it, uncheck it.

How does this version compare to the older driver sweeper? Does it still do the job or I got to pay for it to work correctly?

Free Programs for Windows

Hi I would like to recommend the following programs,
Tianguang Software Studio Open ++. Could not live without this, can register dll's set up programs to open on the context menu. Very useful indeed.

Universal Viewer Universal Viewer — Open many file types: DOCX, XLSX, PDF and more
Throw all kinds of files at the feeware version of this program. Be careful to uncheck the tool bars on install.

Sage thumbs sagethumbs - A Windows Explorer extension allowing to preview many image formats - Google Project Hosting
Another very useful freeware viewer program.

PlacesBar Editor | Melloware All those windows dialogue boxes that point to places you never use? Change them with this program.
