Windows 7: Opinions on "SlimDrivers" Automated Driver Updater

I also don't use driver search programs. Like Layback Bear, my systems go many months or years with only an occasional video driver update, unless I get a new piece of hardware. I always get drivers directly from the manufacturer or motherboard vendor, or from Windows if necessary to get me going before I can find the manufacturer's driver.

There is no reason to use a driver update program with all of their potential for malware. Doing a little legwork yourself can save hours or days of unwanted hassle.
