Zen00 and Tony, thanks for your feedback too! We had our coder look at these issues and are already working on a fix and a way to improve our DB longer term too.

Best,

After reading some of the posts about this program, about the only thing I have good to say about it is that unlike some of the others that do the same thing, this one doesn't insist on running all the time.

One thing i would like to see you change, change the default "automatically install updates" changed. I can see lots of people that don't know any better (the "yes, click, OK, click, OK click" crowd) getting into trouble by installing an update that they shouldn't have.

Would also be a very good idea to provide a link to any updates so that people can see what the update actually is for; release notes, etc. Too many that rely on this sort of program have no idea what they are doing, only that it says there is an update available, not whether it is actually need or not.

After seeing the posted results, how on earth can this be called a final beta??!!

Suggesting AMD drivers for Intel systems and XP drivers for Win7?

You guys have some work ahead of you before this program can be taken seriously by anyone.

Hope you get it sorted.

Good luck

I'll give it a try on an XP HTPC I'm building next week. We'll see how well it does on that.

Just did that on an old ECS L7S7A2, SiS based Socket A system, and it is offering/telling me to update the USB2 driver. Wouldn't be so bad I guess if it wasn't for the fact that the driver comes with Windows (running XP SP3), and that the driver comes from Asus and has this to say in theReadMe,

Windows 2000 USB2.0 Driver Installation
========================================

Please using Windows 2000 SP4 (Service Pack 4) or later versions, you DO NOT need to
install this driver, because they already contain software support for USB 2.0.
So why is it even being offered in the first place?

Thanks all for the feedback, we are days away from another release that will be a lot less aggressive with system-level drivers. The reason a lot of you are seeing this is that our beta was focused on consumer market: to put it simply, we want to make it easy for our moms to fix their sound or video without anyone's help. Members of this forum are a lot more sophisticated and push their hardware and OS to the limit so we're getting a ton of interesting info.

If any of you are interested in giving us feedback directly we do have a forum at Device Doctor Forum

Thanks again,

Collin
