    SNAILDRIVER - Automatically searches/installs all drivers


    SnailDriver homepage.

    This nice little program searches for all drivers and allow automatically download and installation. Easy to use, with a clutter free interface and free. It seems there isn't any crapware bundled either.

    Handy for those clean installations.

    Hi, Driver scanners are positively NOT recommended for Win 10, in respect of all system drivers maintained by MS.
    Why? Windows 10 introduces a new model where Uncle MS knows best.

    If you install a driver of different version to that Uncle MS deems best for you it will be replaced unless you take action.

    However for devices or special cases esp. where the driver is not maintained by MS, a driver scanner can sometimes find missing drivers. That's happened to me twice with Win 10, once for an old laptop, once for a USB device. (I used Drivermax)

    Why should I use that? It was only made in early 2016 from the looks of it and it still hasn't graduated from beta status. Compared to other driver updaters, why should I trust this unheard of one?
