    Hi folks
    @swarfega

    @f14tomcat

    Driver updaters are even more insidious --they are usually "Sneakerware" I.e they say we´ve found an update for your machine but you need to "Go PRO" i.e update to the paid version or you have to pay to access that area of the website. Drivers are invariably available without charge from the vendor's hardware site.

    If you have any trouble finding out what the hardware is

    just in the control panel-->system--device manager

    right click say on a piece of hardware then properties then events

    you'll see a \ven etc piece of text

    In this case I know what the hardware is but the method also works when you get the "dreaded Unknown Device" !!!!!

    Click image for larger version.

    use that as a search and you'll get the hardware and vendor id. "Seempleees"

    I LOATHE sneakerware even more than the scammers -- at least with scammers you know are being ripped off but these driver sites are hideous as they trap all sorts of people into paying for stuff that is free and easy to find.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the @ Mention, Jimbo, but again, this has nothing to do with the OP's question.

    How about

    Yes, the responses answer my question. I was thinking the Pro version of CCleaner would not display the ads but I wanted to confirm. And I always update my software manually, avoiding driver and software update programs. Thanks!
