Gibt vor, die Aktualität alle Treiber zu prüfen und bietet dann (gegen Geld natürlich!) neuere Treiber an. Was daran wahr ist, lässt sich allerdings nicht überprüfen. Meldet sich dann monatlich mit neuen Geldforderungen. ACHTUNG: Nichts installieren, nichts kaufen, keine Kreditkartennummern bekannt geben!

Das Prg. wird im Internet teilweise als Freeware angeboten, verlangt aber bei der Installation eine kostenpflichtige Registrierung. Danach zeigt es schnell eine große Anzahl von zu ersetzenden Treibern an und lädt sie auch herunter. Deren teilweise komplizierte Installation bleibt dann allerdings dem User überlassen! Somit ist das Prg. nicht wirklich hilfreich.

Best practices for resolving UpdateMyDrivers issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with UpdateMyDrivers. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the UpdateMyDrivers.exe process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries.
