2022-12-29 – Reviewing DriverTechie v220.127.116.11 on Windows 7×64 Pro Dell 2400MHz Zenon 16GB ram
1 – popped up a message that a Windows KB3033929 update was missing, so ‘driver may fail to install’ . . . but provides no way to get the update. So we have to manually get some needed updates. ( See https :// technet. microsoft. com/en-us/library/security/3033929 to explore Microsoft’s presentation ) I installed the update, the message still popped u, maybe I have to reboot and try again.
2 – there’s a fan-icon in the upper right corner, no explanation, clicking on it does nothing.
3 – the screen is not resizable, so our HUGE modern screen area is a waste, according to DriverTechie programmers – maybe all they own are little tiny 80-character-across by 24-lines-down monochrome screens from the 1980s?
4 – we cannot change the backup directory – and does not say what will go there, are the backups usable by Windows as native copies of prior drivers? Who knows? Note, it says “backuping’ when it is backing up. Translation? It saved 383 megabytes across 132 randomly labeled directories under C:\Users\…user…\AppData\Roaming\Techieware\DriverTechie\backup\ – what a mess, in order for Windows to use it, we have to keep all 383 megabytes together to be scanned in total, there’s no easy way to separate out one driver from another, for example, what is the driver in …\11\3\i386&\amd64 ?!? Instead, maybe make our own backups, FREE Glary Utilities has a nice “driver backup in native form” feature, and we can direct it to the directory of our choice.
5 – It does not seem to make a restore point before making changes, so we need to manually make our own restore points first and between any critical changes.
6 – VirusTotal says no hits, but . . . it uses Google Analytics on us, plus it matches rule FILE tracking GIF (1×1 pixel) from Suricata, sample has functionality to log and monitor keystrokes, analyze it with the keystroke simulation cookbook
Installs a raw input device (often for capturing keystrokes). Reads the hosts file ( why? ).
7 – does not compare current drivers versus it’s recommended updates.
For me, this does not distinguish itself, so compare to FREE and FOR-FEE alternatives and of course, start with drivers directly from the original hardware manufacturers.
Thanks for letting us explore this and sharing.

Downloaded, installed and registered OK but only have 60 days access to PRO version!
I contacted the programmers who assured me that they gave SharewareOnSale a 6-month access code. Can you confirm this please?
