    I am of the general opinion that these programs are little more than a scam. They charge you money for basically just going to the manufacturer websites looking for any new driver updates. Something you could do yourself very easily. Also, drivers are something that don't need to be updated very often. It's only if a specific bug, that you are experiencing, is fixed or some new feature is added that you want to take advantage of, which is very rare.

    So basically they're selling you a service that would take almost no effort on your own part and isn't even necessary in the vast majority of circumstances. If you can still get your money back, I would, otherwise call it a lesson on why you should ask questions like this before forking over any money.
