It only tells you which drivers are outdated then you have to buy it before it will update them for you. Of course once you know which drivers are outdated you can simply go to the manufacturer's site of whatever hardware you have and download those drivers directly.

Then you have to HOPE that the drivers are really the correct one's and they don't hose your system, which I have seen these programs do, several times!

Hosing your system is a strong statement and may not be 100% accurate in all instances that I've seen, but I wouldn't trust one of these things!

Yeah, I actually tried it out and some of the drivers it told me I needed were wrong. For example my VIA HD audio driver is up to date but it wanted me to update to a newer version; when I checked on it I learned the version it was suggesting was for a different chip than mine.

I would recommend skipping programs like this and updating your drivers manually, and then only if there is a reason too. If everything is working fine I'd let it be.
