We’ve launched one of the most exciting features in years, every driver/firmware detail page now includes an analysis of those factors which should make you trust or mistrust that driver/firmware. You have to make the final call, but we’ll tell you what we think, and why. The factors for trust we analyze include: file origin, virus scan results, and member feedback.
And what’s most exciting, you’ll find that more than 2/3 of our drivers/firmware come from a trusted source! A trusted source can be a trusted site (e.g., manufacturer’s site) or a trusted user (e.g., our paid DriverGuide Techs who upload only from trusted sites or installation CD-ROMs/floppies).
We’ve always tried to ensure you only get the safest drivers, by encouraging and displaying ratings/comments, and by always scanning for viruses, but now we take it a big step further. So, welcome to the new and more trustworthy DriverGuide!
