I am using Driver Pack solution 12.3 to update my drivers. I used it and installed 55 drivers. I noticed that there are now several dozen new entries in add/remove programs under the name Windows Driver Package - Intel hdc, Windows Driver Package - Intel System, and Windows Driver Package - Intel USB with the driverpack solution logo next to them. When I hit uninstall for any of these, it says all devices using this driver will be removed, and I am scared of uninstalling anything I do not know about. I have no system restore points before I updated my driver. Will these extra driver packages slow down my computer or take up extra disk space? Can I uninstall them safely? I am using Windows 8, so refreshing the computer is an option.
Do not use such rubbish programs to install drivers! Get all latest drivers from manufacturer sites only and manually install yourself. Spend some time and effort to avoid such complaints later. Extra useless drivers are not good. Remove all, then go to Device Manager and refresh to detect hardware and install proper drivers only. If not possible to clear all drivers, refresh or reset PC and learn a valuable lesson.
I have used driverpack for years now since before windows 7, and I have NEVER had a problem with this, and it finds drivers from the internet that are even more updated than some of the one's off of the site, too!! It performs a Restore point before it changes Anything, and is a very handy program for finding missing drivers for your chipsets, because it actually reads the hardware registers and finds the Real drivers from it's database. So if you don't use it, don't just automatically dismiss it, because you are ignorant of it.
