My computer is running slow and having trouble connecting to the Internet. In my attempts to find what's wrong I ran across the web site, Driver Update. I downloaded it, Internet access improved, and I got another screen to download a bunch of other updates. My question: is Driver Update legit, or is it a scam to get into my computer and mess it up? Thanks for your help.

I do not know anything about Driver Update specifically. My guess would be that it is legit. But I really do not know. I do know that there are driver update sites/programs that are legit. They look at the drivers on your computer, look online for the latest drivers available, and compare your driver with the latest to see if a newer one is available. You can actually do the same thing manually if you know how. The one problem that I have come across with these is that the newest driver is not always the best. Some people have installed a newer driver only to find out that it does not work for them. You just have to be careful and ready to undo it if something does not work.
