I've been using CCleaner for a long time now, but don't use the drive updater feature. I tried using it just now and need the paid version to use the drive updater. Since I'm not gonna do that, is there a free trusted drive updater that any of you use?

Manufacturer's websites is the only free "driver updater" I trust

Ugh, I can't believe shit like ccleaner still exists. 

 

Windows has all of the tools required to keep it "clean" name it disk defrag, system cleanup and windows update. Drivers are downloaded from manufacturers sites.

 Finitude is what the two clock hands indicate as they point towards my cruel destiny.

On top of what I just posted, what drivers aside GPU drivers for new games and optimizations (which AMD or Nvidia take care of anyway) do you constantly feel need updating that Windows update or the latest at time of install from the manufacturer's website can't address?

ah, ccleaner. used to be "crap cleaner" now just "cancerous cleaner"

you're best ditching it. a shadow of its former self and just another bit of bloatware at this point, sadly.

This has all got to do with me trying to play Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition for PC. I keep getting an error message that a device does not support DRX1.1. So I'm running around trying to figure out what isn't updated. My windows version is 21h1. So I need to know what I don't have.

That's either a software bug with that Enhanced Edition version (as many people mention on a quick google search) and most people just gave up because no matter what hardware they had on 20H2 or later it kept giving them that same error.

Or you need to update your GPU drivers using GeForce Experience or directly download from Nvidia the Game Ready Drivers to the latest for Nvidia GPUs (since I see you're running a 1080Ti), there is nothing else that can trigger that error.

 

Edit:

Or it's down to the fact you need a RTX GPU to play the Enhanced Edition as some articles allude to.

Thank you, but now the NVIDIA website is giving me and access denied page... Edit; Never mind, I got to the page...

 

Edit again; Thanks for the feedback all. The simply can't run on a 1080 Ti.

Yah, the error should be clearer as to why but still sucks

If you have a Nvidia or AMD gpu just go into task manager get the model then search up drivers for it and you'll be good

What are your specs?

 

You do need a card with realtime ripoff tracing in order to play "enhanced" ed. of that particular game. Why? well, green team put a stack on top of devs desk and kindly asked to make it "exclusive" so they can kiiiiiinda justify that pointless feature. I bet there's a way to make it work on AMD and non-meme cards but that's up to pro modders to find out.
