> What is DriverScanner 2009?
Drivers are the files Windows needs to make sure your hardware not
only works, but works to its full potential. The problem is that your
machine likely has a hundred or more drivers and it's a nightmare
keeping them up to date.
DriverScanner 2009 takes care of this for you: it automatically scans
your machine, finds outdated drivers, downloads all necessary files
and even installs them.
But ...
If you are 100% perfectly organized, have plenty of time to spare,
understand technical jargon and are incredibly patient, DriverScanner
2009 might *not* be for you!
For the rest of us normal folks, DriverScanner 2009 is a must!

In the meantime he was creating useful educational software that an autistic child could use. Now millions of people and schools enjoy what he sacrificed to create!

Now to me that is success! SEE MORE AT SCHOOLGENIUS
