I've installed Driver Detective few days ago. The installation was very easy. After the installation completed, I tried to run it, but the software could not run. It needed to connect to the internet and I didn't had internet connection at the time. It showed error message. In my opinion, error message was bad. Why? because the error message did not give good information and appeared with bad design. I think the software developer must be handle the error message with better information and user-interface.
