Are there any good safe driver sites ? apart from the few that re mentioned in the posts above. There are a number of reasons why are user may find themselves needing a driver for a peripheral and getting a driver from the manufacturer website is not an option.
Over the past year a family member has given all sorts odds and ends for my PC ( you me to use until I could afford to buy such things ) Some of the items came without their installation disk ,namely a scanner and a webcam the built in windows 7 driver update could't find an driver for them so i went to the manufacturers website for the scanner with no joy. The scanner wasn't supported with windows 7 only up to vista so that was no good, and webcam was a generic unbranded one so i couldn't go to the manufacturers website.
Apart from the windows update way and the manufacturers website method is there another safe way to find a driver?
