Ma-Config.com is a browser plug-in that helps you to identify and install the correct drivers for your PC.
This plug-in is offered by My-Config.com, a site that runs this service for free, in partnership with TousLesDrivers.com. When installing this plug-in, be sure not to choose the "silent mode". Otherwise, it will be installed in French. You can install this plug-in to be used on a single computer, or on every computer on a LAN. Once it's installed, you need to go to My-Config.com’s site, where you can trigger the device detection by clicking on the "Run the Detection" button.
The plug-in will then show you a summary of the components found in your system, such as its motherboard, chipset, processor, memory, graphics card, IDE devices, drives, etc. It will also show valuable data about the performance of your system.
You can then choose to download the most recent versions of your drivers. The plug-in will then present you with a list of the drivers found for your operating system, and will offer you the possibility of downloading any of them.
\The download page is a French site, but all you need to do is click over the "Download" button, so it really does not make any difference. Ma-Config.com will also allow you to share your configuration with others, by creating a link to it that you can e-mail to anyone. This link will be good only for a week if you are not registered in My-Config.com.
“If you register (it is free) your configuration will be stored for a year, and you will be able to participate in the forums, and to create a "Signature" to use in them. Ma-Config.com supports Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Chrome and Safari browsers, running under Windows.”

How does My-Config technology work?:
This technology is built around a kernel. This kernel centralizes information modules that create an XML report describing the software and hardware configuration of a PC. I especially developed drivers able to access the heart of the machine in order to directly assess its hardware components. My technology uses certified ActiveX and Mozilla NPAPI plugins, which make it accessible from a web site. In the unfolding menu, you will find the first innovative applications of this technology.
