The Easiest Way to Scan and Update Your Device Drivers

Drivers are the small program acting like a middleware between hardware and operating system that helps the parts of your computer communicate well with each other. Without them running properly, you won’t have a working computer for you. It’s an equal important component, though invisible most of the time, that keep everything together working like a single piece. So, they also need to be updated to keep up with the constantly patched up operating system.

But how many of us are doing this? We often keep the same version of driver and let it run for years without updating them. It’s not that we don’t know it but because it’s just so tedious to update them.

Driver Booster is an ultimate free driver updater that not only scans to find out-of-date drivers, but also updates them with the latest drivers available online. It makes a whole process so easy that all you need to do is to open the program, and click the big red Update All button.

The program can also be set to automatically run at Windows startup, and be scheduled to scan on daily, weekly, or monthly basis. You can definitely set it and forget it to leave it along doing the job. Because it will automatically create a restore point before a driver is installed, you get a much better chance to bring your computer back if one of the updated driver crashes your whole system.

Driver Booster works primarily on Windows, from XP to Windows 8. Both 32-bit and 64-bit are supported.

Verdict

Not like many others on the market, Driver Booster does scan as well as update. It’s a complete package when it comes to driver update on Windows, arguably the best one out there that not only gets the job done but also doesn’t cost you a penny of doing so.
