Keep your Windows drivers current with Driver Booster

1420722467_icon_256x256If there’s one thing that I know, its Windows PC’s. The life blood of a Windows PC is its hardware drivers. When they don’t work right, are out dated, or conflict with other drivers, then your whole PC can tank. Its performance can go right down the proverbial tubes.

When you have a notebook computer, you’re likely confined to a specific set of drivers, as much of the equipment is not upgradable or interchangeable. You aren’t going to be able to change out your graphics card or your drive controller on a notebook, for example, while doing this on a desktop computer is fairly common. Its here where apps like Driver Booster really shine.

Driver Booster is an easy-to-use hardware driver updater. It analyzes your installed drivers for outdated ones and then automatically installs the right update with just one click. It has a newly adopted online database insuring that your drivers are always the latest version. Moreover, it`s specially designed to tune drivers for peak gaming performance.

Drive Booster protects PCs from hardware failures, conflicts, and system crashes. Outdated drivers heavily affect your PC’s performance and lead to system crashes. Driver Booster, designed with IOBit’s most advanced driver update technology, scans and identifies outdated drivers automatically. When it finds an update, it downloads and installs it for you with just one click, saving you time and a lot of headaches.

Drive Booster is specially designed to tweak drivers for better gaming performance. It insures better PC performance by enhancing security with Restore, Uninstall & Rollback features. It protects your PC from hidden security vulnerabilities, hardware failures, conflicts, and system crashes.

IOBit Driver Booster is part of Advanced System Care. The two apps kinda come bundled together; and while some may like that, I’m not a huge fan of program bundles. When I install something I only want what I’ve tried to install and not a bunch of other stuff that happens to come with what ever I’m trying to install. In many cases, the bundled apps are junk. While this is clearly NOT the case with any of IOBit’s products, I still don’t like getting stuff I didn’t expect when it comes to app installs.

Driver Booster in and of itself is a decent app. It does what it does very well; and can in many cases, save your bacon if your having driver issues. As of this writing, the app is also on sale. IOBit has it for 70% off, for a license that gets you a one year subscription for up to three PC’s.

Keep your PC’s hardware working to the best of its ability with Smart Driver Updater

Keep your PC’s hardware working to the best of its ability with this important Windows utility.

SDU-01

One of the most important parts of any operating system as the drivers for each component under the hood or connected to your computer.  Having really good drivers can mean the difference between your PC running well, your performance tanking or not being to use either an accessory or peripheral or the entire PC.  This is especially important with newer operating systems, as updates to drivers can come, literally, all the time.  At that point, versioning can become an issue as app and driver installers are notorious for leaving artifacts behind and in some cases, drivers can even become outdated. This is why I really like Smart Driver Updater.  It helps you find and keep the best drivers for your Windows PC, up to date.

Just because a file is a driver file, doesn’t mean that it’s excluded from errors and other kinds of file corruptions that happen to other Windows components.  As peripherals and accessories move through their life cycle, drivers get updated and your copies can become out dated, quickly; and you often won’t know if that happens. Most computer connected devices don’t have auto-updaters.

Sometimes, installation processes can go sideways and an update gets applied incorrectly.  Or sometimes OTHER drivers get updated, and that update effects the performance of another peripheral or accessory because they share some kind of soft-component…  When something like this happens, it can take one, the other or both drivers – and devices – down.

Provided that the device or accessory isn’t damaged, all you likely need to do is update the actual driver file(s) for any related accessories and you’re back in business. Unfortunately, trying manually track this stuff down can be a HUGE headache. I know from firsthand experience. It can be a nightmare, especially if you’re trying to update drivers for more than one device at a time. This is where Smart Driver Updater comes to your rescue.

Smart Driver Updater has a database of over 600,000 drivers. The app’s database is constantly updated and edited to make sure that the best driver updates are available. With Smart Driver Updater, you’ll always have the latest driver updates available to you.

Having a Windows PC – especially for someone like me who is constantly testing both software and hardware – means that you’re always only a few months away from a complete tear down and rebuild of your PC.  If you ever have to nuke the hard drive and start from scratch, getting right back where you were with all of your drivers is very easy with Smart Driver Updater. It backs up all of your drivers to a zip file that is easily exported, giving you a quick, easy way to get back to where you were.

Smart Driver Updater isn’t the kind of application that has a lot of bells and whistles. It’s no nonsense, pragmatic approach to keeping your computer’s and peripheral’s drivers updated and current isn’t going to be the application that you ache to run every time you boot up your PC… That is, until it saves your bacon.  Then, you’re probably not going to want to run your computer without it.

The app’s Scheduler gives you standard “set it and forget it” functionality. Once activated, the app will scan your drivers at startup or at a day and time during the week or month and tell you what needs updating.  Putting that in place should be part of EVERY Windows PC’s boot process so that your PC is always running at peak performance.
