Driver Booster is a free utility from IObit that allows you to identify and update obsolete drivers. The application scans your computer to quickly detect outdated drivers, which can be the cause of numerous problems in your PC, like slow performance, instability, system crashes, etc. Keeping drivers updated is important and Driver Booster can help you in this task.

The application works in a very simple manner and makes the task of updating drivers very easy to accomplish. As soon as you launch the application, a scan starts automatically to detect all the drivers installed in your computer. The results of the scan will show you a list of drivers, highlighting the items that need to be updated and showing how they are affecting the performance of your PC. To start the update you just need to click the button next to any selected driver; alternatively, and to make the task faster, the application lets you update all the obsolete drivers at once with one single click. Options like the possibility of installing drivers in the background, silently, make the installation process completely unattended, compressing dialog boxes, wizard windows, and pop-up messages.

Wide functionality is available via the Settings dialog, like the chance of selecting the interface language and skins, or setting the application to start up by default with Windows startup. You can also schedule system scans to a certain frequency and add drivers to the ignored list, so that they are not detected during the scan.

The free version of Driver Booster differs with the full edition in terms of the number of features offered by the latter, but works exceptionally well and makes the task of updating drivers fast and simple.
