Keeping your PC and other hardware drivers in good shape is not a trivial matter. Driver Booster offers you a free one-click tool to detect, locate, download, and update all your missing, faulty, or outdated drives in a breeze. Its thorough scan process will identify all the drivers installed on your PC and will provide you with all the tools you need to update them and thus improve your system’s performance.

With an unbeatable support for more than 200,000 drivers, Driver Booster is capable of identifying all the drivers on your PC regardless of how rare they are and who their manufacturer is. After a short yet comprehensive scan process, you will be presented with two lists – one with those drivers that need fixing or updating, and another list with your up-to-date drivers. At a glance, you are able to learn all you need to know about your drivers – their name, their manufacturer, the date they were installed, and their version number. Outdated drivers are categorized as “Old” or “Extremely Old”, and they are presented on a separate list with a special section for game-related drivers. You can update all of them in just one go or select those you wish to update first. Actually, you can leave specific drivers out of the updating process permanently by including them in the corresponding “ignore list”.

You can also check the “UpToDate” drivers list if you wish – it will tell you all about the piece of equipment it is related to, its name and manufacturer, and the version currently installed on your computer.

Though all drivers in Driver Booster’s database have been thoroughly checked against Windows Hardware Quality Testing (WHQT), some incompatibility issues or other minor problems may arise from time to time. When that happens, all you have to do is go to the program’s Rescue Center and restore your system to a state previous to the drivers update. There you will find all the restore points that Driver Booster has created previous to any new driver update operation, thus guaranteeing full system performance.

Be it to improve and speed up your gaming experience, be it simply to keep you system running smoothly and at top speed at all times, having your system’s drivers updated regularly is a PC maintenance operation that no Windows user should take for granted. Driver Booster offers you a free and efficient solution to solve all issues related to your Windows drivers.
