IObit's Driver Booster is a simple and straightforward tool which can scan your system for outdated drivers, then download and install replacements with a click. Upgrade to the Pro version and you gain additional features such as backup, faster download speeds and wider hardware support.
The program is unusually easy to use. There's no complex interface, no searching around trying to decide what you need to do: just launch Driver Booster, it immediately scans your PC, and a detailed report appears a few seconds later.
You can then click the "Update" button individually for particular drivers, handy if you want to keep precise control over exactly what's going on.
Or if you're in a hurry, just click "Update Now" and Driver Booster will download and launch each update. Thanks to a silent update mechanism, you no longer have to manually wade through each and every driver update package but do expect to reboot at the end of the process.
It's incredibly simple to use, but more experienced users will find plenty of tweakable options available should they need them.
Note that Driver Booster becomes the PRO version after you enter your activation code you receive with your order. The PRO version offers additional functionality such as access to a wider driver database, driver backup/restore, an auto-fix tool to check and repair driver errors, a game booster module and much more.
Includes a 3-PC, 1-Year license.
Review by Mike Williams.
Most system performance issues are often a result of other software clashing with your brand new software. For instance, security software can clash with a background process, such as a system maintenance tool or defragmentation software. Another cause of system slowdown, is a result of two software applications performing a similar task. As an example, Windows includes a firewall switched on as a default. Your new security suite is likely to include a firewall. You only need one firewall running. In this example, try turning off your system firewall.
Uninstalling Your New Software
Occasionally you may need to either temporarily or permanently remove your new software.
On a Windows computer, go to the Control Panel and choose Programs and Features. Locate the program within the list, then click it to highlight it. Finally, click the Uninstall button at the top of the list and follow the instructions to remove the program from your PC.
On an Apple Mac computer, using Finder, locate the Applications folder. Within the Applications folder, find the name of the application you wish to remove. Simply drag the icon to your Trash icon in your dock. Empty the Trash to remove the files from your computer.
