Driver Booster

Driver Booster

Driver Booster free version searches and updates drivers for Windows Operating System. For a free version, we find this driver updating software impressive as it picks up vital updates. Unlike the paid version which automatically updates all drivers, the free version can only indicate and you will have to make multiple clicks updating the drivers one-by-one.

Key functions:

  • Scans for outdated drivers
  • Performs a silent installation of drivers
  • Manages a significant number of device drivers which include Samsung, Dell, Intel, Radeon as well as other giant companies

 

  • Pros:
  • Extensive driver library to update a range of computer hardware devices
  • Silent installation of drivers
  • Silent installation of drivers
  • Restore-point
  • Cons:
  • Does not automatically update all drivers at once as it requires the user to manually click on each and every indicated device
  • Lengthy installation (it took us 35 minutes actually), bloatware
  • Takes too much disk space

Tips. Always check the size, date of release, as well as the version number of the driver that needs to be updated to know the best time to perform an update. Also, when installing, select custom installation to avoid unwanted apps and extensions like Yandex.

Verdict. There is not much difference between the free and paid version of Driver Booster. If you have got time, then, it should not be a problem to manually update every single driver indicated. After all, you only need to click and it will install the selected ones on your command.
