I was reluctant to install before reading the comments so far. Changed idea and will give iObit Driver Booster a try.

I have used this in the past and have not had any problems. I know some advise not to update drivers manually and to leave it up to Windows to do it automatically. I've never been in a situation where an outdated driver was causing problems and waiting for Windows to, possibly, eventually get to it would have been an issue. Nor have I been in a situation where I updated a driver and it caused an issue. Point being, I don't think such a program is a must but nor do I think it is one to avoid. It just comes down to personal choice.

I'd say try it, it's free today. If for no other reason but to run a scan and see what it says about your drivers. The scan and update are separate steps so running the scan will not modify anything. Once you get the scan results you then have the option to select to update any driver individually, choose a few or all or none.

Also, just FYI if you are hesitant, there is a restore previous feature in the "Tools" section if the new driver poses problems. Additionally, before I do any driver update I create a Windows system restore point just in case. I hope that helps some.

" I know some advise not to update drivers manually and to leave it up to Windows to do it automatically."

Microsoft doesn't have access to many drivers, and many drivers that Microsoft does have in its database are Not full packages. The Only driver I've seen Windows Update install that wasn't in the optional download category was a minimal AMD graphics driver -- Not the full driver setup. Perhaps worse, in many cases those drivers listed under optional are older versions when/if they apply to the actual hardware in use -- they don't always.

"Also, just FYI if you are hesitant, there is a restore previous feature in the "Tools" section if the new driver poses problems. Additionally, before I do any driver update I create a Windows system restore point just in case."

If you only install one driver at a time, Windows has the option to boot to the Last Known Good configuration with the old driver -- it's on the same boot menu screen as Safe Mode. And many devices in Device Mgr. let you roll back to the previous driver, providing you haven't deleted the old drivers, e.g. using Disk Cleanup.

Another useful and well made product from IObit. This 6 month offering nicely extends a previous 6 month installation of this app.

And If you haven't already done it, I also recommend IObit's Uninstaller app. Much more efficient than Windows built in utility, and it removes all kinds of leftover rubbish both including the registry .

Many thanks to GOTD and IObit!

Warning: Many people have caused themselves big problems by updating their devices with wrong drivers.
I would advice to let the operating system (Windows/Linux/OSX) decide when an update is necessary.
Remember these wise words: "if it ain't broken don't fix it".

So ... you have NOT used IObit Driver Booster then.

Ok, give IObit Driver Booster a try, and THEN let us know how IObit Driver Booster works for you.

- - - - - - - - - -

IObit Driver Booster has lots of tools, including a repair for Device Manager errors, that has eliminated sticky problems for me, and IObit Driver Booster has fixes for no sound, no network, and mis-resolution, plus the ability to find and off-load drivers for another computer that may not have a direct connection to the Internet yet.

Plus, I can compare IObit Driver Booster's recommended list of drivers to what I have and to what the vendor offers and make my own way-better-informed choices.

Plus IObit Driver Booster has a whole suite of software driver updates, such as Microsoft .NET, Visual C++, XNA Framework, Open AL, PhySX, DirectX, and so on, all in one place, easy to install and update.

So, folks, give IObit Driver Booster a try, and THEN let us know how IObit Driver Booster works for you.


Thanks.

Harry, driver from Windows Update also not foolproof. I was experiencing BSOD after Windows 10 RTM (back in 2015) automatically update and replace my Nvidia driver to bad one, even I have install official Nvidia driver before. Some driver also lagging behind the latest version from official vendor. Also, sometimes it didn't help to find machine vendor specifics driver like ACPI (rather than generic ACPI driver) which could improve performance and computer management, and didn't have drivers for certain obscure devices either!

"Remember these wise words: "if it ain't broken don't fix it"."

Well, we all could still be using horse drawn wagons, or in this case using Windows 3.1 on a 286, because both worked in some fashion. That said, while it's true that some driver updates only add support for newer hardware, most fix things -- no one writes new drivers just for fun. Usually there are docs stating at least the most important fixes for issues that many users may not be aware of, like reduced performance or security vulnerabilities.

In response to someone who wrote "... Peter Blaise, Nonsense. I work in a popular forum where I help people daily. Many many people come through the forums who have used THIS exact software and now they are suddenly getting BSODs because of improper updates or updates they simply didn't need. If your audio is working, you DON'T need to update it with a possibly buggy new driver. Yet this program will do EXACTLY that. Unnecessarily. Just because a driver is "newer" doesn't mean it is "better" or less buggy. Avoid this software ..."

No, avoid buggy drivers!

And IObit Driver Booster can help.

It's just a tool.

No tool can be smarter then the operator of the tool, essentially, but tools can be more resourceful, more automated - that is, I could manually find the same problem fixes and the same drivers I need by many other methods, but it's just nice to have so many convenient tools at hand and automated in one program such as IObit Driver Booster.

ANY tool in the wrong hands, used inappropriately, can result in misbehavior.

Good for you to help others through their struggles learning how to take responsibility for their own computers.

Perhaps you can help them understand that there are three levels of driver resources available:
- latest
- most stable
- Microsoft approved
and knowing how to explore those choices in IObit Driver Booster, and knowing how and why to make restorable backups as we try alternatives is some new insight that you can bring to your help forum now that you have access to actually using a full "pro" version of IObit Driver Booster.

Let us know how you experience all the tools within IObit Driver Booster.

And thanks again for helping others in need.

- - - - - - - - - -

PS - Alternatives:
- FREE Glary Utilities has a terrific driver backup tool, and a "basic" driver update finder, it's not automatic, it's not as vast, it doesn't update software drivers such as DirectX, .NET, and so on, but it is functional.
- FREE manufacturer support web pages, such as Dell, HP, Intel, AMD, Microsoft, and so on.
