I am always very careful about that kind of program promising to make your PC better and faster...

Like all those Free, Powerful and All-in-one utility for cleaning your PC, update drivers, boosts speed, fixes errors, crashes and freezes...and make your coffee.

All of them ended up messing up my otherwise perfectly good working computer.

This one is only about updating drivers, but they are so important in a computer i would not let any commercial program touch them. If it is not broken...

The problem with all driver update software is, they aren't always the best and can make your system worse. Driver's are always changed with each manufacturer.

Example RealTek audio drivers will get updated with whatever software you use, but the problem is, the manufacturer haven't tested those as being the best for their boards etc, then when you install them, they can remove other parts of the software like Sound manager which some provide like Asus.

Windows will install the best driver anyway, but again you will lose parts of any software which your manufacturer installed with it.

I have been using Iobit Driver Booster for years and it has worked good. Lately, I have been using SDI Snappy, a free program with contribution if you would like and comparing it to the update list of drivers Iobit produces. Pretty much matches Iobit driver for driver so SDI is pretty good. There have been a few times SDI showed a driver update that Iobit did not.

Actually, if you are going to pay money for one of these type programs I think Driver Easy is better than Iobit. Driver Easy found updates that Iobit did not almost every time I have used it. They have a free version but it does not work well. Wonder why?

Once again - trying to get a quick feel of whether an offered program is worthwhile - I look at the user rating 69% positive at this point in time. Read the user reviews - only one of the 13 vaguely positive (Thanks for the free program) - where does the overall thumbs up come from?

Microsoft will provide some drivers &/or updates via Windows Update, though those may or may not be the full driver package. Win10 may show optional updates on Windows Update, which are drivers Microsoft detected that may or may not be of use -- their wording is something like if you're having trouble these may help. Some component manufacturers provide reference drivers for download, but discouraged this, wanting all updates in their database, so many, i.e. Realtek, stopped. Since some components are used by many manufacturers, sometimes drivers for one brand & model laptop, motherboard etc. will work on others. Some driver update software & web sites offer these *maybe* equivalents. Dumo frees you from having to check manufacturers sites for updates yourself.

Les,

I've noticed that if I give any software on this site a thumbs up, it shows up instantly, incrementing the count up by 1.

If I give it a thumbs down, I get a prompt as to why I am choosing that. After I make a selection as to why, the counter never increments to show my thumbs down vote, even if I refresh the page. I'm not sure if they filter the thumbs down selections, adding them later if the reason is "approved" (similar to the comments section), or if there is a bias on here and some of the thumbs down just never make it into the count. Perhaps it is the latter so as to not discourage the software vendors from returning in the future...

It is incredibly difficult for any group of programmers to analyze and update drivers accurately and appropriately, Intel can't even do it for my Intel system using Intel programs.

Sadly, this brought me back to Intel rather than to a specific driver.

Suggesting I update a Paragon driver, it brought me to a Google search for Paragon, showing a map to a local restaurant.

Yum.

This is not a driver update program, this is an April Fools entertainment distraction.

Sorry, Kyle, but it's time to retire the MARKETING for DUMo.

Yes, DUMo can probably list the drivers we have.

No, DUMo cannot identify nor find appropriate alternatives and updates.

Alternatives:

IObit Driver Booster has been faultless for at least a year in my experience, getting better all the time, now limited to one driver a day via the free version, now limited to no software drivers via the free version, such as Java and .net and such - bit IObit is even better than Intel for Intel drivers.

Glary Utilities free makes the best usable drive backup before changing anything, and also checks for the need to update, and conservatively says "all ok" almost all the time, and that's probably appropriate, since most systems work just fine without the need to update, considering that updates are usually available simply because there's new hardware out there also, and the manufacturers are making ONE suite to drive everything, so the actual "update", when applied to older hardware, will install ... the original drivers as appropriate anyway, the update will merely reinstall the same programming under a new version number.

Computer vendor's site: HP, Dell, Lenovo, and so on have their own suite of drivers for each serial number computer, go get them and save them for reinstall when needed, such as when reinstalling Windows 7 every year.

Politely disagree... Driver backups *may* be fine -- Windows itself often stores the last known good driver when you update a driver, and that's accessible via the boot menu -- but if a driver breaks Windows so it won't start, driver backups are useless. Consider a disk/partition image backup instead. RE: drivers being updated to just include new models, sometimes that's true, which research should reveal. But very often they include fixes, even when the focus is on new models, because the company didn't want to spend the $ on a driver update just for those fixes.

"Computer vendor's site: HP, Dell, Lenovo, and so on have their own suite of drivers for each serial number computer, go get them and save them for reinstall when needed, such as when reinstalling Windows 7 every year."

Those manufacturers will only provide updates for roughly a year -- updates will continue to be released by the component manufacturer, e.g. Intel, but those companies won't spend the $ to evaluate them against their now old hardware. Worse, to prevent customers from potentially causing problems, these companies also try to add locks, so newer drivers without the company's blessing cannot be installed. This was/is enough of a problem that Intel started making it possible to override such locks.

Reinstalling Win7 yearly? I have copies that date to its release, and now live on as VMs -- still running just fine.

Peter Blaise, Keep an eye on here for Driver Booster Pro giveaway of the day. About every six months it seems it appears. I agree, I've used it for several years and it's good. Pro is the way to go, though.

Peter Blaise, I strongly suspect that DUMo does not reference any driver suppliers for driver freshness or availability of new drivers at all. I suspect it uses a database it builds of all users that use the DUMo product and it calling home with a list of driver versions and VEN/DEV codes and assumes the driver versions being reported are signed and openly available to all if they use google and chip makers websites to search for them... Of course some users may be using hacked drivers, unsigned drivers and windows in Test Signing mode and report private driver versions or driver versions that are tied to a particular OEM configuration. Reason I suspect this is the data on vendors website for any particular driver is reporting user driver versions and the number of users that use specific versions and ASSUMES the current version is the one with most number of users using it... and on older hardware like that of my 10 year old HP pavilion laptop it reports most of the drivers are upto date but only because I am the only user using that particular hardware to have tried running DUMo so my version of drivers is the only usage stats it has harvested... This seems like a very low cost system requiring no active storage beyond the data they harvest from their own users and processing that to guess the freshness of drivers and what *might* be available out there somewhere that might possibly function on their devices.

Its like Kyle is hosting a a databse of all his softwares users driver and hardware details and sharing that data in an anonymized form with the other users. I am not sure I agreed to that or it was made overtly clear the amount of data that was being harvested by Kyles servers in those few https connections made to his servers on each run.

Oh and a big mistake by Kyle on the setup.exe he provided for this giveaway... it has been linked to require WIndows NT version 6.1 and above so WILL NOT INSTALL UNDER XP OR VISTA! The portable zip on kyles site runs under XP and above ok and accepts the giveway license for what it's worth. The dumo_lite.exe available on the KCSoftware download page has the same SHA256 hash as the giveaway setup.exe so is also built incorrectly for NT 6.1 and above only with Vista/XP/Server 2008/Server 2003 all reporting the installer is not a valid win32 application.

Thanks, TK, very insightful.

I still support Vista, but mostly Windows 7 ... which is really Vista v4 ;-), I just prefer the File Explorer layout of 7 more than Vista, yet I have Vista and XP and even Windows 95 networked with WIndows 7 and 10 for customers and it's seamless ... when 10 actually occasionally works.

If I were to build a driver updater, I'd categorize why each update exists:
- to accommodate newer hardware NOT in m PC?
- security?
- bug fixes?

And I'd categorize and keep all versions toggleable via a menu and a reboot:
- lightest weight ( text- and image-users, versus gamers ),
- age,
- original as installed on day 1 by the vendor,
- iterations and latest,
- beta, have the fire extinguisher ready.

It would be nice to click a driver and have a pop-up offer an inventory of older and newer alternatives with appropriate information notes, and whether or not we have it on file, or have to go get it.

And I'd record notes, such as "buggy" and "faster" and "slow to load" and other information that keeps track of observed differences between drivers.

IObit offers an option to choose between the newest drivers versus the most stable drivers, though I've not seen a manifestation of that meaning anything different in the actual retrieval of updates.

Sadly, Kyle/KCSoftwares isn't even trying to help us build a spreadsheet inventory of what we've got, what we've had, and what's available, there's not much management help.

Thanks, Mike, but we can reboot in safe mode, uninstall devices, and then reboot in plug-and-pray mode, and reinstall our choice of drivers, skipping the crasher.
__________

The longevity of an installation in my experience depends on NOT playing with it, I have original Windows 95/98 untouched, and of course, DOS 6, no problem.

Windows 7, especially with OS operating system enhancements coming and going, seems to develop a swollen registry that no longer fits in the computer, and so, instead of troubleshooting after a fashion, I reinstall from scratch, and within 1/2 a day, a reinstall has it neat, clean, and fast once more, plus I get to update older smaller drives to 2 TB.
__________

I have no understanding of virtual machines, nor they of me.

I have a dozen computers, and I'm not sure what a virtual machine would offer me.

Isn't a virtual machine on another machine anyway, and doesn't that other machine have an operating system to maintain, with an end-user sitting at it?

It's not like I have a mainframe tower serving my virtual machines to my dozen computers, nor would I want that.

When I travel, I might bring a handful of computers, and they all still work together with no need to tether to the home mainframe virtual machine server ( which may not be readily available anyway, depending on seasonal and location connection variables outside my control, or the home being down altogether and the reason I'm traveling ).

Virtual machines for end-users, in my experience, are becoming rarer considering remote working where people necessarily have a physical computer, and only need a common file- and interaction-server somewhere to coordinate remote users who used to be in one facility but are now spread all over - and I see cloud servers for the disorganized ( from Microsoft, Adobe, and so on ).

Perhaps those cloud servers can be on virtual machines.

That ain't me, yet.

Thanks for exploring this and sharing.

Having just deleted the free version of both this and sumo, I find that I have to agree with the comments. The only difference I can see between this and the free version, is I assume, I won't be taken to a page encouraging me to buy the pro version. I am not looking for the prog to download and install the drivers, but I do want updated drivers. I found that the driver version for my graphics card was more up to date using my experience software.

charliecat, Ok, tried it and found it was just as useless as the free version. Using the Dumo server only adds a google search list for you to pick from, while the manufacturer site one takes you to the front page of that site. Aside from it telling you that drivers are out of date I see no advantage of using this. I-obit driver updater is far more helpfull

Reply   |   Comment by charliecat  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

charliecat, this is a spoof driver update checker in that the vendor has programmed NO CHECK with hardware or driver suppliers or any database generated by real driver availability sources other than the users of the software itself so if windows update updates my intel driver first and I then run DUMo it reports a user is using the a new version of a particular Intel devices driver but it does not know if the driver is offered by Intel directly or via windows update or via the users devices OEM... and certainly does not have a database server hosting a copy of the alleged new driver either. I bet it would not take too much work to back engineer the https traffic and spoof version numbers in Kyles database and spoof the spoofer!

Gosh, TK, there's a bit of speculation in your assessment, BUT ...

... it would be an interesting process to collect drivers into a crowd-sourced bucket in the cloud and retrieve each other's drivers from there ... a risk of malware infection, but a neat idea nonetheless ... probably would need extensive testing through VirusTotal and blocking of anything with hits, though ...

... and the vendor of any front door to that cloud would have to admit what they are doing.

Thanks for exploring this and sharing.

Peter Blaise, there has been plenty of oppertunity for a correction of my deductions if they were fundimentally wrong... Technically it would be relatively simply WITH permission to do what Driver Magician does to make backups of existing drivers to zip files for later re-use on a fresh re-install to create a crowd sourced repositary BUT shuch re-constructed 3rd party driver packages could never be trusted even if tested on virustotal. Remember virustotal is only as good as existing patterns and if such a crowd sourced re-constituted driver repository was launched it would be an ideal candidate for a new malicious product that has no pre-exisitng patterns produced.

This is not an OK program! The software is not able to download drivers for programs that are not "up to date".
But he opens a web page, where you have to look for what you want!
I use "Advanced SystemCare Ultimate", which has the "Driver Booster" program, which works 10 times better than this!
I did remove!

Do you think we should trust our driver updates to a program that can't even get the registration process right?
Drivers are the lifeblood of our systems and this program obviously have problem configuring their own website and email setup to allow us to register the program. I think it is fortunate that it doesn't work, that way we don't screw up our drivers trusting this program.

Mario, two main reasons are:
1- It proposed to update 10 drivers. None of them needed update for sure. I double checked and saw it proposes unnecessary updates.
2- To see the software behaviour, I told it to update one of the drivers via producer. It led me Intel web page, not driver. I told it update via software itself, it led me to GOOGLE.

If you need advice for good (not perfect but good) driver update software, I use Snappy (https://sdi-tool.org/)

I prefer Snappy from a tech view, since it analyzes the computer then suggests the most optimized drivers. Plus when it comes to updating drivers, you shouldn't just update everything simply because it tells you there is an update, that can and will lead to issues.

Kyle, assuming the user has the skill to locate the CORRECT drivers for their configuration/OEM hardware once your software has claimed their perfectly functional drivers are outdated and then sends them off to some arbitary website your software consideres makes sense to try and find an updated driver that may or may not even exist!
What exactly is the algorithm you use to determine if a driver is outdated and a valid update IS available when you cannot actually link to the actual new drivers from your software?
