Driver Booster 1.5.0.60
Are your drivers up-to-date? Here's how to find out

IObit's Driver Booster is a simple and straightforward tool which can scan your system for outdated drivers, then download and install and replacements with a click.

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 just 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 All" and Driver Booster will download and launch each update for you. You'll have to manually work through each installer, but this doesn't take long, and we had our test system fully updated in just a few minutes.

You don't get the bonus features here that you'll sometimes find in similar programs. There's no list of your hardware or installed drivers, for instance. No backup option. No extras at all, really.

Driver Booster's default settings are a little annoying, too, with the program setting itself up to launch when Windows starts, yet only check for updates once a week. Fortunately this is easy to change, but it shouldn't be necessary: if Driver Booster just set up a scheduled task then it wouldn't have to run in the background at all.

Verdict:

While a little short on features, Driver Booster is fast and very easy to use, an extremely simple way to keep your drivers up-to-date

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
