IObit's Driver Booster is a simple and straightforward tool which can scan your system for outdated drivers, then download and install and replacements with a click. 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 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. Thanks to a recently introduced 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. The main issue is the fact the free version is pretty limited in its scope.
Version 2 introduces a slew of new features, which are currently free to all users while it's in beta:
+ Completely redesigned and simplified user interface.
+ New Game drivers database for improving game performance.
+ Online database update feature to ensure drivers are always the latest.
+ Smart installation mode for distraction-free full-screen gaming.
+ Faster driver download speeds for Free and Pro users.
+ Significantly smaller installation and driver install packages.
+ Automatically scans newly connected devices.
+ Option to roll back drivers added.
+ New Rescue Center with improved restore options for rolling back.
