Driver Radar Pro is a free tool which enables you to selectively block or allow the installation of kernel mode drivers on a 32-bit Windows system.

So what? Once configured the program can help you lock down a PC to make sure that only the whitelisted third-party and system drivers are able to run. And if you encounter any malware which tries to infect your system via a driver of its own, then it'll automatically be blocked, keeping you safe.

There are complications, in particular that you need to whitelist drivers which will be allowed to run. Get this wrong and you could end up blocking drivers that are necessary for your system to function, which will cause you all kinds of headaches. And is probably why the authors warn that the software should only be installed by "experienced users".

If you want to take in-depth control of the drivers which can be installed on your system, though, Driver Radar Pro does provide you with several options which you won't find anywhere else. And it's also compact and lightweight, keeping you safe while requiring the minimum of system resources.

Version 1.7 brings:
+ Added DEP and ASLR to main exe and service
+ Added more safe trusted vendors\signers
+ Fixed adding of some drivers (DLL) to the whitelist
+ Fixed adding of Signers that are blank
+ Minor fixes and optimizations

Verdict:

Driver Radar Pro is an expert-level tool which needs to be used with extreme care if you're to avoid running into major problems. If you know what you're doing, though, it provides a relatively straightforward way to ensure only approved drivers run on your system.
