Driver Magician
Easily update, back up and restore your drivers

Buggy drivers are a major cause of crashes, performance issues and many other PC problems, so it's a very good idea to keep yours up-to-date. You could do this manually, but who has the time to browse endless hardware websites, looking for upgrades? Fortunately that really isn't necessary, because Driver Magician will quickly do all the hard work for you.

When you first launch the program it will scan your PC, checking for installed drivers. Once the process is finished, click Update and it'll compare your driver versions with an online database, then let you know which ones have updates available.

In theory you can then just click a Download button to grab whatever might be available. In practice, though, the trial version will only show you updates: you can't download them until you've purchased a program licence.

Driver Magician does have another function that could prove very useful, though - it's able to back up your drivers to a folder, ZIP or self-extracting EXE file. This could be a life-saver if your system crashes and you need to reinstall Windows, as you won't have to spend forever looking for driver discs or downloading upgrades. Just point the operating system at your backup folder and your drivers will be installed within minutes.

Version 5.0 changes:

- Some minor tweaks

Verdict:

A very simple way to locate driver updates. Beware, though - the trial version shows you available upgrades but won't let you download them

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.31

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.31

• Add color filters to your media. Just capture or select a photo, video, or GIF, and swipe up to pick a filter.
• When you receive multiple photos from the same sender in a row, they'll now be grouped together as an album.
• New reply shortcut: simply swipe right in any message to quickly reply to it.
