IObit has released IObit Driver Booster 3, the latest edition of its one-stop driver updater for Windows XP and later.
A larger database – 200,000 drivers and counting – means the program can handle even more hardware.
The Game Component Database has been expanded to cover even more system essentials, including VC Runtime 2008, VC Runtime 2010, and VC Runtime 2012.
The $22.95 Pro version now automatically backs up drivers before they’re installed. (The free version has some protection with an option to create a system restore point.)
Another Pro-only feature sees drivers downloaded when your system is idle, which IObit says can halve update times.
A new “Device Fix” feature may improve system troubleshooting by detecting missing and faulty drivers.
Both the free and Pro editions also have an improved update engine, with full support for Windows 10, and are accessed via a brand new interface.
IObit Driver Booster 3 is available now as a free package for Windows XP and later.
