Sometimes, when we install a new device or upgrade our operating system, we need to update our hardware drivers. This can be a troublesome task if we don't have the installation disks,or if we need an entirely new driver for our new system.

This program performs a thorough scanning of your system and detects every hardware device you have installed. Also, it issues a report showing those drivers that need to be updated. The program can connect with the developer's huge database to download the most recent drivers for your system. You can backup and restore your old drivers in case the new ones cause any hardware malfunction. The program also lets you schedule periodic scans to keep your drivers up to date. It is also possible to set the folder where you want to store the new drivers, as well as the backups.

The shareware version only lets you scan the system to detect the outdated drivers, but does not allow downloading or installing the most recent versions. To overcome this limitation, you will need to purchase a license.
