Editors' Review

+

IObit's Driver Booster 2 scans your PC for out-of-date drivers and updates them for you. It can scan automatically when you launch a program or when you connect a device. Or you can set fixed intervals for scans and update drivers one by one or all at once with a single click. Updates to Driver Booster 2 include faster downloads and an all-new user interface with skins.

Pros

Safe: Driver Booster 2 can back up drivers, create restore points before installing updates, and show only WHQL-tested drivers. The Ignored list comes in handy when older PCs and components can't use the latest drivers.

Fast and easy: In our tests, Driver Booster 2 downloaded and installed drivers much faster than we could -- assuming we would even have been aware of all the updates our system needed.

Reboot: Not sure if or when to reboot when updating drivers? Driver Booster 2 will tell you and do it automatically, if you tell it to in the program's settings.

Game-centric: Driver Booster 2 can identify gaming components and tweak drivers for improved gaming performance.

Cons

Alarming: Warnings about the risks posed by some out-of-date drivers seemed a bit dramatic.

Double-check: Some drivers that had downloaded and installed as a package required updating individually, even after rebooting. Fortunately, rescanning is fast and easy.

Bottom Line

Less-experienced users may get the greatest benefit from IObit Driver Booster 2, but even advanced users will appreciate its ability to update system drivers with the greatest of ease.

"Will not connect to it's driver database."

November 27, 2014  |  By ronc2

 |  Version: Driver Booster 2 2.0.3.69

Pros

Nothing pro yet

Cons

It takes a very long time to scan, but after the scan a message appears "unable to connect to Driver Booster data base" and gives 3 suggestions as to what might solve the problem: I followed the suggestions, allowed Driver Booster through my firewall, etc, scanned again -- for a VERY long time -- on completion of scan got the same message, the damfool thing could not connect to it's driver database, so nothing was changed, nothing repaired. There is no Help option, other than the aforementioned message suggesting the three items that might be at fault, but after correcting those three items, Driver Booster STILL CANNOT CONNECT! I've wasted about four hours of my morning fooling with this thing and gotten nowhere. My pc still has a crashing problem connecting to a driver but I can't discover which driver it might be, which is why I installed Driver Booster in the first place. What good is it if it can't connect to it's own home base?
I'd love to hear from Iobit about this.

Summary

I have nothing good to say about software that won't perform as advertised, although I use other Iolbit products with no issues, this Driver Booster needs much more work to be truly useful.

"Best Free Product for a long, long, time."

November 24, 2014  |  By veramuchso

 |  Version: Driver Booster 2 2.0.3.69

Pros

Does it all. Simply install, click scan, and in a few minutes fully updated and raring to go.

Cons

I don't have any. I wonder if the folks who are having problems with it are all using Win 7. I have 8.1 and though I'm not it's biggest fan it works perfectly. Something to consider maybe.

Summary

I don't often say this but if it continues to work perfectly in the long term I'm seriously considering buying the pro version. Not because I think I'll get a better product but just as a big thanx for sharing great software for free. WTG IO

 |  Version: Driver Booster 2 2.0.3.69

Pros

It looked good when it started processing

Drive Booster 2 popped on without notice, looked like a good product.

"Truly amazing piece of software!"

November 15, 2014  |  By GenericPsycho

 |  Version: Driver Booster 2 2.0.3.69

Pros

Easy to use.
Fast.
Free to use.
(Not just a free scan)
Finds the drivers you might of missed.

Cons

Not enough people use this software.

Summary

I have been looking for an easier way to update drivers for some time now. I have tried many different applications, but you always get a "free" scan then you are asked to buy the software. I was ecstatic when I installed this software, pressed scan, and got the drivers i wanted in seconds. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

"Tried it 3 times, had to do a restore 3 times"

November 14, 2014  |  By salazarjohn

 |  Version: Driver Booster 2 2.0.3.69

Pros

creates a restore point before updating your driver

Cons

loads bad driver, locks up computer and causes BSOD

Summary

I use Advanced system care. This downloads as part of that. I have tried it now 3 different times on two computers and every time I end up having to do a system restore. Not difficult but a pain in the butt.

"Excellent product."

November 11, 2014  |  By Jesus_Died_4_Me

 |  Version: Driver Booster 2 2.0.3.69

Pros

Update drivers quickly and efficiently and also other related items like Adobe flash and such.

Cons

Sometimes you have to ignore some drivers for older computers--it really is a manufacturer's fault, like nVidia drivers that supposed to work but they don't. I use older nVidia driver on an old laptop because newer one doesn't work and doesn't install. It's not Driver Booster's fault. I get the same problem even if I download directly from nVidia and try to install.

Summary

Excellent product. I highly recommend it but, as is supposed to be your practice with such programs, always backup first. Latest versions are the best because they do more than just drivers but update what they call 'gaming software' as well, which is flash and such. Again, I highly recommend it. Like iObit AdvancedSystem Care utility, this product rocks.
