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IObit's Driver Booster 2 scans your PC for out-of-date drivers and updates them for you.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Alarming: Warnings about the risks posed by some out-of-date drivers seemed a bit dramatic.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.

"Works fast and flawlessly!!"

July 17, 2015  |  By jimd121

 |  Version: Driver Booster 2 2.4.0.19

Pros

I have 6 different computers I run Driver Booster on, and it works perfectly on all of them. It quickly and accurately downloads and installs the correct drivers for each different system.

Cons

Wish it would provide a little more information about each recommended update.

Summary

I've tried other driver update software and each time they downloaded incorrect or incompatible drivers and even tried to download and install non-driver software!
IObit Driver Booster gets it right every time! Doesn't seem matter whether you have Intel or AMD or what make your components are, Driver Booster finds the right dirvers for your hardware.

"Great Program"

July 14, 2015  |  By Dr TomG

 |  Version: Driver Booster 2 2.4.0.19

Pros

I just bought another computer. The first thing I downloaded was driver booster. I love this program. It is so well worth it. I have had it on the last two computers that I have had and it has been one of the best programs that I have. On this one it found 6 old drivers and updated them all. And on the first one it found 17 old drivers. This program made both computers run must faster and better. Fantastic. If I was able to I would purchase a lifetime use of this program to make sure that my computer was up to date. I love this program.

Cons

Runs smoothly and easily in the background and keeps everything up to date.

Summary

This program is well worth the effort.
