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IObit's Driver Booster 2 scans your PC for out-of-date drivers and updates them for you.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Alarming: Warnings about the risks posed by some out-of-date drivers seemed a bit dramatic.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

    "Be Careful"

    Version: Driver Booster 2 2.0.2.220

    Pros

    Seems to find all of the Drivers

    Cons

    Always installs the latest version. The problem is that might not be the most appropriate version for your System and/or Configuration.

    Summary

    I totally agree with a previous commenter, use only to view latest updates and then check each one to see if it is the most appropriate for your system.
