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IObit's Driver Booster 2 scans your PC for out-of-date drivers and updates them for you.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Alarming: Warnings about the risks posed by some out-of-date drivers seemed a bit dramatic.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

"Best Driver Updater Out There!"

August 26, 2015  |  By michael.pawelski.3

 |  Version: Driver Booster 2 2.4.0.19

Pros

-Free Fully Functional Driver Updater
-Easy to Install
-Easy to Use
-Saves Valuable Time (gone are the days of navigating to every components site to download your drivers)
-It Does What It Promises To Do

Cons

-You Didn't Download This Program Yet!

Summary

I just wanted to say that I have used this program since it's inception. I was one of the first to beta test Driver Booster before it first came out. I am extremely happy to see them continue to improve upon this great piece of software. I saw that they are trying to get onto the STEAM platform which I think is a wonderful idea. The more people that know about this software the better. I have used this on every system in my house and have recommended it to family and friends. Keep up the great work. Never lose focus.

Sincerely,
Michael

"This is a kick-butt free program."

August 25, 2015  |  By swanjame

 |  Version: Driver Booster 2 2.4.0.19

Pros

This program really finds all of your outdated drivers and lets you replace them in a controlled manner,

Cons

The download speed for the free version is limited; if you are patient you can update them all but you will probably want the Pro (paid) upgrade.

Summary

I liked the free version so much that I upgraded right away to the pro (paid) version.

"Fast functional easy to use and navigate!!!"

August 23, 2015  |  By Acheles187

 |  Version: Driver Booster 2 2.4.0.19

Pros

i love the new style of the driver booster 3 beta because the fact it shows you every single driver that needs or is updated so you can easily cross reference every single one and verify the accuracy plus the layout is more inviting to a tech side with its ease and simplistic layout.to save you precious time diagnosing the drivers.

Cons

the feedback system currently errors out trying to submit any review so you have to use an outside mail setup to submit until the error is patched.

August 16, 2015  |  By hmzkld

 |  Version: Driver Booster 2 2.4.0.19

Pros

I have 2 notebooks, one runs windows 7 and the other runs windows 8.1. And every time i run Driver Booster 2 on them, it downloads and installs the correct drivers for each system.

Cons

I can't think of any cons really. Driver Booster is just perfect.

Summary

When it comes to updating my drivers for my hardware, Driver Booster will always be the one and only software i will use.

"Locked up my key board"

August 04, 2015

 |  Version: Driver Booster 2 2.4.0.19

Pros

Found lots of things to fix.

Cons

Locked up my keyboard, I had to go back to an earlier version of of my system (without using the keyboard) actually I booted from a system disk then the keyboard worked. If you still want to try it, register first then they will give you a free upgrade to a version that permits you going back.

Summary

I ended up sing the program that AVG has recently released. It cost $29.95 but did not lock anything up. It also was going to the vender's sites to get the updates rather than from cash they had themselves. That also made me feel better. Drive Booster still found lots of problems to fix after AVG was done but I was not going to let it touch my system.
