"Good product but unfortunately nagware"

January 28, 2016  |  By howardferns

2016-01-28 14:57:59  |  By howardferns

 |  Version: Driver Booster 3 3.2.0.696

Pros

Looking for ways to improve my 6-years-old XP netbook, I came across this freeware. It found no fewer than 17 out of date drivers. I was able to delete 2 of these which were for the webcam I don't use, and I updated the remaining 15. Someone wrote that it was slow, I read somewhere, so I thought it was doing one at a time, but no, they were all done after just a couple of minutes.

Cons

Although I felt Driver Booster did a good job, it is spoiled by being unashamed nagware. Everything about the UI is pushing the upgrade.
It is also set to update automatically, with no way I could find of disabling this. I would very much have liked to, because even though the program wasn't running, a screen was appearing before anything else when I booted up, telling me an update is available. Not only that, but there's a sneaky little ticked box in the lower left corner to install Advanced System Care, too.
Considering I didn't expect to use Driver Booster again for quite some time, I felt this was a damn nuisance, and my best way of dealing with it was to uninstall the software. If Iobit think users are going to put up with this sort of thing, then they need to think again.

"Gave me more issues"

January 18, 2016  |  By frishter

2016-01-18 21:17:00  |  By frishter

 |  Version: Driver Booster 3 3.1.1.457

Pros

Convenience... if it worked

Cons

Increased the amount of BSODs I received from bad drivers.

Summary

Given that this application was rated fairly highly, was mentioned on a couple of other websites in the past, and has a fair share of downloads, I thought I'd give this application a try after receiving an about monthly BSOD to see if maybe it could sort something out that I couldn't pin down. Unfortunately my BSODs became a lot more frequent. So if you want to upgrade your drivers, just check the manufacturers website (or the maker of your motherboard for self builds) plus official sites for other updates like your gpu drivers etc.

Managed to reset and get my drivers the intended way, running more smoothly now.
