"IOBIT Drive Booster 3 Killed two of my USB ports"

May 13, 2016  |  By willofarm

2016-05-13 19:33:31  |  By willofarm

 |  Version: Driver Booster 3 3.3.1.749

Pros

Updated some drivers

Cons

Killed two of my USB ports (My most used ones). I have tried everything and can't get them to work, not even in safe mode.

Summary

I was reluctant to use this for the first time after reading a couple recent reviews with less than stellar results, but my computer was getting old and slow and thought I'd risk it. I so wish I didn't now. It started it's program and scanned and updated drivers and everything seemed to work great, then I went to plug in my wireless mouse on my laptop and the USB drive didn't recognize my mouse like it has 100's of time before. I then tried the other USB on the other side and same thing. Dead! I tried a couple thumb drives too to make sure it wasn't my mouse. Same, nothing. This program disabled two of my USB ports and have tried everything to get them back. I've uninstalled them all and reinstalled them all, had multiple IT techs at my work look at it and they can't get them working either. They said they have never seen a program kill a USB port before, but congratulation Iobit you've done it! The only saving grace is I have 4 USB ports on my laptop and the other two still work (thank goodness). Otherwise I'd be upset beyond belief.

Pros

it was easy to uninstall

Cons

I needed drivers for a laptop i was working on a acer 5000 series laptop and it came back with only 3 drivers after a clean install of windows 7. Now im not endorsing a product but i then tried slim drivers and they found every driver i needed. How could booster miss such drivers as niivida? Never again will i use this product again

Summary

"Great tool, must-have on all my pcs since I found it"

April 09, 2016  |  By Himeko7

2016-04-09 16:48:14  |  By Himeko7

 |  Version: Driver Booster 3 3.3.1.749

Pros

I'm usually wary of this kind of "booster" apps, but this is a very solid app, well maintained by a large company behind it and no adware on install besides some free e-book offer or so. The free version has very few limitations, mostly just limiting you to update drivers 1 by 1 rather than all in a batch. Pro version lets you backup the drivers before update and downloads them faster. I love specially an extra tool it has which removes old unused drivers "clean unplugged devices". Tried a few of this kind of driver udpater apps, wouldn't use any other.

Cons

Nothing bad to say about it, maybe the payment model, I'd rather a reasonable one-time fee than paying a yearly sub.

"Once again IOBit hits the ball out of the park"

March 20, 2016  |  By Tony Silver

2016-03-20 19:45:53  |  By Tony Silver

 |  Version: Driver Booster 3 3.2.0.696

Pros

No crashes, no app freezes, and so far,
dialog boxes that make sense.

Cons

Creation of a Restore Point for every new driver will slow system if many are update in one session.

Summary

I've recommended IOBit to anyone asking my advice!

"Doesn't work. Did more harm than good."

March 10, 2016  |  By marilanna

2016-03-10 10:06:32  |  By marilanna

 |  Version: Driver Booster 3 3.2.0.696

Pros

Free, eeasy to use.

Cons

It didn't fix my drivers for audio or touch screen capability. I ended up finding the hotfix on the ASUS site instead. A few weeks later, the app pops up with a notification to update 13 outdated drivers. Upon installing those drivers, my touch screen and sound stopped working again and I had to system restore to before the update

Summary

Useless.

"this program is awsome."

 |  Version: Driver Booster 3 3.2.0.696

Pros

just download Advanced system care. Why? because this program is all in one. After windows installation this program helps you to get all drivers and defrag disk. This helps you to keep clean PC.

Cons

bnbnbnbnbnbn

Summary

if windows could't find your drivers, this program can do this.

2016-03-03 12:10:48  |  By Vinny42

 |  Version: Driver Booster 3 3.2.0.696

Pros

The free version was install with ASC version 9 PRO. My "very old" manufacturers driver worked and stopped when Driver Booster updated and got an error message "High definition not plugged in". Reinstalled the "very old" driver and sound is back.

For me, no pros.

Cons

None that I noticed.

Summary

Uninstalled it and would not use it again.
