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IObit's Driver Booster 2 scans your PC for out-of-date drivers and updates them for you.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Alarming: Warnings about the risks posed by some out-of-date drivers seemed a bit dramatic.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