Editors' review

The process of backing up and restoring numerous drivers is fairly simple with this application. Generally, we like to see a setup wizard for easy configuration, but this one isn't any different from its manual configuration. On the other hand, Driver Genius Professional only has a few features so its straightforward interface is easy to use. With it, you can backup, restore, and uninstall drivers. The program's functions are available in six languages for managing your currently installed device drivers and available updates, although you can't download drivers in this version. You can opt to store your backup folder as a ZIP or EXE; however, we discovered that restoration is limited to video and network cards in the trial version. Nevertheless, anyone looking to backup all or parts of their system should give this 15-day trial utility a try.

    "Waste of Money/Time/Support Stinks"

    March 10, 2014   |   By Tajatech

    Version: Driver Genius


    It may have a few more drivers than free ones


    Everything else. Cost is to great for the amount of updated drivers produced in one year.


    All in all no better than the free versions of others. I paid for the program only to find out i had 3 updates for my system in an entire year and they were for network cards or usb devices. They are also rude as all get out when you ask a question. Shortly after i got the program someone stole my code that makes it go. I had no idea that had happened. I found out it had been installed on some 10 machines without my knowledge. Of course they shut the program off but i was then left with a program i paid for that didn't work. When i contacted them regarding the matter i basically got chewed out for something i had no control over. Very disappointing customer service. I do not know who hacked my network and stole it or if someone just figured out a crack or hack for it but i am out 30.00 for a program that never found anything anyways. So avoid it and go with slimdrivers free edition you will get just as many but you will not have had to pay for it. So its your choice. Not every driver on your machine requires updating. If your system is running and stable don't waste your time with this company and their program.
