Editors' Review

DriverMax Free Edition 7.29 scans, identifies, and updates your PC's hardware drivers automatically, one by one. It also backs up and restores drivers, keeps track of downloaded drivers, and identifies hardware without drivers. The freeware is limited to two driver downloads per day, at lower priority, and has other limitations compared to the Pro Edition.

Pros

Driver tune-up: A tune-up keeps your car running smoothly and reliably; updating your drivers does much the same for your PC. If updating drivers seems intimidating, DriverMax can take away some of the mystery.

Driver Ed: The freeware is fully functional, so the two-a-day limit is only an issue when you're updating drivers in batches. Nothing is stopping you from updating drivers the usual way (using the Device Manager), either.

Backup and restore: DriverMax can back up and restore your drivers, and it asks to create a Restore Point before installing new drivers.

Cons

Account required: You must create an online account to use DriverMax's Web-based tools. It's free, fairly unobtrusive, and relatively painless. But some users might care, so we're mentioning it.

Speed limits: Pro users have priority over free accounts in driver downloads. But a one-at-a-time, take-your-time approach to updating drivers usually means fewer crashes, conflicts, and blue screen errors.

Bottom Line

The free version of DriverMax has some limits compared to the Pro edition, but once you've updated all your drivers and set DriverMax on daily watch for new updates, you're unlikely to need to install more than two drivers at a time. For us, the most important thing is to know when updates are available, and DriverMax Free Edition does the job nicely.

"Software update immediately Drivers"

March 24, 2015  |  By nadavossia

 |  Version: DriverMax 7.53

Pros

Allows drivers to update old drivers including hardware detects when the driver is missing most computer software indicates exactly which driver is missing comfortable and friendly even inexperienced people can undo the driver installation if the installation is not successful

Cons

Free version allows to update only 2 drivers on do not always recognize the severity accurately and sometimes updating driver not suitable, for example, I have a wireless keyboard and mouse Microsoft software updated my driver does not fit that made the keyboard and mouse stop working because I could not uninstall the update I had to withdraw Keyboard with wire and then my update. When I downloaded the 2 updates the software the same day the next day asking me to scan your computer you should check for updates it finds an update but it asks too soon before undergoing 24 hours and the software does not register what time I will be able to download the updates again

Summary

Good software just wish she was not completely free and can be downloaded only 2 drivers each day helps in finding Drivers Drivers computer does not even recognize what product they belong
