Editors' Review

Your computer system's drivers tell your hardware and software what to do. Without up-to-date drivers, your system won't perform to its full potential and might even experience problems. Obsolete drivers can sometimes even leave vulnerabilities and security holes that have been fixed in updates that you don't have, and why? Because updating drivers is a nuisance falling somewhere between an oil change and a dentist's appointment, that's why; and it's worse still if you're the sort of user who depends on a PC yet has no earthly idea what goes on inside the box (and like it that way, thank you very much). So, get DriverMax from Innovative Solutions. This free cloud-based tool helps you download and install up-to-date drivers practically painlessly. You'll need to create a free user account to make DriverMax work.

DriverMax scanned our PC during setup and displayed our drivers in a compact view, with up-to-date drivers marked in green and those with available updates in red. The scan found eight available updates. We simply had to click Download to get the drivers, select More Options to view an information box with links to other drivers and options, or click a Help icon to access related information. The drivers all come from a variety of sites and often download and install in different ways, too, so the ability to view other available drivers and documentation can make a big difference.

When you download a driver in the free version of DriverMax, a Web page opens with information and a download link. The Pro upgrade downloads drivers directly within the DriverMax interface, but we don't have a problem with an intermediate step since "slow, steady, and careful" (and plenty of info) add up to trouble-free upgrades and smooth sailing from then on. Of course, you can also use DriverMax as a guide for updating drivers individually using their own programs (where available). DriverMax also backs up and restores your drivers (backup = good). DriverMax proved superior to similar driver maintenance tools we've tried, with a quality look and feel; we recommend it for users of all skill levels.

"Decent program with good results."

July 20, 2011  |  By Urantiason

 |  Version: DriverMax 5.92

Pros

DriverMax is not a very intuitive program. You must read instructions carefully or else spend time staring at the monitor screen. But, it works and does a decent job getting the proper drivers to your system.

Cons

DriverMax only allows you to get two (2) drivers a day, which makes updating your system a tedious process that takes days to complete with the Free Version.

Summary

Good program with an extended driver installation process that takes days to complete. I was updating a Dell and found DriverMax the lesser of two evils when faced with going to the Dell website.

July 17, 2011  |  By srprobe2

 |  Version: DriverMax 5.92

Pros

There aren't any..............

Cons

Every time I want to download a driver, they say "Pausing for 60 minutes" so I checked to see why-the file was corrupted so I uninstalled it for the second time....

Summary

Don't bother with this software whatever you do :(

"Fails miserably"

July 16, 2011  |  By Eaglecomander

 |  Version: DriverMax 5.92

Pros

this program has no pros

Cons

If downloading new program version any drivers you have already downloaded will be deleted (so you wasted your time downloading them in the first place) The program is always a startup item in your pragrams.

Summary

I downloaded the new version after I had downloaded some drivers for my computer (but hadnt installed them yet) I thought the new version would do a better install but in the course of installing new version the drivers were deleted the site would not let me download any more because I had reached the limit as a free user I already had the drivers downloaded that didnt matter. If the drivers I was trying to get were new I could uderstand but I already had downloaded them . I also noticed some of the drivers they had were wrong for my computer despite what the agent said.

"BEWARE of BAD BUSINESS"

July 15, 2011  |  By donnadunaway

 |  Version: DriverMax 5.92

Pros

honestly, I didnt get a chance to try it out. My computer crashed, and had to install a new OS (ubuntu). I? sure it? a lovely program.

Cons

No matter how great the product might be...if ethics is an issue with their business..I want no part of them.

Summary

my issue is that after the 30 day trial which turned out to be more like 2 weeks, my bank account was charged. I would have contacted them to cancel, had they used the same calendar as I did, and would contact them now to make sure the bill does not reoccur again in their next 30 days, but...I cant log in to their billing site with the information I gave them. They sent a billing (no reply) confirmation to the same e-mail address they wont recognize. BAD BUSINESS FOLKS!
