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.

    Version: DriverMax 7.35

    Pros

    Like the new free server constantly working on the free version.Notice the interface always changing meaning they are constantly trying to improve our media experience.@ Thumbs up on the effort.

    Cons

    Slow downloads on free version,I work on pc off and on restore feature on drivers sometimes you have to restore certain drivers in order or some fail even when they were previously working on pc.Maybe a order of importance on restore of drivers after putting on new op system

    Summary

    I constantly see Driver Max changing there interface learning like a Pc all the time the faults and errors of the growing media age. I am a dedicated Driver Max fan and constantly use it and refer it cause they are dedicated to finding out what make a pc work right and what makes it go wrong... so you get the best of both worlds knowing they are giving you the best drivers for your media products. 2 THUMBS UP DRIVERMAX KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!
