Editors' review

Behind a slick interface, this program backs up all your PC's drivers in case you mess up something fierce. From registration to implementation, DriverMax works fast, runs smooth, and does even more than mere backing up.

When you run the app, it asks you if you'd like to run the trial version or apply for a registration key. The key is free, though, requiring only an e-mail address and your name. Once you've entered the key, the program interface appears, with slick button navigation: Driver Operations, Updates and Identification, and Popular Hardware. Mousing over one reveals more choices, so you can export your drivers, import drivers, or view an installed drivers report.

Updates lets you update both the DriverMax software and the drivers themselves, although as of this writing there is a warning label on the DriverMax Web site that downloads are not currently functioning. The program can also identify unknown hardware and point you in the direction of popular hardware options, pointing users to a compilation of statistics about different video cards and processors.

The strongest features, though, relate to driver backup and reinstalls. They function smoothly, offering users the option to back up all drivers or compile a customized list. Reinstalling an "accidentally" deleted driver was as pain-free as could be. This is a great utility tool that should appeal to newbies, advanced hackers, and everybody in between.

    "Beware. It often gives false information"

    August 28, 2014   |   By Vanillaman

    Version: DriverMax 7.38

    Pros

    It scans and find `possible' driver updates only.

    Cons

    Be extra careful what it recommends you to download. It cut off my Wireless connection and I have had to use the Ethernet cable ever since.

    Summary

    Dangerous and may cause damage to your computer.

    "John Asada"

    August 28, 2014   |   By John_Asada

    Version: DriverMax 7.38

    Pros

    The best among driver support software. I have been using this software for almost 6 years. Every time I format a computer I don't worry about the hardware driver, I just only need a internet connection and boom I complete my installation though I only have a free user account, I just patiently waiting for the download time and sometimes I took days for finish.

    Cons

    No bad comments. Only because I have a free user account and limited only to download one of a time. The problem with unsupported driver it happens before to me while using drivermax, but now it is more improve to the new version.

    Summary

    I'm dying to have a Pro account. I wish someday I would be a Pro User of Drivermax.
    I recommend this software to all my friends. Thank you drivermax for giving me convenience on searching drivers.

    By the way my

    "Awesome Tool For Anyone's Toolkit"

    August 28, 2014   |   By Rowan-Mor

    Version: DriverMax 7.38

    Pros

    - Comprehensive drive analysis is a must for first time OS installs!
    - Restore point creates peace of mind

    Cons

    - Free version is SLOW. I signed up for the 30 day subscription to Pro which vastly speeds up up the process.
    - Some drivers did not install the first time requiring extra steps
