NirSoft's DriverView displays your system's drivers in an informative list view. This free tool is invaluable for troubleshooting system problems, updating drivers, installing and uninstalling hardware, and all the other issues that always seem to show up just when you think you've got your machine running on all cylinders. Better yet, DriverView is available in separate downloads for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows.

Why does that matter? For starters, 64-bit Windows has performance advantages, such as handling more RAM. Most 32-bit apps will run in 64-bit Windows, but not vice versa. Also, drivers designed for 32-bit Windows won't run in 64-bit Windows. So the best way to ensure stable, accurate driver maintenance in a 64-bit system is with a 64-bit utility. We tried the 64-bit download of DriverView in Windows 7 Home Premium SP1.

DriverView bears a family resemblance to NirSoft's other freeware utilities, with a detailed list view, a basic but useful toolbar, and options such as dragging, adding, and removing column headings; adding grid lines; and generating HTML reports. The list view displayed our test system's drivers, more than 160 of them. The headings gave a lot of useful information, such as company, product name, address, version, date, and file name (including location). We could open any driver's Properties and even search Google directly from the File menu.

The Help file is really just an About file with a link to the developer's site, but the product's Web page offers documentation, version history, language versions, and other information, so if you need assistance using this simple tool, check there first. As always, exercise caution and good judgment when making changes to your system, even changes as simple as driver updates.

This tool is exactly what we've needed time and again when we've needed to reassociate a driver and device after something happens such as Windows suddenly using a default driver instead of the product driver. It's great for quickly tracking down those drivers that end up installed in odd corners, too. We've tried many of NirSoft's useful apps, and DriverView is one of the best yet. For 64-bit Windows, it's essential.
