    Pros

    Fast scan and gets good results, easy to use but at the same time gives you lots of different ways to Update your drivers.

    Cons

    Takes time to install all of the drivers.

    It does what it says it will do and no surprises You always seem to get with any free software. If I can in the future I will positively upgrade to the pro version of this software!!!

    "Really helps sorting out old drivers"

    February 11, 2013  |   By bkernst

    Version: SlimDrivers 2.2.27042

    Pros

    Really easy to use and the interface does not require an expert to understand. The application also does restore points by default, but that can be disabled. There is a drivers backup feature provided as well.

    Cons

    Free version does not have full automatic updating, but that is not a major issue. The application window sometimes ends up on top of the installer window and then it is not always obvious that some button on the installer window has to be clicked.

    Summary

    Has not failed me yet and I have been using this application for more than one year. SlimDrivers helped me hunt down those drivers that were installed with the hardware and turned out to be six years old. The colour indicator really helped and now I know at least what specific drivers I actually have to use for the onboard devices. Restore points help, but I never yet had to actually restore a driver to a previous version.

    "Brilliant - if only all software were the same."

    February 11, 2013  |   By Larboulois

    Version: SlimDrivers 2.2.27042

    Pros

    I've just added again to a new computer and it installed easily. It's a doddle to set up and just ticks away in the background. I run AVG PC TuneUp as well (another good program though not free) and although AVG constantly reports registry issues etc. never once has it reported a problem with defragmentation.

    Cons

    None - and I've been running this program on different computers (all Windows 7) for over a year. It's gradually replaced my paid (by Ashampoo) Defrag 3, though this too is a good (low cost) program.

    Summary

    It's free, it's brilliant, you shouldn't be without it.
