DriverMax Free Edition 7.29 scans, identifies, and updates your PC's hardware drivers automatically, one by one. It also backs up and restores drivers, keeps track of downloaded drivers, and identifies hardware without drivers. The freeware is limited to two driver downloads per day, at lower priority, and has other limitations compared to the Pro Edition.

Pros

Driver tune-up: A tune-up keeps your car running smoothly and reliably; updating your drivers does much the same for your PC. If updating drivers seems intimidating, DriverMax can take away some of the mystery.

Driver Ed: The freeware is fully functional, so the two-a-day limit is only an issue when you're updating drivers in batches. Nothing is stopping you from updating drivers the usual way (using the Device Manager), either.

Backup and restore: DriverMax can back up and restore your drivers, and it asks to create a Restore Point before installing new drivers.

Cons

Account required: You must create an online account to use DriverMax's Web-based tools. It's free, fairly unobtrusive, and relatively painless. But some users might care, so we're mentioning it.

Speed limits: Pro users have priority over free accounts in driver downloads. But a one-at-a-time, take-your-time approach to updating drivers usually means fewer crashes, conflicts, and blue screen errors.

Bottom Line

The free version of DriverMax has some limits compared to the Pro edition, but once you've updated all your drivers and set DriverMax on daily watch for new updates, you're unlikely to need to install more than two drivers at a time. For us, the most important thing is to know when updates are available, and DriverMax Free Edition does the job nicely.
