Keeping your drivers up-to-date is always a good idea, but who has time to manually check for updates for each and every driver? Drivers For Free makes short work of this task, scanning for driver updates and installing them automatically. We think it's a great way to keep on top of this tedious but necessary job.

Drivers For Free starts by automatically detecting what kind of computer you're using, but that feature didn't work so well for us; the program thought we were using a Dell, but in reality we're running Windows on a Mac. That wasn't a huge problem, though, as we were able to use the "My Computer Is Custom Built" option instead to find our drivers. Drivers For Free quickly scanned our system and returned four drivers that were out of date: for our audio controller, our printer, our PCI bridge, and our universal host controller. Next to the first two drivers were buttons allowing us to view them on the Web, while the other two showed buttons allowing us to download them directly. Clicking on any of the buttons brought up a screen asking us to log in with either our Drivers For Free account or our Facebook account. We opted to create a Drivers For Free account, which required us to supply an e-mail address. Once that was done, we were able to quickly download and install each driver without any issues. Drivers For Free doesn't come with a Help file, but we didn't find that to be a big drawback; if you're the sort of person who knows what drivers are and why they need to be updated, you probably won't have any trouble using it. Overall, we found Drivers For Free to be a no-fuss way to keep our drivers up to date, and we recommend it.

Drivers For Free installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly.
