Don't do it.

I don't think people should be posting this borderline ad-ware / scam ware.

I've encountered so many systems slowed down or having other issues due to "optimiser" / "booster" / "cleaner" software of various descriptions. And iobit software definitely featured in that somewhere along the way.

This is neither a optimiser or cleaner, it simply updates your device drivers. And before the PC tech experts jump on yes Windows does have a windows update but it is terrible.

Driver booster I've found useful over time, it's not something I keep installed just if I need it to look at something. Great for finding drivers for older bits and bobs, mostly redundant with newer stuff.

I agree, while it's kinda good at updating drivers, I usually run it, then uninstall and do a full malware scan after it has been on my system.

BTW, if you want a good driver installer, Snappy Drive installer is pretty good, portable, uses a local driver store and is completely free.

Snappy Driver Installer _is_ a program that has proven itself to be quite useful and safe. Keeping in mind that it might install a driver that isn't quite right on an older OS and cause blue screening, but that's really down to the driver. I would still use that over this.
Dont waste your money, Bar Windows XP your PC has all this already or can get FOC from Microsoft
Good lord I thought these things died out years ago.
The amount I times I visited customers' homes to remove this type of crapware I can't imagine.

There are VERY few cases where you need to update drivers unless there is a bug. If it works, leave it alone. Who defrags nowadays? SSD's don't need it.
Old start menu? Oh for gods sake... STILL clinging to Win 7 menu??!!
Sooo many things wrong with these things...

That's incorrect, Windows supplies basic drivers, many of which will be out of date.

Certain hardware won't have a windows driver preinstalled either, so software like this can come in handy instead of manually searching hardware ID's if you have multiple missing or out of date drivers.

I never bother with the driver updaters but the uninstaller is decent.

Not interested in a subscription though.

The only thing I've noticed with this is you're best to do a custom install when installing it, otherwise it'll install bundled software, can't remember what exactly but it's a well known piece of software, you just have to opt out

IMO you should use it once then uninstall as it won't be needed again

Hmmm not sure your mouse drivers are going to cause a massive issue if out of date nor cause any security concerns.. Sounds like clutching at straws to prove it's worth. Most devices that benefit from regular driver updates are either done by windows or via the software that runs the device supplied with it (i.e. Graphics cards, ASIO sound cards, etc).

Sdi is good program but it was intended to be used by it technicians or it enthusiasts. SDI can break your system, also many times it is trying to install less optimal drivers claiming that they are better ones...
I have been using Driver Booster 7 Pro ( got key from a giveaway promo ) and I love it. It finds the best driver for your hardware and is better than going to manufacturer's website and downloading outdated drivers for their site.

Windows update provides bearbone drivers with very slow release cycle. It is Ideal for fresh systems but most of the time drivers are outdated by months.

Windows has enough generic mouse drivers built in that I'd be confident plugging any USB mouse into a windows based PC without specific drivers applied. How else would you get the driver on in the first place on a desktop?

I dont want to carry a mouse around with my laptop on the off chance my mouse driver should stop working or I would have bought a PC.

The images are showing that my Laptop has an old driver installed, windows didnt show an update showing me a newer driver but driver booster did. Its really not a case of me having a mouse to hand if my driver stop working is it?

For a basic mouse yes, but a lot of laptops can use a specialised driver otherwise you'll get slow movement (low dpi) or missing gestures etc

Que? You were the one that mentioned mouse drivers, implying a mouse.
Again, Windows has built in pointing device (trackpad) drivers built in.
Track pads don't require updating very often, if ever.

Yes the software found a newer driver, however it was far from a critical requirement and for advice that wouldn't normally monitor drivers for itself, as it's pointless.

Additionally, most laptop manufacturers, include their own firmware and driver update checker, even some motherboard manufacturers too. Further making this software less relevant.
For me good disk defrag is handy when I am selling budget gaming computers with some games preloaded, where main storage is still HDD and full defrag and file optimisation can make a big difference

It was the driver that was showing at the time so used it as an example. My first PC ran windows 3.1 so i can do this all day with you. I know people like to mention their customers etc on this site to look smart but owning a pc at home is like owning a washer machine. Everybody learns how to use them with or without an education

I started off like you with windows 3.1, I have to smile now when the smart uns go on about customers and try to make out they are clever. Lets put it like this, in the days of windows 3.1, you had to know about dos commands etc, when building a computer you had to set bus speed, cpu voltage, you had to install drivers etc. Now a days, you put memory in, drop cpu in place, plug in ssd, there is no going into the bios or jumpers on the drive or board to configure. Even easier is installing windows, a kid of 8 could do this now lol.

SDI can be made very easy to use with a couple tick boxes, sure it's not as idiot proof but it's not exactly rocket science.

Any driver updater can break your system if it installs the wrong driver, Driver Booster has been known to do that along with most other driver updater software. None of them are infallible.

Yes they had, all the cases where big and that cream colour, I recall nearly everyone I knew purchased one of my built machines, used to love going to the computer shows. In the early days there was no built in graphics or sound card, the fax modem was 56k. Good days and you had to know a bit about what you where doing, now all the skill has gone.

I'm not saying that driver booster is better than SDI, it's opposite. Driver Booster is bad product and some of oem specific drivers are hit or miss with super high miss rate.

Only once driver booster worked for me better than SDI and it was on linx 1010b tablet
