Buried deep within the old Control Panel, Windows 10 still has the option to avoid installing drivers as part of Windows Updates.
For most of us, the drivers are a welcome addition to keep things running smoothly, but the tinkerers out there like things a certain way, and updating a driver might change previously stored settings. Right click the Start button and select Control Panel.
And all drivers will always be updated to their latest versions, so you can forget about routine maintenance.
Main program features: Driver Updater – a useful little tool that keeps an eye on your drivers and makes sure they are 100% up-to-date Outdated drivers may be the key reason of overall system instability or degraded performance.
The program automatically detects the device's unique ID (Hardware ID or HID) and selects the driver for this device even more precisely than it can be done manually by the user.
The program uses one of the largest database with latest drivers for Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7, Vista and XP.
If you try to update your drivers, you’re told that the installed drivers “can cause problems, system slowdowns and bluescreen errors.” This is technically true, but very unlikely.
Buy Driver Easy now, and say goodbye to driver headaches and delays forever.
All drivers are official and tested by device's manufacturers, so users are protected from installing viruses and malware, which are often disguised as drivers on third-party websites.
Driver Updater also helps professionals, who have to work with multiple computers: instead of installing drivers for each computer manually you can use the program and install all drivers on all computers at the same time.
The reviewer below recommends “trying another one,” but you don’t need any driver-updating utility. We’ve seen other driver updaters behave poorly, too.
We saw one driver utility detect a virtual machine as a Dell PC.
