The features it comes with are satisfactory as well. I always appreciate when programs don't assume I want them to load on startup and let me make that decision on my own.ConsThe program installed Adobe Flash Activex, which I had purposely left uninstalled. There is a checkbox to allow or disallow the action but it was the last item on a list of at least 50 and I did not think it would go beyond what was already installed far less to do so without making a request first.
After I let it update my drivers I lost all sound and had to perform a system restore to get it back.SummaryNice program for updating drivers but needs a little too much micromanaging.Reply to this review Was this review helpful?

When installed, it immediately scans your computer and produces a complete list of installed drivers. At the same time, it tells the user what drivers are out of date. You then have the option of downloading one or all of the out of date drivers.ConsI have been using this software for more than a year. I have yet to experience any serious problems.SummaryThanks so much for excellent software. I especially appreciate Uninstaller and Driver Booster. Keep up the good work. Serious computer enthusiasts appreciate software that is as bug free as possible.Reply to this review Was this review helpful?

creates a restore pointConsInstalls driver that locks up computer during install
computer will not boot to windows after driver install
requires that you do a system restoreSummaryI have been using advanced system care for years. This auto installed with a recent update of ASC. I have now tried it three times and every one of those times it has messed up my computer. The first time it caused it to freeze during driver installation which then required a system restore. The second time it would not allow the computer to boot into windows and once again required a system restore. The third time it REALLY messed me up. It installed drivers and I did not immediately do a restart the next day I ran ASC and cleaned up my hard drives well I am guessing that the cleanup process deleted the system restore points points because when the computer went to reboot the process failed and guess what, no frickin restore points!
So luckily I had my documents backed up so i re installed windows (you know that takes all day) and now I'm back to square one.
My other issue with this is that it installs generic drivers. When you go into control panel and click update driver AFTER having this update the driver window says the original (old) driver is the best and reverts back to it! So who do you trust more, some Chinese company or Microsoft? Personally I will stick with Microsoft and just eliminate having to deal with the issues that come along with this.Reply to this review Read replies (2) Was this review helpful?

It does update some drivers, but it is extremely slow. I found a problem when it attempted to update my video drivers. It asked me to turn off my security programs. It did cause several problems upgrading my video drivers.SummaryI'm not sure I would trust this program. it might be ok to tell you which drivers are out of date, but I would recommend downloading the driver direct from the manufacture. Also be careful installing any of IObit's programs. Do a custom install, otherwise it will change you homepage and add unnecessary toolbars.Reply to this review Read reply (1) Was this review helpful?

There is no Help option, other than the aforementioned message suggesting the three items that might be at fault, but after correcting those three items, Driver Booster STILL CANNOT CONNECT! I've wasted about four hours of my morning fooling with this thing and gotten nowhere. My pc still has a crashing problem connecting to a driver but I can't discover which driver it might be, which is why I installed Driver Booster in the first place. What good is it if it can't connect to it's own home base?
I'd love to hear from Iobit about this.SummaryI have nothing good to say about software that won't perform as advertised, although I use other Iolbit products with no issues, this Driver Booster needs much more work to be truly useful.Reply to this review Read reply (1) Was this review helpful?

Simply install, click scan, and in a few minutes fully updated and raring to go.ConsI don't have any. I wonder if the folks who are having problems with it are all using Win 7. I have 8.1 and though I'm not it's biggest fan it works perfectly. Something to consider maybe.SummaryI don't often say this but if it continues to work perfectly in the long term I'm seriously considering buying the pro version. Not because I think I'll get a better product but just as a big thanx for sharing great software for free. WTG IOReply to this review Was this review helpful? (0) (0) You are logged in as .
