BIOS Agent Plus
BIOS Agent Plus is a lightweight and portable piece of software that checks the version of installed drivers (including BIOS) and notifies you whether they need to be updated or not. It is very simple to work with, as it doesn't contain any settings.
Since there is no setup pack included, you can just click the executable file to run from any location on the hard drive, USB flash disk or other similar storage unit.
One of the most important aspects it that the Windows Registry area does not get new entries, and leftover files are not kept on the hard disk after eliminating the app.
At initialization, BIOS Agent Plus performs a thorough scan on the computer to check the drivers' status. Once it finishes, it reveals results in a page loaded in your default web browser.
Aside from the BIOS update availability, the program shows the status for disk drives, display adapters, DVD/CD-ROM drives, human interface devices, keyboards, mice and other pointing devices, and so on.
If any of these items is in need of an update, BIOS Agent Plus provides a shortcut to the link where you can get it. Unfortunately, this feature is not available in the unregistered version of the program.
CPU and RAM are minimally used during the app's scanning procedure. It displays accurate information without causing the OS to hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. Thanks to its overall simplicity, first-time users should experience no kind of issues in figuring out how to work with BIOS Agent Plus.
