Driver Booster 2.0.3.69

Intuitive program that helps you update all your drivers and game components, activate a silent update mode (popup notifications are disabled) and automatically create a restore point


Driver Booster is a lightweight software application whose purpose is to help you manage outdated drivers for all your devices. The tool features an automatic scan mode that allows you to update all your drivers and game components so you can enjoy a stable performance of your system and smooth gaming experience.

Clean feature lineup

You are welcomed by an intuitive layout that reveals a list with the outdated drivers and another list with the up-to-date ones. Additionally, the tool offers detailed information about device drivers and game components detected on your system, such as device, type, vendor, driver, provider and version.

From the main panel of the program you can check out the status of your driver performance (e.g. good, very bad, extremely bad), activate the scan mode with just one click, and view the results of the last scan.

Changing the looks of the application can be done by opting for a black or white theme, altering the transparency and changing the font size.

Update or uninstall drivers

Driver Booster is able to automatically download the necessary updates and install them. What’s more, it automatically creates a system restore point, so you can easily revert the changes in case of errors or other types of malfunctions.

You may stop the download process, enable the silent installation mode (the updating takes place in the background and you can continue with your work without receiving notifications and popups), uninstall drivers, as well as enable several post-processing actions, such as restart or reboot the computer at the end of the task.

Intuitive configuration panel

There’s nothing complicated about the configuration panel, as you may easily tweak several parameters. You can launch the app at Windows startup, automatically start the scan mode when the tool is launched, schedule the scan to start daily, weekly, biweekly or monthly, and display drivers that pass WHQL tests.

What’s more, the utility lets you automatically scan newly connected devices, pick the saving directory where all the downloads are stored, automatically create a restore point before a driver is installed, build up a list with ignored devices (that are skipped from the scanning process), as well as set up network parameters.

An overall efficient and reliable driver updating app

All in all, Driver Booster successfully mixes up a user-friendly interface with a handy pack of features for helping you update your drivers and game components without investing a lot of time and effort into it. There’s also a Pro version of the program, which can be found on the official site of the application, which offers support for driver backup for safe restore, enhanced hardware functionality, automatic program updates and other functions.
