The PRO version comes with many additional features compared to the freeware edition.

Driver Booster is a simple-to-use application that analyzes all installed drivers, tells you whether they need to be updated or not, and downloads the latest versions at user's choice.

It comes packed with an intuitive configuration set that can be adjusted by all types of users, even the ones with limited experience in such applications.

The tool sports a modern interface with well-organized structure, where a list of all drives is immediately loaded at startup. You can check out their performance level and device type.

For every outdated driver you can ask Driver Booster to bring it up to speed. This task can be set to run in the background, in order to not interrupt normal user activity. Once the job is done, a system reboot is required to complete the operation.

As far as settings are concerned, you can adjust the frame transparency, switch to another language, set the app to autorun at system startup and to minimize to the system tray, as well as to scan the drivers automatically at program launch and on a regular basis (e.g. daily, monthly).

It is possible to modify the default saving directory for downloaded drives, disable the automatic restore point creation, create a device ignore list, as well as use proxies.

The program updates drives quickly while using a low amount of CPU and RAM, so it doesn't affect the computer's overall performance. It has a good reaction speed and works smoothly, without causing the OS to hang, crash or show error messages. In conclusion, Driver Booster offers a simple and effective solution to updating system drives.
