There are several situations in which driver updates are recommended. This ranges from incompatibilities to performance improvements, security fixes and new features that are added by those new drivers.
Software that can scan the system for outdated drivers has become popular in the last years. They are usually powered by a huge driver database on the Internet that will be used to compare the installed drivers and devices with the latest versions in the database.
This automatic approach offers several advantages but can lead to problems as well. The main advantage is obviously the uncomplicated use. Users of all experience levels can scan their computer system easily and update the drivers that are found to be outdated by the scanner.
The disadvantages is a chance for false positives if the device is not identified correctly and that updates may be missing since they need to be added to the database before they can be displayed to the user.
Driver Easy has recently been updated. The software is easy to use and will perform a thorough scan of the computer drivers and devices.
Each computer driver that is not up to date is displayed in the results window after the scan with options to download and install the driver right from the program’s interface. That’s a different behavior when compared to many other driver updaters who usually redirect the user to a website where the computer driver can be downloaded.
It is recommended to verify the drivers that are displayed as updates before they are installed to avoid installing incompatible or older drivers on the computer system. The software found several drivers that needed updating on a test system but failed to find the last driver update for the Ati Radeon video card.
Driver Easy is a very comfortable software that can be used as a first step to update a computer system’s device drivers. The software is compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. The download is provided at the developer’s website.
