Whenever we purchase a new hardware component and install it on our computer, the normal procedure involvesinstallation of its drivers for this to work properly. Usually the drivers are provided on a CD or DVD supplied with the purchased component and date back to the production date of the latter, so by the time we install them these will already be datedand lacking in features found in new drivers.
If you think that this problem does not only happen with the new components installed on your computer, but with all those present since the first assembly, you can understand how important it is update the drivers of your computer, as you may get more performance in terms of speed, stability, troubleshooting and new features.
Precisely for this reason I am going to recommend thebest program to update drivers, with which you will also be able to identify the missing drivers, or drivers not yet present on your computer, which do not allow you to properly exploit your machine.
The program I'm talking about IObit Driver Booster, which comfortably with a few clicks, will allow you to update all the present and missing drivers, in one go, saving effort and time, and helping you not to make another serious mistake, that is to install the wrong drivers, which can compromise the stability of your computer.We will now see the complete operation in our guide.
How to install IObit Driver Booster
The driver update program that you can use on your PC with Windows Driver Booster, available for download in free version from the following link.
DOWNLOAD | IObit Driver Booster
Once the installer has been downloaded, start it to start the installation procedure on your PC. The very simple procedure: click Install to start it, then confirm whether or not to install the recommended IObit program (you can safely decline the offer by clicking No, thanks) and wait for the installation of the program. In the last screen you will be asked if you want to subscribe to the IObit newsletter, another offer that you can decline if you are not interested. At the end you will be ready to scan and find new drivers.
How to scan drivers with Driver Booster
After installation, the program should immediately perform a complete scan of the PC, looking for new drivers to install.
After this scan, which can be done manually at any time, we will have reported, reporting all obsolete or missing drivers found on the PC.
You can update the drivers individually by clicking on their right on Refresh or you can update all drivers at once by clicking on the big red button Update now present at the top right.
The program will create a system restore point (for added security) and proceed to download the drivers and install them automatically. The already updated drivers can be viewed in the card Updated, while if you are looking for other IObit programs you can contact the Action Center.
The program can periodically report the drivers to be updated, in particular those necessary for the game (video drivers and drivers for gaming peripherals), so as to always have everything you need to play with your computer at the maximum possible performance.
To automatically update the drivers just click on the top left of the three horizontal lines (in the sidebar), open the menu Settings, go to the sub menu Driver and select whether to download or download and install the drivers automatically when the PC is not in use (ie when you are away from the screen without interaction for at least 5 minutes).
Other Driver Booster tools
In the Driver Booster sidebar we find, we find 3 other icons:
- Boost, represented by a rocket, with two instruments. The first one on the left "Game Boost" is used to stop unnecessary apps and services, in order to free up system resources and improve game performance. On its right instead we find the "Optimize System" item for those who refer you to the download of another "Advanced Systemcare" software, with which to eliminate junk files and other files that weigh down the system.
- Another useful menu built into Driver Booster Tools, where there are useful tools to restore some of the most common problems that can plague the PC.
Select one of the available options (corresponding to your problem) to try to solve.
For example you can take advantage of the menu Security center to make a backup copy of your drivers, so that you can restore them if necessary in the event of errors or malfunctions.
All you need to do is navigate the menus and use the buttons offered at the bottom right to make and restore backups of a single driver or all the drivers on the PC.
With the option System information you will get an overview of the components on your PC.
The last side button instead a showcase of the other software created by Iobit.

As you have certainly noticed, the IObit Driver Booster program available in both free and paid versions. But how do the two products differ? You can find out by viewing the image below.

Both versions allow you to update the drivers automatically, but with the paid version you will get a much larger database (excellent for updating rare and obsolete drivers), a higher download speed (in the free version limited to 100 KB / s) automatic backup of updated drivers (in the free version it creates only automatic recovery points) and technical support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
