Keeping your Windows drivers current can quickly become a cumbersome and time consuming task. Trying to update your drivers manually is tough with just one PC but becomes almost impossible if you have more than one PC to take care of. Fortunately, there is an easier way. Thanks to the power of the Internet, the task of keeping your device drivers up to date can be automated.
Instead of you worrying about if you have the right driver or the right version, you can install a software utility which will take care of those things for you. The software itself is easy to install, just a few mouse clicks and it is installed on your PC.
The software itself does not go to every vendor site to check for new drivers. Instead it connects to a database on the Internet with the latest drivers. The database is updated all the time with new drivers and if necessary, faulty drivers are removed. New drivers are verified before they are entered into the database, to make sure that they function correctly and that they do not contain any viruses.
The software utility on your PC checks your devices and drivers. Then it connects to the database and checks if any drivers need to be updated. The new drivers are automatically downloaded from the central server. The software installs the new drivers and backs up the old drivers, just in case an upgrade needs to be reversed. All this is done in the background while you work on other tasks. The software utility keeps on checking your drivers, making sure that your PC always has the latest drivers.
If you have one PC, this kind of software utility is handy. But if you have a couple of PCs to take care of, this solution becomes a life-saver. And fortunately, you generally get a discount if you use this kind of utilities on more than one PC. The more PCs you have, the cheaper the license gets.
