The problem of missing or malfunctioning drivers is as old as PCs themselves. Driver Easy addresses this issue by taking the guesswork and stress out of the search for the appropriate driver which your system requires. As a driver search engine that definitely makes it easy to locate and download the right stuff, it lives up to its name.
Drivers are little chunks of software which make sure your hardware to work properly. Your computer's display, keyboard, sound card, or printer all require special drivers, for example. Drivers are product- and model-specific. Sometimes they need updating, and less often they become corrupt and need replacing. Hunting down the correct driver and its most up-to-date version is notoriously difficult, but Driver Easy promises to lighten the load.
The program keeps an expansive list of drivers and their locations on the World Wide Web. The database get updated daily, and it promises to return the most accurate and appropriate hits no matter how cryptic your driver query might be. You simply enter the driver data and chances are really high the program will point you in the right direction.
No, the software comes with a price tag some would call hefty outright. Then again, the alternative of sieving through forums and god-forsaken backwood websites in the vain hope of closing in on that one elusive driver may well justify the investment.
This program is a great purchase for professionals like IT support personnel or office managers who are tasked with maintaining workstations' daily operation. It is also a reasonable investment for DIY computer users who often find themselves reinstalling their operating systems, which inevitably comes with wiping one's driver logs clean, too.
The software is not targeted at professionals in particular. Novices who often experience driver problems will feel very comfortable and happy using it thanks to its intuitive interface, powerful search engine, and built-in expert advice on all things driver. Pros, on the other hand, will surely enjoy digging through the data mounds of over eight million files.
Yes, the program helps you ensure you do not 'break' your system by installing the wrong drivers. Before every installation, you can set a restore point and return to it if problems arise.
Despite its enormous database and important function, the software is actually quite lean and fast. It takes up very little space and requires minimal resources to communicate with its servers.
Drivers are usually small enough so that download speed does not really matter. However, the Pro version comes with palpably quicker download speeds than the Free one.
Yes, it is a totally safe program in itself. Make sure to set restore points and to install the correct drivers, though!
