The drivers are a very important part of any system, and keeping them up-to-date ensures that your system runs smoothly and error-free. Missing, corrupted or outdated drivers can considerably affect the performance level of your computer. Unfortunately, manually performing the maintenance of your drivers without using the right tools is a very difficult job, if not plain impossible. This application has been specifically created to help you with this job, and it makes the managing of drivers a simple and effortless task, as its name says.

One of the most remarkable advantages of DriverEasy is the fact that it comes with a very simple and easy-to-use interface. It’s a wizard-driven interface that guides the users step-by-step through the driver scanning and updating process. Three steps are enough to complete this process. Once your system is scanned and the drivers are detected, you are allowed to manually start the updating of the outdated ones, one-by-one. In order to download them automatically, purchasing and registering the application is required. This is in fact not a downside but a benefit, since the vast majority of driver updating applications don’t even allow you to manually download the latest versions of your drivers without buying the full versions of those tools. But with DriverEasy, you can actually get your drivers updated even if you only have the trial version of this utility. It will take longer as you have to manually press the “Download” button for every listed driver, but it eventually gets the job done, and I really appreciate this about this tool. Furthermore, this powerful program can also backup and restore your drivers, or let you simply uninstall the faulty functioning ones. As you can see, DriverEasy is one of the most convenient driver updating applications on the market, and it also gets my full recommendation.
