"DriverScanner updates outdated drivers"


With UniBlue Driver Scanner, you'll be able to increase the efficiency and operability of your PC and its associated hardware. It also allows you to create driver backup files so you can easily upload your drivers from a disk after an Operating System re-install. Hardware companies often unveil new drivers for their hardware so that you can have a faster and better performing PC. UniBlue Driver Scanner makes this upgrading easy, and it's a great way to keep your system up to date. 


Installation of UniBlue Driver Scanner doesn't take very long at all. The download file size is relatively small, and the software itself is quick to load and very responsive. There's no adware or spyware bundled with UniBlue Driver Scanner, so you don't have to worry about junk files lagging your PC. Driver Scanner is compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8. And with this software, there's really no special PC CPU and RAM requirements to worry about because the file size isn't very large. It doesn't use a lot of system resources when running either. 


The interface of this program is easy to use. Immediately, once you launch the program, it begins the scan for outdated device drivers without you having to do anything at all. The main program window will display a rating scale of how old your current drivers are, and gives you the option to update them immediately. In the free version of UniBlue Driver Scanner, you can only identify the drivers that need fixing. You can't actually download and update them. But the UniBlue Driver Scanner program is actually very good, if you upgrade to the full version. 

From the interface, you can also choose to Manage how Driver Scanner operates. You can choose to start it with Windows automatically, and also automatically scan for new drivers when the program is launched. Additionally, you can create a restore point to roll back any driver changes and revert your PC back to the way it was before the updates. 


The UniBlue Driver Scanner program is top notch in the full version, and it's a known fact that outdated drivers can be harmful to overall system performance. If you haven't already, you should upgrade UniBlue to the full version so you can always have the latest device driver releases for your hardware. Driver Scanner is a very simple program, and that's one of the reasons why we like it so much. It scans your computer hardware quickly and allows you to update your drivers seamlessly. The Restore function also works well to keep you out of danger, and if there's any issues, you can simply restore your old drivers without a problem. 


  • Free Download Version Doesn't Allow You To Update Drivers - Only Identify Them
  • Sometimes New Drivers Wind Up Conflicting With Other Hardware


Driver Booster from IObit is free and works without the need to purchase the Pro version.

Systweak Advanced Driver Updater - With this program, you get a lot of options, and you'll be able to have the latest drivers installed without any issues. The customer support team for Advanced Driver Updater is also very responsive. They can provide answers to all your questions without any trouble at all. 

Perfect Updater - This is a great driver update program that's a solid choice if you're looking for an easy to use application that gets the job done right the first time. In a recent test, Perfect Updater was able to find new drivers for all the hardware it scanned on an outdated PC. It provides lasting performance that you can put to work for you right away. 


The UniBlue Driver Scanner is a great program, but we do wish the free version allowed you to actually install the identified driver updates. Instead, you're limited to scanning and seeing what you need to do. Upgrading to the full version of the program is affordable, and UniBlue is a great company with a wide range of software titles to choose from. Overall, we think UniBlue Driver Scanner is worth your time, and it was able to identify all of our hardware that needed updating.
