Driver Booster PRO 4.4 Review (With 30% Discount Code)


Last updated July, 2017

Driver Booster PRO is by far my favorite driver updater program. The software is from IObit, a company with lots of awesome free and paid software.

This device driver updater can automatically find new drivers and even update them for you, which is something not all driver updaters support. In fact, some driver download websites or tools will only tell you what needs updated but won't download or update the software like Driver Booster PRO will.

Driver updates are downloaded at max speeds and it always seems to find all my outdated drivers. When it's time to update them, just click one button and they'll be downloaded and installed for you.

It doesn't just find driver updates, though, since it also supports updating game components like DirectX, Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable, PhysX, etc.

  • How to Scan & Update Outdated/Missing Drivers


    Driver Booster 4 PRO (1 year subscription, 3 PCs)

    When you first open Driver Booster PRO, the program will immediately start a scan for outdated drivers. Click the big SCAN button if it doesn't start.


    Scans are always super quick when I use Driver Booster PRO. Then, the program will list all the drivers that could be updated. It might look something like this: 


    You can immediately begin updating all the outdated drivers when you click Update Now. You can choose individual drivers instead, if you wish, and only update specific drivers. Just choose the Update button next to the on you want updated.

    Note: I recommend you update all the outdated drivers that Driver Booster PRO finds. It's important to have new, clean, updated drivers for your hardware. If you don't want all of them updated, just uncheck the ones that should be skipped this time around (you can always install them later).

    However, it might be wise to check the details of the drivers before you update them. It's super simple to do that in Driver Booster PRO. Just right-click the device and choose Details... from the menu.

    As you can see below, you can very easily see a comparison between the currently installed driver and the new one that Driver Booster PRO wants to replace it with. There's a version number, date that the driver was released, and publisher.


    Right-clicking a device also lets you roll back the driver to the previously installed version (which is good if the current driver isn't working well), uninstall the driver completely, or ignore the driver so that the program won't ask you to update it again.

    The right-click menu also includes an export option so that you can save the list of driver updates to a TXT file. This is great if you're sharing the details with tech support.

    How to Back up Drivers Using Driver Booster


    From the Rescue button at the top right side of the program is where you can back up your drivers so that they can be restored again later if something happens with the software. If the device acts strange after an update, go to the Driver Restore area of this screen to restore the backup.

    I really like Driver Booster PRO because it's so easy to use. The design and interface isn't confusing and it's a practical way to update drivers from a clean and reputable source.
