Driver Booster: Pro vs Free

Recent posts

Driver Booster 6 Pro Review (25% Discount Code)

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Driver updates are downloaded at max speed and it always seems to find all the outdated drivers on my computer. 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.

Tip: See how Driver Booster Pro compares to the free version for more info on whether you should buy it.

Top 5 Apps for Sending Money Online (With Zero Fees)

There are numerous ways to send money online, making it as simple as a few taps to pay a friend back, charge someone for something, split a restaurant bill, loan some money, etc.

However, not all money sending apps are free to use. While some might appear free at first since they let you send money to others and receive money yourself, you might need to pay a small fee when it comes time to actually transfer the money into your bank.
The money sending apps I've listed below are 100% free to use. They do not charge fees to send money, to receive money, or to withdraw your money (in most situations). Plus, you may even have a few of these on your phone right now, putting you just minutes away from sending money.

What's more is that some of these money sending services support card-to-card transfers, meaning you don't need to worry about hooking up your bank, waiting for verification deposits, etc.

My personal favorite way to send money is with the Cash app from Squ…

PIA VPN Review (Updated for 2019)

Private Internet Access (PIA) definitely ranks high in my list of VPN services. All the features are wonderful, it's easy to use, and it's very cheap when you compare it to similar services.

Even though the company is US-based, it has thousands of servers located across more than 20 countries, and you can switch between the countries as many times as you want (which you won't see with every other VPN service out there). Plus, you can use your account on multiple devices at once!

I use Private Internet Access for my two computers and iPhone, but don't buy it just because I recommend it. Look through this review to see the features to make an informed decision.

30 Best Torrent Sites for 2019

A torrent website lets you download torrent files and/or magnet links. You can find free audio books, free movies, free music, free software, free games...you name it.

Torrent websites seem to be pretty volatile, so while one might be working one day, it could very well be down the next.

Want to download torrents anonymously? See this price comparison of VPN services to find a cheap VPN service (not all of them support torrents).

Also, ensure you have a good antivirus program to combat any viruses you could get from these torrent websites. See this list of free portable antivirus software and scan your files frequently.
