Important Notice: You should beware that using third-party automated driver updaters, in rare cases, can cause serious issues to your PC (even if the driver has passed WHQL testing), it is not recommended to use it unless you are a computer novice or you are very short on time. Moreover, make sure to create a system restore point and backup your private data before using it and review each driver manually before updating (sometimes they are not accurate, offering you a driver from a different manufacturer, for example, an Asus driver was offered as an upgrade to an Intel device).

"If it's not broken, don't fix it": don't get paranoid about driver updates, you probably won't need them! it will not improve the performance of your system or stability (the only drivers that you should update frequently are for graphics cards, sound cards, and LANs). if you don't have any problems such as faulty/broken drivers or unrecognized devices, then it's better to stay off. Most of the time, driver updates just add support for new hardware (and probably driver-updaters can't determine the difference). Use at your own risk!

"Best Driver Updater": There is no "Best Driver Updater". We really don't know how reliable driver updaters are. we have tested about ten apps and each one gave us a different result after scanning. You should be aware that there are scam apps that just show you fake driver updates and issues or use other misleading tactics (like scaring you with bad words - crashes or blue screens, etc), to try convincing you to buy them. Anyway, you can be sure that the software that are listed on our website are real, genuine, and reliable. And one more thing to say: don't be impressed by the name or the brand, because we tested driver updaters on known software brands and they showed very bad results)

It's better to use an in-house driver update program from computer/laptop manufacturers or to do it manually (looking up for each driver individually on a device manufacturer’s website, although you can get help from these tools to just identify available updates, making your work a little bit faster), it is time-consuming but its better that way. Finally. The best driver update tools are probably Windows built-in "Device Manager" (you have the option to auto search for drivers on the web for each device - right click on the device you want to check, then click "Update Driver"), and "Windows Update" (Microsoft has made major improvements on their automatic driver detection in the recent years), and you won't need anything else (there are some rare cases where they won't help you).
