    Hello guys,

    I was wondering what software do you use to update your driver ?

    I was using drivercloud website but since a few day i use "Driver booster ( Iobit)". It's free and appear to be pretty nice and effective.

    Do you know this tool ? What do you think about

    Maybe there is any better ?

    Thanks a lot,

    Official driver installers and zip files only, win-raid if needed. :)

    Official manufacturer websites usually. Sometimes they say latest is on Windows update.

    Official manufacturer websites only. I don't trust 3rd party applications nor Windows Update.

    It's important to test the drivers too. Sometimes the latest version (Intel RST drivers for example) is not the best one to use.

    Why should I use a 3.party App for update driver? Using those apps, the user needs to take a time of a Scan of his/her system and will also be pointed to a lot of errors on the system, possible improvements and so on. On the end, this user will spend a lot of time for nothing or even bad other bull*hit!

    Those so-called 'Genius' driver updates are also interfering with a good working system or even remove better and newer drivers because those apps are not able to 'see' the reality!

    No, thanks for that S*IT!

    I only use official manufacturer website driver. These drivers are fully tested for their respective systems.
    Many times third party drivers are not able to properly synchronize with your system. Therefore I wait for official manufacturer driver updates.
