I find there are lots of driver updater tools available now, but how to select the best one?
Yesterday, IObit Driver Booster was released, it said the easiest, one click "update" all outdated drivers.
It's free version, but I don't know whether this free software are better. thanks for your advice.
I moved your thread to the support section as the one you posted in is for News.
To be honest your far better off finding out which drivers you need and then monitoring them yourself. Even Windows update will at times present old versions of drivers and it's for this reason most enthusiast users will have the settings not at automatic but 'check for updates but ask me whether to download and install them'. Sure it's a little more work but on the plus side you get to know your system better and will be aware of possible issues far quicker than if everything is done automatically for you.
So can I recommend a driver update utility for you? Yes, you!
If you'd like some help on tracking down on what drivers you need and where to get them from then post your system details, make and model or if you built the system your self, list the components.
Fully endorse what Kemical says. Automatic driver updating and al these update wizards cause far more work and problems than they save. I always identify the hardware and visit the manufacturer's websites to manually check for updates, manually download them and manually install them.
I think the way it works is manufacturers only submit drivers that contain crucial fixes or something like that. I don't think I've ever got the latest version of a driver via Windows Update. I might have to look into this a bit more.
Normally, I update old drivers manually from "Computer=>Manager=>Device Manager" (I have upgraded my System from XP to Win7). I tried Driver Booster that you mentioned, it seems worked. So I guess, it will be useful for XP system.
