Drivers are integral to the smooth running of your computer, enabling games and other applications to work with your Windows operating system so that you can do what you want when you want to do it.
But keeping up to date with the latest drivers required for all those apps and games is tiresome. It’s all too easy to overlook an essential update and before you know it you’re staring at the Blue Screen of Death, your gaming wrecked at a vital moment.
Happily, there’s an easy solution to these woes and that solution just got a huge upgrade with the release of IObit’s Driver Booster 7.
Available at IObit and Softonic, Driver Booster 7 provides full support for Windows 10, Windows 8/8.1, Windows 7, Windows XP and Vista.
So what’s the big deal?
Well, Driver Booster 7 has an expanded database of over 3.5 million device drivers. Within this vast stable are the likes of Intel graphics drivers, NVIDIA game-ready drivers and AMD Radeon™ Software Adrenalin Edition.
Install the Driver Booster 7 app, choose your preferences for automatic driver updates and your worries are pretty much over.
The program can update all outdated, faulty or missing drivers with just one click, so all-too-common driver malfunctions like nvlddmkm.sys, igdkmd64.sys and the dreaded DPC watchdog violation error should now be a thing of the past.
The new version also has a vastly enhanced scanning engine that achieves scanning speeds double the previous edition.
You’re also guaranteed peace of mind – all drivers in the Driver Booster 7 database are sourced from the official manufacturers’ websites and have passed both WHQL and IObit tests to ensure security and authenticity.
The app can become your computer’s best friend, fixing various issues that are all too common with Windows such as a lack of sound, network failure and poor resolution.
But unlike some of your friends, Driver Booster 7 isn’t high maintenance and doesn’t indulge in attention seeking – activate silent mode and you won’t receive any notifications from it while you’re in full-screen mode, whether that’s to play games or watch a movie.
Some new game components such as Microsoft Visual C++ 2019 redistributable, Microsoft .NET Framework 4.8 and Java Runtime Environment 10 have been added to Driver Booster 7 to enhance gaming performance.
“Driver Booster 7 is the best driver updater to improve users’ PC performance and gaming experience,” said Bing Wang, Product Director at IObit. “More than 3.5 million drivers are fully supported and there’s no need to worry about compatibility. Driver Booster 7 will match the most suitable drivers for your computer’s hardware devices. It will also fix more Windows issues for a better user experience.”
