Driver scanner review , search and update your drivers

In computing, a device driver or software driver is a computer program allowing higher-level computer programs to interact with a hardware device.

A driver typically communicates with the device through the computer bus or communications subsystem to which the hardware is connected. When a calling program invokes a routine in the driver, the driver issues commands to the device. Once the device sends data back to the driver, the driver may invoke routines in the original calling program. Drivers are hardware-dependent and operating-system-specific. They usually provide the interrupt handling required for any necessary asynchronous time-dependent hardware interface.


A device driver simplifies programming by acting as a translator between a device and the applications or operating systems that use it. The higher-level code can be written independently of whatever specific hardware device it may control. Every version of a device, such as a printer, requires its own specialized commands. In contrast, most applications access devices (such as sending a file to a printer) by using high-level, generic commands, such as PRINTLN. The driver accepts these generic statements and converts them into the low-level commands required by the device.

Today drivers are critical for the system performance stability and reliability , computer software and hardware are growing fast , with such complex structure driver became very important , This one of the main reason why user should keep their driver uptodate .

One of the main Driver mostly updated by user is the for video card , then sound card , HDD chipset ... etc .

For graphic card (for example) up to date driver has many strong side , let us note some :

  1. - Improve Video card compatibility with OS
  2. - Improve Video card compatibility with Game
  3. - Improve gaming , Better quality , higher performance ...
  4. - Improve Video decoding : faster decoding and better picture Quality .
  5. - AND with new NVIDIA CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture : a compiler and set of development tools that enable programmers to use a variation of C to code algorithms for execution on the graphics processing unit (GPU)) ,faster software execution , outstanding folding ( a distributed computing (DC) project designed to perform computationally intensive simulations of protein folding and other molecular dynamics (MD) ) performance , just like the encoding performance ETC....
  6. ..........The list is long but we listed only the main sides .

For sound card user will get a better sound Quality ... Faster IDE driver , chipset ....

In a word driver update is one the frequently executed task by user in order to maintain the computer stability (Older driver Cause crash incompatibility and BSOD) , Performance (New updated code with support to the newest application) , and reliability .

For all those reason Microsoft included a Build in driver update to maintain the working state of their operating system (Windows All) , But from our personal experience the online Microsoft driver update are not so frequent (Since Microsoft is concentrated on Bug fix for their operating system , security and code update which is not an easy task), So , User are forced to check usually each manufacturer site and update their hardware independently .

Well , here come The driverScanner software which all to update all driver automatically and instantly (Thanks for Clara & Sean for sending this software copy for tests) .


Uniblue DriverScanner 2009 :

    • DriverScanner 2009 Main window :

From the start let us note the nice software interface , All menu are clear everythings is packed on the small interface .

Here is the main window , where the software report about the number of up to date and outdated driver , last scanned time ....

    • DriverScanner 2009 Driver Scan  :

The Driver scan part is split-ed in three subcategory :

Here user can select between different devices part to search for updated driver , the section is almost complete , The software cover all installed hardware .

The scanning windows

Last scan result : inform user about the status of last scan and the driver status .

And finally the useful download history section where user can check the downloaded driver .

    • DriverScanner 2009 Backup  :

Since driver update is critical and inappropriate driver can just kill the system ,  the software include a back up function , User can easily back the driver or all driver before installing the fresh one .

    • DriverScanner 2009 Restore  :

The restore option  is also required , since it do not make sense to back up some driver without the ability to restore them :-) . Here is a complete safe driver update , With backup and restore function in one of the most accessible way even to new users :-) .

    • DriverScanner 2009 Settings  :

And finally the software setting and some information about the system .

Conclusion :

Driver scanned proved to a complete software which ensure an automated driver update , it\'s reliable completely reliable and keep the hole system fast and stable.

Pros :

  1. Automated update .
  2. Fast scan
  3. Online driver database
  4. Driver roll back
  5. Back up and restore

Cons :
