A Breakthrough in Driver Updating Technology !
DriverHound is the only driver updater program that automates driver updates. Using DriverHound you can establish preferences to your liking and the program will download, install, and update your drivers automatically.
A computer system is made up of different devices (printer, speakers, mouse, hard drive, monitor, etc.) that are all connected to the central processing unit (CPU). Each of these devices is an entity unto itself that relies on communicating with the CPU to ensure they are following the commands they receive. The driver is the communication mechanism/software that relays the message back and forth between the CPU and the device. If the drivers are outdated they can relay incorrect information to the CPU, which can result in a computer crash.
Miscommunication between the CPU and the devices could also rendered the devices useless. Many people have thought because their printer, speakers, mouse, monitor, etc. were not working properly they were damaged and ended up purchasing a new device. In reality, many devices related computer problems can be solved by ensuring the correct driver is being used with it.
If a driver becomes too aged it has a very good chance of being out of date and not “supported” by the manufacture. Having the most recent drivers keeps your computer system running smoothly and gives you the latest and greatest features and functionality of the devices you already have (including software).

My subscription for Driver Detective just expired and I thought that I would do some research on which driver updater to use moving forward. After doing some research I decided to purchase DriverHound and I haven't looked back. DriverHound is easy to use and has been great at keeping my drivers current. I wish the scan/download was a little faster...but what the heck.
DriverHound is the best driver update program of the six I have purchased in my hopes to update drivers that Windows Updates does not. The other five driver update programs all had blind spots that left my confidence in them less and less. They found the drivers but they could not update about half of them--leaving it to me to figure how to fix half of my drivers--which left me with less and less confidence in their use. But DriverHound changed all that by simply 1 finding my 18 drivers needing updating 2 backing those up 3 downloading them automatically 4 installing all of them with no excuses My confidence went immediately to 100 percent and then realizing I live in an imperfect world--I immediately dialed it back to 90 percent which is still fabulous. I highly recommend DriverHound to any windows user to get the absolute best performance from their PC computers with no fuss and no muss. Great program. Click and let it do all the work

I previously had Driver Detective. BIG MISTAKE!! It would not download the drivers. Purchased Driver Hound and within 45 min. 9 drivers were updated and my computer was running great. Thanks Driver Hound. - David Graves
