Product Features

Diagnostics

Outbyte Driver Updater gives you a hand by figuring out which device drivers are outdated, corrupted, or missing from your device. Outdated device drivers can contain security or stability issues when not updated - they can even cause peripherals like the mouse or keyboard to stop working. Driver Updater helps avoid these issues with regular driver updates.

Driver Updates

After a thorough computer scan, Driver Updater recommends official drivers for the hardware and devices you have installed. Clear and concise information is provided covering the installed and recommended driver versions, and their developers. You’re in control of which of the drivers will be installed on your computer, and which ones you’d rather skip.

Scan Scheduler

Outbyte Driver Updater can be configured to automatically check for driver updates five minutes after every Windows bootup, as well as letting you set up a daily, weekly, or monthly automatic scan. These automated scans allow you to relax, secure in the knowledge that you will be alerted to any available driver updates - all you have to do is select which ones to install.

Back Up & Restore

To give you peace of mind when updating your drivers, Driver Updater includes backup functionality. Before updating any drivers, the backup feature allows you to save a copy of your current drivers, or you can simply rely on the automatic backup option that saves copies of drivers being updated. That way, if you ever run into any issues with an updated driver, you can choose to restore one or more of the backed-up drivers via the restore feature.

Optimize PC performance

In addition to its main functionality, Driver Updater checks for potential tweaks, such as reducing CPU usage, extending battery life, preventing PC overheating, and more, which could be applied to optimize device performance and make your PC better fit your needs. You can review the suggested tweaks and apply all or individual ones.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I update my drivers?

The general recommendation is to update your drivers if you notice any hardware or performance issues. Device manufacturers create new drivers and update their functionality quite often, so updating drivers regularly has a positive impact on the overall performance of your computer and improves compatibility with new software and hardware.

What to do if Driver Updater cannot find a specific driver?

If the application cannot offer an update to a particular driver, this usually means there is no suitable version in the database for your device at the moment. The same driver can perform differently depending on the OS version and components used, so Driver Updater will show only recommended updates based on your system configuration. In such cases, we recommend contacting our PC Help Desk for live support - our technicians will carefully check your components and install the required driver manually.

How to make sure that drivers were actually updated?

To confirm that a specific driver was updated, head over to your Windows Device Manager (right-click on This PC → select Properties → click Device Manager), locate the corresponding category, find the device with the driver you want to check, click on Properties, and select the Events tab. If there is an event with the timestamp that corresponds to the date of the update and with the “Device configured” description, it means that the update took place and was successful.

Is updating drivers via a third-party tool safe?

Driver Updater updates your drivers the same way as if you updated them manually. However, thanks to its extensive database of drivers and special algorithms, the program is able to scan more than 100 devices connected to your PC in a couple of minutes, check their drivers, and update those that are outdated. Driver Updater installs only official drivers made specifically for each device being updated.
