Driver Genius improves PC performance with the powerful driver manager for Windows that backs up, restores, and updates your device driversautomatically with just a few clicks of your mouse. Driver Genius updates the drivers of your system can’t find on its own What’s more, this powerful and easy driver management tool can analyze your system and recommend suitable drivers for your PC from a database containing over 160,000 plus different drivers.
Driver Genius is a comprehensive application that scans your system for driver problems. It can then download the drivers you require and updates your system accordingly. It can also backup and update your drivers in a few clicks.
This tool can monitor drivers and run on a specific schedule that you set to scan device drivers and check current versions against online driver databases for the latest releases. This type of action typically happens as a background process so as not to disturb the user.
Powerful backup features
The backup function is one of the features that impressed us during our tests.
Driver Genius automatically scans the computer and offers you a choice whether you want to keep the backup in the form of a ZIP archive, a self-extracting or an auto-installing one.
This way, you can easily restore the drivers even if the program is not installed on the computer anymore, which is great especially when having to reinstall drivers on a fresh copy of Windows.
The update feature is also top-notch, not only because it tells you which drivers need to be updated, but also because it can take the new packages from the Internet and automatically deploy them on the system.
Several configuration settings
Accessing the ‘Settings’ menu will enable you to configure a lot of options such as the archive compression level or the reboot action after a driver restore. Driver Genius also provides a scheduling feature and you will be able to easily choose the interval the application will use to perform regular driver scans.
A neat function you will find in this menu is the driver virus scan you can set to take place after the packages are downloaded. You just choose the antivirus solution installed on your system and it will automatically check the archives for any malware components.
