Keep your hardware's software update to date with DriverIdentifier
By Mike Williams


If you?re looking for an application that can locate driver updates for you then there?s plenty of competition around. Much of this is from commercial packages, but if you?d prefer a free option then DriverIdentifier could be a reasonable choice.

Installation only takes a moment, for instance. And while we?ve seen reports that DriverIdentifier has installed browser toolbars by default in the past, our version (3.9) did nothing of the kind, just launching the program when setup was complete.

One click of the Scan Drivers button and DriverIdentifier went to work, identifying our installed devices and their drivers, and sending the information to a central database. A moment later a browser window opened with the program?s report: a list of our drivers including device name, manufacturer, driver version and date, and download links presented for any updates, where available.
