Driver Genius is a program designed to detect and update obsolete drivers. It works on Windows systems from Windows 2K onward. The application scans your PC to identify all the installed drivers and checks if they are updated and function normally.

Windows-based programs need certain drivers in order to run software programs correctly. Without these drivers, programs will not load, or they risk crashing unexpectedly. Driver Genius can fix this problem by scanning and updating drivers, ensuring that your hardware and software run smoothly.

One of the most useful features of Driver Genius is its backup and restore feature. It is well known that installing the incorrect driver can have disastrous consequences; it can even inhibit you from booting your computer properly. Sometimes drivers can be overwritten or replaced with faulty files, resulting in a number of system errors. To avoid this kind of problems, Driver Genius allows you to back up your drivers before making changes. If you find yourself installing an incorrect driver, simply use the restore feature and roll your drivers back to a saved state.

Driver Genius is an excellent tool for all users. It is an easy way to ensure that your Windows computer runs smoothly and efficiently. You can download a demo version of the program that works with several limitations. To update, restore, and maintain drivers, you must purchase the full version for $29.95.
