Driver Genius Professional is a program that will check if your installed drivers are up to date. As your operating system interacts with your installed devices through drivers, it is very important to keep them updated, in order to ensure a better system performance. This tool will check the drivers you have installed in your system, and will find out if there are updates available through the Internet. If it finds any, it will show you all the information about each driver, offering you to download and install them.

For security reasons, the program can backup your existing drivers. If something goes wrong, you will be able to restore the old ones. You can also uninstall any given driver directly from the program’s interface. In order to download updated drivers, you will be using one of the four available Driver-Soft’s servers. You can check which drivers were downloaded by checking the "My Download" folder in the program’s window.

The unregistered version will allow you to check for updates for your drivers, but it will not let you effectively update them. Therefore, it is rather useless.
