    What's the difference between "Driver Booster" and "Driver Manager" in ASC Toolbox tab?

      Beta Tester

      Running 3 desktops with different versions of Windows is tiresome at best when drivers that work with hardware configuration are required. Trying to find the right driver for each is a real mission. Aside from the ubiquitous Driver Update PAY software that really does not work too well, finding drivers is a mission, sometimes of futility.

      Should your DriverBooster work as advertised, then I am willing to buy it, but only after thorough testing.

      I have been a beta tester for Mozilla since 1990 and numerous other applications for the past 30+ years.

              Hi everbody,

              Although IObit is going to make this program shareware, which means it should be near perfect, I would like to bring some points to the attention before the program is released that users should consider. (not meaning testers.)

              - Update the found drivers one by one, so if any problem occurs, it will be much easier to remedy the glitch, otherwise, the solution is to return to the previous drivers one by one to find out the problematic one.

              - It is not true that always the new driver will be better for everybody (every PC configuration). This is specially true for laptops.

              - Specially to be careful, if the suggested driver by the concerned web page is a different make.

              - The CPU usage of the drivers should be watched too.

              I have made the mistake of updating about 19 drivers in Win 7 at once. All the drivers were the latest, perfect, but well.... The idle CPU usage went up to 60% from 4%. A perfect failure. :-P

              Just a reminder. :smile:

              Cheers.

                rollback

                Fortunately there is a built-in rollback facility within Windows, as Enoskype pointed out ,

                ControlPanel>DeviceManager>device(monitor/mouse/etc)Rightclick/driver/rollbackDriver


                BUT if you use non-standard retailers drivers problems could occur.

                Thats why i made my previous post
                Standard Belkin USB N wifi, installed using disk,(but showing as 802.11n lan driver in device manger/network adapters, after updating)
                however they and many other companies are
                a) notorioulsy slow at updating them
                b) rely on WindowsUpdate to update generic versions
                c) Actually use drivers from major component manufactuers for the product.

                In my case the driver is actually written by Railink, so i updated from the primary source.

                BE aware that if you go down this route, you MUST continue to use it
                and not the standard MS driverupdater, it will roll it back to the latest standard driver, Belkin in my case.

                Not sure how the definitions database will treat this?.
                looking foward to this

                  enoskype,
                  Check this out.

                  It a very new and inexpensive backup and snapshot utility that will revert your whole system (or single files) if something goes wrong.
                  It is amazing software and nothing else like it.
                  If I did what you did above, I would just revert, then go back to installing one driver at a time.

                    Beta testing

                    i tested it and had to point out a few things:
                    "note" some problems could be caused by my computer, i need people to confirm the following problems so i know it's not just me.

                    - It does not detect all drivers. (i know i have 3 updates and the tool only detects 1 of them.)
                    - Creating restore point is taking too long (already going on for 10 minutes - disabling creating restore point makes it work)
                    - i can't cancel any ongoing actions like creating restore points or downloading a driver. (have to close the program with the taskmanager)
                    - the driver updates are somehow very slow (makes 30 seconds lasting installations last for 4+ minutes)
                    - drivers dont install, (it takes ages to "install' them and then the computer has te reboot following in a rescan wich shows the same driver again.)

                    let's see how this will work out :).

                    i also got a few suggestions:

                    - a portable version, (1 version which only contains the program, and 1 version which contains drivers like a driverpacks for offline driver installation. just like Driver Solution).
                    - Driver management. (view and save the drivers you installed for use when reinstalling the OS or have to update/install drivers for a computer or notebook with the same hardware).
                    - if it is going to be a paid program and it would have a portable version, import the licence on the USB so its activated/pro even if you use it on a other computer. ( unlike ASC Portable which always checks for a licence on every computer and goes back to the free version if you dont have one).

                    i know Iobit makes great programs and im sure this will become one of the best driver updaters on the market!

                      just installed- ran for 1st time

                      installation ran without a hitch, I had thought all my drivers were up to date, but it found an intel update for my network adapter. if the program is going to be shareware after the best test period is over, I have an idea for a feature that will most likely increase the value for potential end users. some users like to test beta drivers and some do not. would be nice to have an option in the program settings whether to look for the latest beta drivers, or only certified drivers, especially with say, NVidia geoforce drivers, which update quite frequently. also, will the program seek out bios updates as well??????

                            Hi killermanx0,

                            Thanks very much for your detailed test result. :razz:

                            To look into these issues carefully, please refer to the comments inserted below:

                            - It does not detect all drivers. (i know i have 3 updates and the tool only detects 1 of them.)
                            If possible, please take a screenshot of the scan results of Driver Booster and your other application. There is also this situation: Several devices may need the same driver. So you may read you have several outdated devices, but you only need to download only one driver to get updated drivers.

                            - Creating restore point is taking too long (already going on for 10 minutes - disabling creating restore point makes it work)
                            This is mainly determined by how many files your system has. There is not much space for us to optimize this.

                            - i can't cancel any ongoing actions like creating restore points or downloading a driver. (have to close the program with the taskmanager)
                            - the driver updates are somehow very slow (makes 30 seconds lasting installations last for 4+ minutes)
                            You can not cancel creating restore point as this is the default design of Windows System Restore. But you can cancel the downloading of a driver, you just need to click the Stop button on Driver Booster.

                            - drivers dont install, (it takes ages to "install' them and then the computer has te reboot following in a rescan wich shows the same driver again.)
                            To look into this issue, please find and zip logs in %APPDATA%\IObit\Driver Booster\Logs and send us the zipped file. You can send it to support@iobit.com with providing this thread link.

                            - a portable version, (1 version which only contains the program, and 1 version which contains drivers like a driverpacks for offline driver installation. just like Driver Solution).
                            - Driver management. (view and save the drivers you installed for use when reinstalling the OS or have to update/install drivers for a computer or notebook with the same hardware).
                            Regarding the above two suggestions, in the settings, you have option to set the driver packs stored directory and decide whether to remove those already installed driver installers. So you can find these driver packs there.

                            - if it is going to be a paid program and it would have a portable version, import the licence on the USB so its activated/pro even if you use it on a other computer. ( unlike ASC Portable which always checks for a licence on every computer and goes back to the free version if you dont have one).
                            We are sorry that this suggestion may be not accepted as we have registration limitation for the license code. The portable can only have FREE edition's features.

                            Any feedback or suggestion for Driver Booster are welcomed!

                            Cheers!

                              Tried it on XP Home, SCAN runs for hours, never completes or shows drivers list. The last thing I use my PC for is "gaming" as if that's the purpose of a PC, especially an old 768MB RAM 1.8GHz celeron desktop.
