  • Driver Booster 6.2 BSOD - AMD IOMMU Device Updated. (Great Product but needs more warnings not for the non-technical)

    Hi

    I came across IOBit Driver Booster 6.2 by accident being an IT professional most of my drivers were current, however it found a couple of updates for my network adapter and Wacom tablet.
    The problem I have with this software is driver run at Kernel Level which means if you install the wrong driver you could end up booting to a Blue Screen Of Death. (STOP screen)
    Driver Booster creates a restore point so fixing the issue is easy IF YOU KNOW HOW to do so and what a restore point is, some people don't!

    AMD IOMMU Bluescreened me; I and VMware 12 bBTW.
    If you need further info feel free to email me.


    Anyway I like your product and will be keeping it.

    A couple of points:

    1. The 'Update Now' button is a bad idea if you update multiple drivers and then get a BSOD you won't know which driver crash you, I didn't get a minidump or memory dump and it's setup correctly
    2. If you update a single driver, as time consuming as it seems; a reboot prompt should appear. :(
    3. if you select multiply drivers a warning dialog re-the above should appear.
    4. Most of all videos on how to recover using a restore point on all current windows OSes should be linked and prompted on first install.

    Great product otherwise!

    Thanks and Best regards,

    Robin
