Hi,

 

I have had too many problems with Drive Booster versions in the past and choose not to use it. It would tell me I needed to update 2-4 drivers with the update link. Each time I used it one or more of the drivers was not the correct driver and caused problems. I have found it is much easier and you know with complete certainty you are getting the most current driver and the correct version for whatever device or feature by going to the manufacturer's website. I have not had any issues with driver updates using the manufacturer's website. Some drivers would work fine even if they were not the latest version but still an updated version, so I guess it depends on personal preference as to whether or not Drive Booster is the best way to handle updates. I personally prefer using the manufacturer's website for more complete accuracy and learning about any known issues users have experienced. If there have been issues with a driver update, it has usually been resolved or the website is working to resolve it. Drive Booster can be great for those who do not know as much about computers, so for those people I would recommend it unless you are familiar with a certain manufacturer and use their site often. Thumbs up

@Holleywood,

Sorry for the inconvenience you encountered about Driver Booster.

Kindly please note IObit is always committed to offer better performance for user's computer. It's true sometimes problems happens with Driver Booster, but you should know that it is impossible for our testing team to test every single driver update in every single PC situation because driver updates quantity is colossal and PC situations are various, and even though the updates are from official recourse and tested before being added into our database, they cannot be guaranteed to be error-free.

And if anything wrong happens, just let us know by email to dbfeedback@iobit.com (or just use the program built-in Feedback to contact us) and we'll fix it for you shortly.

Thanks for your understanding.

Right, it no long tells me their is an update for Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable. It does not show that I have Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable and if it is up to date or not. Thanks

A few suggestions:

 

1: When I decide to Ignore a device, the "Ignore this version only" box is always checked. It'd be best the previously used state was remembered, or provide us with an option to set a default state.

2: In the Settings/Ignored section, you could allow us to switch there between "Ignore All versions"/"Ignore this version only" - would be easier and more flexible to use.

3: Allow sorting of the various lists (Outdated/UpToDate driver lists, driver backup/restore lists etc.)

4: Add "do not show again" checkboxes, for example after recovering a device from the Ignore list. No need to ask confirmation for that every single time.

 

And most important of all, always try to make the driver suggestions as reliable as possible. It's always best to take a more conservative approach, than to offer dubious driver updates. I know that you cannot possibly verify all driver/PC combinations out there, but this is the most important point.

 

Thanks

Hi TheChecker,

Thank you so much for your kind suggestion.

For your first 3 suggestions, by considering of the convenience for most users and taking it all round, we will keep the original ways. And your fourth one will be forwarded to our developing team for consideration.

You please rest assured that all our updates are from the legal source and tested with strict rules. But you also please note that even though the updates are from official recourse and tested before being added into our database, they cannot be guaranteed to be error-free. It's up to you to update them or not. But if anything wrong happens, just let us know and we'll fix it for you shortly.

Thanks for your suggestion again.

Hallo Freunde,

bereits vor Monaten (ca. Februar) habe ich mit dem Driver Booster 4.2 die Treiber aktualisiert und bis heute habe ich keinen Sound bzw. Ton !!!!

Nach der Aktualisierung habe nicht sofort gemerkt, daß ich keinen Ton bzw. Sound habe !!!, als ich es merkte war nichts zurückzudrehen !!!!

Der Wiederherstellungspunkt ist bereits (glaube ich) wg. div. Updates WIN usw. usw. sicherlich weg !!!. Einleichtes Klack Klack Klack kann ich hören sonst nichts !!!!!

Habe WIN 10 - Toshiba-Satellite-P50-B-10M- (16 GB RAM). Meine Geduld ist am Ende habe sehr viele Stunden damit verplempert und dazu ohne Erfolg,

also Freunde äusserste vorsicht ist hier geboten

Werde wohl Toshiba um Hilfe bitten müssen, ich kann mir nicht vorstellen WIN 10 neu zu installieren !!!

Für jede Hilfe und Tipp von Euch wäre ich ewig dankbar. Vielleicht reicht es die Soundtreiber zu löschen und neu zu installieren, aber bei Toshiba fand ich keinen

SoundTreiber.

Also liebe Freunde nochmals herzlichsten Dank für Eure Hilfe und Tipps

Herzlichste Grüsse

didikol

Hello friends,

Already months ago (about February) I have with the Driver Booster 4.2 the drivers updated and until today I have no sound or sound!

After the update did not immediately notice that I have no sound or sound !!!, when I noticed it was nothing to turn back!

The restoration point is already (I think) wg. Various updates WIN etc etc certainly away !!!. I can hear anything else !!!!!

Have WIN 10 - Toshiba Satellite P50-B-10M- (16 GB RAM). My patience is in the end have spent a lot of hours with it and to no avail,

So friends are most careful

Will probably have to ask Toshiba for help, I can not imagine WIN 10 reinstall!

For any help and advice from you I would be eternally grateful. Perhaps it is enough the sound drivers to delete and reinstall, but with Toshiba I found none

Sound driver.

So dear friends again heartfelt thanks for your help and tips

Best wishes

Hi TheChecker,

Thank you so much for your kind suggestion. For your first 3 suggestions, by considering of the convenience for most users and taking it all round, we will keep the original ways.

Ok, thanks for your reply. I'll just give an example about 3 (sorting). In Rescue Center/Driver Backup for example, if you have a lot of drivers it's really difficult to know which are backed up or not. You have to scroll on the complete list and locate individual drivers. If it was possible to just press on 'Backup Version', that would be much easier after the sorting.

 

You could also press on 'Device' to sort them by name, to quickly locate a particular device. In its current state, it looks like a randomly sorted list that doesn't make much sense, and not so friendly to deal with.

Working properly. What i did not like was that if you want to clean up the Computer as it says, it doesen't tell you that there wil be installed a Cleaner (mor than 120mb)

I will look for the Folder in which the Drivers are downloaded to soon

Thanks for your further information.

In the current Driver Backup list, normally the drivers showed in Driver Backup list are able to be backed up. So normally you just need back them all. And if the driver is backed up before, there will be a backed version number under Backup Version, if the driver has no backup , it will show "Not backed up" under Backup Version.

Anyway, i will forward it to our developing team to consider.

Thanks again.

Hi Werni Mue,

Sorry that i failed to understand you clearly. Would you please take a screenshot of the related information in Driver Booster which recommends you clean up the Computer and installs a Cleaner for you and send it to us?

Hello

Thank you for this software (Driver Booster 5) I'm not anglophone by the way so maybe there will be errors. I just want to send feedback because this software seems to have potential, free, good interface and support for gaming (hope gaming section will be improved/developped constantly).

I searched on internet "driver update" because the previous software that I used was not good enough and I found you and another one, I installed both.

I prefered you thanks to the qualities I wrote above. But the other one found more drivers to update. Also you did not find for my second laptop the updates for the two graphic cards, yet there was an update from NVIDIA and Intel. Even thought I use Geforce Experience for this.

 

So for my main laptop (GTX 1070 + I7-7700HQ) the other software shows :

 

Intel® watchdog time driver

Intel® management engine interface

 

Don't know if it is really useful.

 

The second laptop (W10 64b, I5-3337U, Intel 4000 + Nvidia 710m)

 

Updates for the two graphic cards

Update for Realtek high definition Audio, current is 8186. New version is 8216. Which is strange because for my main laptop I have the 8216

And again the Intel® watchdog time driver

 

Also I want to know why OpenAL is useful for gaming ? Thanks
