Auslogics Driver Updater is a commercial tool which checks for missing driver updates, then installs some or all of them with a click.
Using a driver update tool can be handy for checking for out-of-date drivers for hardware items such as your graphics card, where having the most recent driver can lead to performance improvements. It can also be useful for updating old drivers if you're upgrading to Windows 10 or 11 from an older system. One of the biggest obstacles faced when upgrading is old drivers that are not Windows 10 compatible, which will often lead to the upgrade process bombing out, complaining it can't continue.
Driver Updater works just as you'd expect. Launch a scan, and any outdated drivers are quickly listed, along with the dates and times of the latest version. You're able to update individual or all drivers with a click, and there's an option to ignore particular devices entirely (useful if you'd rather install some drivers yourself).
As a bonus, it's also possible to back up and restore any or all of your drivers. This may help you recover if a driver update (or any other unexpected driver issue) causes a problem.
You can also schedule a driver update check, which you could schedule for once a week or even once a month, to keep on top of the latest releases.
Does it work? The program delivered good results in the first test on our own PC, but we'd only advise upgrading essential drivers such as for your graphics card, audio and your peripherals.

Most system performance issues are often a result of other software clashing with your brand new software. For instance, security software can clash with a background process, such as a system maintenance tool or defragmentation software. Another cause of system slowdown, is a result of two software applications performing a similar task. As an example, Windows includes a firewall switched on as a default. Your new security suite is likely to include a firewall. You only need one firewall running. In this example, try turning off your system firewall.
Uninstalling Your New Software
Occasionally you may need to either temporarily or permanently remove your new software.
On a Windows computer, go to the Control Panel and choose Programs and Features. Locate the program within the list, then click it to highlight it. Finally, click the Uninstall button at the top of the list and follow the instructions to remove the program from your PC.
On an Apple Mac computer, using Finder, locate the Applications folder. Within the Applications folder, find the name of the application you wish to remove. Simply drag the icon to your Trash icon in your dock. Empty the Trash to remove the files from your computer.
Still Having Problems?
If you cannot solve your system performance issues or are struggling to remove your software, we advise contacting the software manufacturer. If you placed an order, see the section in the order which states Support options. Alternatively, go to the Contact Us page to contact store support directly.
