DriverMax – As the name suggests, the main purpose of DriverMax is to keep the drivers of PC updated. It runs a scan on the system to check the status of versions of all the drivers installed, and then updates those drivers that are older. Software and drivers keep on getting updates by the developers to be compatible with most of the advanced features that are introduced almost every day. Therefore it is a great tool for helping you in improving the performance of your system and its attached components.
DriverMax is one driver update software product that deviates from the usual in a very unusual way. First, there is the unique menu, which instead of the run of the mill button and dialogue box approach, it uses four drops down menus in one window. This can make for a slightly confusing first time use, especially for those people who have used other driver update software in the past.The looks aren’t the only thing that’s different with DriverMax.
So far, it is the only driver update software that requires the user to sign up for an account with the company that produces it in order to use the program. It requires that you submit your email address and come up with a username and password for your account, which is odd for these types of software. It become a bit like a web service that provides driver updates rather than a stand alone software program. Also, DriverMax’s help and support leave a few things to be desired, especially considering that it requires you to create an account, presumably so that their product support people can provide help more efficiently.DriverMax does offer quite a few extra features.
Aside from the usual scanning and updating drivers, it also allows you to backup your current drivers, restore previously changed drivers and downgrade drivers when the need arises. DriverMax also updates you with the latest popular hardware available. However, it does bring up questions of whether the product also does marketing for the popular hardware while it does its main job of updating your drivers. As for the essentials, DriverMax’s accuracy for detecting outdated and corrupted drivers is above-average in today’s industry.
