How Does DriverAssist Update Drivers?
DriverAssist performs an in-depth scan of your entire system and all devices attached to it and verifies that you have the latest and most compatible drivers installed. It determines which drivers are missing, corrupt or obsolete.
After the initial scan, DriverAssist matches your device with the latest and most up to date version of your drivers by scanning its 26 million drivers database.
Before DriverAssist installs the new drivers, it performs a backup of your actual drivers just in case the new drivers would turn out to be incompatible with your system or device. This is an added security for your computer.Lastly, DriverAssist downloads all the files required and installs the drivers for you. Your drivers are now up to date and your device should now be working exactly as it should.
What Are Drivers?
Drivers are pieces of software that allow the computer itself to interact with a hardware device. Without drivers, hardware you connect to your computer – i.e. a video card or a webcam – cannot work properly.

Is technical know-how required to update Drivers?
DriverAssist has been designed to make updating drivers on your PC as easy as possible. This easy to use tool can update drivers on your PC in just a few clicks – no tech skills required.
Can I get device drivers directly from the manufacturer?
In most cases, yes. Since every manufacturer is different, technical skills are required in order to get device drivers free of charge using this method. You will need to know specific information about each device and source these drivers one-by-one to install them on your PC. Because there are numerous versions of drivers per device, it makes it very risky to attempt this on your own. Installing a wrong driver could cause many problems on your PC such as hardware failure, error messages and blue screens crashes (problems will vary per instance).
Unregistered users can make use of DriverAssist’s proprietary driver scanner free of charge. This scanner will show you which device drivers need to be updated on your PC, and will locate the EXACT driver you need per device. From here you can manually source the drivers one-by-one, or simply register DriverAssist to update all at once.
How long does it take to update Drivers on my PC?
It’s impossible to estimate the time involved for you to manually source each driver from each manufacturer – this depends on multiple factors such as: the number of drivers required, your level of technical skills, and importantly, do the manufacturers make their device drivers easy to find online?
DriverAssist users have no need to manually source each driver for their PCs. This incredible time saving Windows® application manages all of your Device Drivers for you – making sure you’ve always got the most compatible and up-to-date versions installed on your computer.
