Drivers are a very important part of any system, as they connect its hardware components with the OS and with installed software. Therefore when drivers aren't in top shape, the entire system is likely to be affected. DriverToolkit is a smart program that makes sure that your drivers are not a cause of problems for your computer. It does that by scanning your system for missing, broken, or outdated drivers and offers you to download and install the needed ones. It can do that even for unknown devices that aren't yet recognized by the system. Since it makes use of a huge driver database, you can also rest assured that the driver scanning process yields undeniably accurate results.

DriverToolkit also offers a fast scanning speed, so you won't have to waste precious time while using it. It also lets you back up drivers, so if anything goes wrong with the changes, you can easily reverse to a previous state. You can also selectively back up only specific drivers. Exclusion lists and scheduling are also supported features.

DriverToolkit is also easy-to-use. Its neat and intuitive interface can be used with ease by anyone, even complete beginners. The only problem I have with this nice program is the fact that its free trial version doesn't let you download and install the needed drivers – it only shows you the found issues and presents you with what needs to be done when you purchase the full version. Other than that, there's nothing else to criticize. DriverToolkit is a nice choice when it comes to driver fixing and utilities management.
