"It’s not often that paid software is considerably better than free software. ... Driver issues are one of the top reasons for a PC becoming unresponsive, unreliable and unusable. Driver Booster can help you keep on top of driver updates in one place, rather than relying on Windows Update, your PC manufacturer or another source to get it done." —Melissa Popp, (January 02, 2013)

Portability Notes

  • Driver Booster do not have portable mode. It writes to Windows registry and stores its settings in Windows data folders while running.
  • Make sure it exits cleanly before plugging out your thumbdrive.
  • You can help by sending request to the official developer to add "portable mode" to their future release.
