    Thanks. Before trying, I have to make sure whether it's safe to update drivers with this freebie.

    I can't make sure that. But I have to say, it works for me so far. This software will create a system restore point before installing the drivers. So may be yes to your question, it's safe. Please make your own decision.

    So far, it has only found only one on my desktop, a RAID driver for a VIA PCI card that I'm using as SATA only, not RAID.

    How does a RAID driver benefit me when I don't have a RAID setup?

    Other than that, the app appears OK. Has been scanned by Avast, MBAM, SuperAntiSpyware & Virus Total, the results which are below. Hopefully the drivers they install are just as clean.

    Watch out, the app has placed itself in the apps that starts with the computer!

    This means manually stopping the app from loading at Startup. The same kind of crap that Slim Drivers (another Free competitor) does.

    This is exactly why I manually update all my drivers. Same thing for the registry. I use the...."If it aint broke, don't fix it"... philosophy.

    Tried to scan another PC, all it did for over an hour was spun while showing that one driver needed updating. Due to the fact that it never completed, I never seen what that driver was. At any rate, the PC is running fine w/o whatever driver it says needs updating. Like Bass stated, no need to fix what isn't broken.

    This may possibly have the potential to be a decent app, however as stated in the thread title "Driver Booster Beta 3.0", beta is an understatement at this time. Plus in recent years, IObit has been in hot water over using one of their competition's apps & claiming it to be their own & were caught in the act.

    IObit accused of stealing from Malwarebytes | Computerworld Blogs

    These type of deeds are never forgotten. IObit will always have this shadow hanging over it's head.
