Driver Genius icon Update or uninstall drivers on your computer, schedule scan operations to find outdated drivers and view a complete hardware information report

Handling drivers is undoubtedly a difficult task, so every single software solution that can really give a hand in this respect is welcomed.

One of the applications that aims to fulfill that goal is Driver Genius. This tool was designed not only to help users back up and restore drivers, but also update or uninstall these all important system components from a single and easy-to-use interface.

Powerful backup features

The backup function is one of the features that impressed us during our tests.

Driver Genius automatically scans the computer and offers you a choice whether you want to keep the backup in the form of a ZIP archive, a self-extracting or an auto installing one.

This way, you can easily restore the drivers even if the program is not installed on the computer anymore, which is great especially when having to reinstall drivers on a fresh copy of Windows.

Update options

The update feature is also top-notch, not only because it tells you which drivers need to be updated, but also because it can take the new packages from the Internet and automatically deploy them on the system.

Several configuration settings

Accessing the 'Settings' menu will enable you to configure a lot of options such as archive compression level or the reboot action after a driver restore. Driver Genius also provides a scheduling feature and you will be able to easily choose the interval the application will use to perform regular driver scans.

A neat function you will find in this menu is the driver virus scan you can set to take place after the packages are downloaded. You just choose the antivirus solution installed on your system and it will automatically check the archives for any malware components.

Smart and reliable driver manager

All in all, Driver Genius offers a great feature pack that coupled with its ease of use makes it very appealing to all users.
