Driver Genius is an all-in-one program for dealing with drivers - it scans for problems, downloads driver updates and backs your drivers up from within one simple interface.

As soon as you open Driver Genius, it will present you with the option to scan for out of date drivers. You can then download any that might be missing, maximizing the performance of your hardware.

In addition to searching for out of date drivers, Driver Genius can also perform backups, including individual driver backups. These backups can be used to restore the system at a later stage if necessary - and Driver Genius will save them to a variety of formats so you can store the backup easily.

Driver Genius is an easy program to use, and needs almost no technical knowledge, as it prompts at every step. What's more, it has a number of nice features, such as a driver install/uninstall feature, the ability to schedule a scan for out of date drivers and the option to use the antivirus you already have installed to automatically scan downloaded drivers for viruses.

Very comprehensive, but surprisingly simple to use, Driver Genius is a good option for driver management.
