Auslogics Driver Updater is a commercial tool which checks for missing driver updates, then installs some or all of them with a click.
The program works just as you'd expect. Launch a scan, and any outdated drivers are quickly listed, along with the dates and times of the latest version. You're able to update individual or all drivers with a click, and there's an option to ignore particular devices entirely (useful if you'd rather install some drivers yourself).
As a bonus, it's also possible to back up and restore any or all of your drivers. This may help you recover if a driver update (or any other unexpected driver issue) causes a problem.
Does it work? The program delivered good results in a first test on our own PC, but needs reviewing for considerably longer before we could say for sure.
In the meantime you can get some idea by trying its scanning abilities for free on your own PC, but beware, this lists any outdated drivers only - there's no "update" option.
The latest 188.8.131.52 brings these changes:
- Improvements made to ensure more stable program operation;
- Added advanced search options that will let the user choose whether they want to install the most stable driver versions, even if they may be older;
- Resolved a few user interface issues and made some minor changes for more convenient navigation;
- Fixed all known bugs.
Auslogics Driver Updater appears to do a good job of locating and updating old drivers, but $39.95/ year seems expensive to us, even if it does cover 3 PCs.
