Please read all the way through!

 

I was checking another site  and found a link to IObits Driver Booster, sounded good had to try it.  As far as I can see it does everything it says it can.  Found ten drivers on my tower, 7 on my Toshiba LT and 16 on my Acer mini.  On my tower everything went quite fast about 15 min start to stop, big lap top 25 min, my poor little mini is still battling it out.  I would recommend trying it, all manufacturers drivers get out dated fairly quick.

 

The down load does have little junk attached, going through the initial applets you have to decline the IO tool bar it jumps to the next one and continues thi install.   Watch the last applet they sneal one more tool in, I let it through on my laptop looked it over and did a Revo on it.  Note does run slow machine on a lower spec machine, patiance is a virtue the wait will be worth it.  It may be an answer to the diver issues many of us suffer through.

For me, if it isn't broken don't update has been a virtue, I have seen other programs such as driver detective install new drivers and cause problems, some required reloads to fix (only on xp)... I'm not saying don't try it, but sometimes updates cause issues.


If I am helping you with a problem and I have not responded within 48 hours please send me a PM.

The talk about it on another site was very positive so I tried it, everything appears to have gone well.
