Driver Whiz

PC Drivers Headquarters (Freeware)

Driver Whiz is a driver updater program that scans the computer and lists all the outdated drivers. The program’s database consists of over 20 million drivers. The software can save time by providing users with update links instead of having to search for the drivers manually. The program’s interface shows a Scan Summary of the system in the form of a pie chart. Components checked are out of date drivers, devices with no drivers, up to date drivers, and system drivers. Users can update drivers by clicking the item on the Driver Details list that can be found at the bottom of the window.

Driver Whiz has a computer specific search system that checks the driver’s compatibility with the computer’s manufacturer to ensure that the driver link provided is the correct one. Another feature of the application is the built-in driver backup wizard. The wizard allows users to back up drivers to a disc or to a USB flash drive.

The program’s other features include the following:
• Easy migration tool for upgrading or downgrading the operating system
• Driver monitoring
• Retains legacy drivers for devices that are not manufactured anymore

Driver Whiz performs automatic updates to make sure that the database is always updated.
