Uniblue Driver Scanner 2015 Review

It is a well-known fact that for correct operation of all the applications installed on the computer, it is required to make regular updates of all device drivers.
It is extremely recommended to keep all your device drivers up-to-date because they are a very important and necessary part of the operating system. They are connecting links between the computer and any internal or external device, for instance, video or sound card, printer or scanner, etc. Without them the system is not able to determine a device and therefore it does not work properly. Just for this simple reason, you always need the latest and only reliable drivers for proper functionality and performance of the computer.

The Main Features of the Program
Are you tired of searching for the drivers on the Internet, downloading and installing them? I completely agree with you; this is very boring and time-consuming. But now, thanks to Uniblue Driver Scanner 2015, you can forget about those problems because it will help you to make the process of finding, downloading and installing the most reliable and latest drivers as easy as pie. The program will do all these difficult tasks for you in three easy steps, i.e. it will find all outdated drivers on your system and download and install them.
The First Step- Scanning for Drivers– the program performs the scan for drivers very quickly; it takes less than two minutes to find all installed drivers on the system. Uniblue Driver Scanner 2015 practically supports all kind of drivers; it can find and identify the drivers for monitors, optical drives, sound and graphic cards, motherboards, network adapters, cameras, printers, scanners and many others. All outdated drivers are marked in three colors (yellow, dark yellow and red) and classified as old, very old and ancient.
You also have the possibility to view some information about the drivers, i.e. the current installed version and the updated one; file size and a vendor. If you do not want to update the drivers, you can simply ignore it and stay with the old versions.
The Second Step- Downloading the Drivers– after completing the scan and finding all outdated drivers the program will offer to download the latest version. The download time, of course, depends on the size of the driver and the speed of your Internet, but, as a rule, it is not very lengthy. All downloaded drivers are stored in the default location from where you can manually install them later.
It remains for me to add that you cannot download the drivers in the unregistered version; you need to buy it for downloading them.
The Third Step- Updating the Drivers– this is the last step which allows you to run an update after finishing the download. Just click on the button Update Now and the process of updating will start.

Restore– the program creates backups after updating the drivers, so you can restore the previous versions of the drivers in the event of the system failure.
Proxy Settings– this feature of the program allows you to use a proxy server for downloading the drivers.
