Driver Support is yet another driver updating utility that scans your computer for missing or outdated drivers and offers you a solution to download and install the latest releases of the needed drivers. The offered solution to update drivers may be indeed easy and convenient, but like many other driver updating tools on the market it's not free. Only scanning your system and viewing the problematic drivers is free, while in order to actually update them, you have to register and purchase its full version. While other similar tools at least made the price of the full version clear and in plain sight, with Driver Support you can only find out the price after you install it, run a system scan, and attempt to update one or more outdated drivers. And then, you have to figure out which one is the price you were looking for, becuase there are different prices, a high price for the version of Driver Support that has an extended license availability of 2 years, and even a higher one for the version of Driver Support that includes the “Active Optimization” additional feature. “Active Optimization” is an interesting function that lets you quickly optimize and boost the performance of your system.
Anyway, the “Active Optimization” built-in tool is not the only advantage of Driver Support. Driver Support also comes with a simple and intuitive interface that can be used even by beginners. Furthermore, Driver Support is quite reliable and accurate when it comes to correctly detecting the outdated drivers and providing their newest releases, as it makes use of a precise and comprehensive online database of drivers to match the scan results.
To sum it all up, Driver Support offers some undeniable benefits, so if you feel capable and willing of ignoring its awkward pricing and licensing issues, then it may be worth it.
