Excellent software, but beware: it will try to co-install a load of stuff. Be sure to opt out of every extra piece of software or just buy the pro-version.

I installed Driver Booster and let it search my Windows 8.1 PC and check the drivers and update, what it said was "old ones". This is how the nightmare began.
It doesn't use the manufacturers drivers like you would think it does.
It installs modificated drivers with IOBits malicious code in them. It will also start to replace Windows files with their own and also deletes restore points and add a lot of registry entries.
When I saw this I tried to uninstall it since I thought it would restore all important files and drivers it replaced.
But it did not do that! It did also leave files on my hard drive and register entries. Why don’t it uninstall completely IOBits? You know this will create problems for the users.
When I then restarted my PC it wasn't working at all, applications crashed and Windows was completely broken in all kind of ways. I tried to update drivers manually, deleting everything I could find on the hard drive and the registry, but it's simply impossible to get everything removed. It changes so many core files that you have to install Windows again to get your computer working.
And it adds hidden admin accounts, who knows what it does in the background.
You should go to the manufacturers websites to download and update the drivers, don’t trust third party applications and absolutely not IOBit Driver Booster.
EDIT 1/3/2019: I no longer use IOBit Driver Booster. I use Snappy Driver Installer. The interface is a bit clunkier but the accuracy is much better, and it's easy to make a restore point before each install just in case shit hits the fan.
I've tried SlimDrivers, DriverMax, and Unknown Device Identifier, and IOBit's Driver Booster has been the best experience - however, it's not perfect. It still missed 2 unknown drivers - an unknown "USB Controller" driver and one other that I had to Google manually using the hardware IDs. Furthermore, my keyboard and mouse both lag after my computer boots into the logon screen, causing me to wait for ~10 seconds before being able to type in my password. Also, my PC's POST now lags for ~20 seconds before the BIOS start screen (it used to be ~2 seconds). Not major issues, but issues nonetheless.
That being said, I'd recommend using IOBit to update drivers to fix a known problem rather than just to update everything for the sake of updating. You'll likely run into new problems if you just select everything and update it all at once. It may actually benefit you to keep the "Extremely Old" driver that was made in 2006, because that's the most compatible with all your other hardware.
And for the love of science, do a System Restore Point first.

I like it because it installs the drivers! There are few free software that downloads the driver and tell me to install manually!
Interface is very sleek and it works just find without paying anything, but it has occured to me that other softwares could provide newer drivers.
If your okay with all your information is being sold to third-parties - then Driver Booster from iObit is the go-to choice.
Been using it for a very long time, very good, fast and responsive.
All drivers are compatible.
Shows unwanted drivers.
Installs other iobit product as well.
I'll pick iobit driver serial over any other software anyday.
Bloatware with Limited Database for Free Users
It scans your computer and lists all driver's condition whether bad,worse, or worst. just click update on any driver and you are done. it automatically downloads the required drivers.
if u just want update your drivers then look no further.
drivermax,driverpacksolution , etc are all rubbish
