Keeping our computer(s) up to speed is a never-ending story. Making sure you have the latest, most updated drivers can be a daunting task and many give up on it. There are many tools out there promising to help you take care of this for you. Most of these sites and tools prove to be frauds, either overcharging you for free drivers, or installing old or useless drivers, causing more problems than they solve.

I have earlier told you about Driver Magician (and given away copies), which up until now was my program of choice, even though you have to pay for it. Now I bring you the ultimate Free Solution: Device Doctor

Easy, powerful, and Free Forever…

Device Doctor is designed to be easy. Click the Scan button and check out the results.

Because there are just so many devices and drivers out there for PCs, you might find that Device Doctor points you to the wrong driver, or an outdated version—and if that happens you should make sure to report an incorrect driver with the link on the driver download page.

As with any driver detection system, use caution when installing new drivers. Device Doctor recommend that you create a Restore Point before downloading and installing the new driver. I also recommend that you check your current driver version first – to avoid installing and old or outdated one.

Device Doctor may lack some of the other features (like driver backup) you find in the commercial solutions, but if you only need a solution to look for the latest drivers – then this TOTALLY FREE solution is all you need.

    “Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 (64-bit or 32-bit)”

    This looks handy. Having a look now, thanks for the tip Thomas ;)
