If so, what is your opinion of this product - Iobit Driver Booster?.

I have made a number of review information searches, but would like to know if any member of this forum, as anything further to add, negative/positive?.

Thanks for that. I installed it yesterday due to a Windows 7 blue screen problem, and it was suggested that product might help resolve the problems of the particular blue screen incident?.

In the main the product seems to have fairly good reviews, both the free version and the Pro version?.

Why did you think it was not very good?.

Have you used an alternative?.

Been using it for about 11 months and it is OK. Like all similar programs it can occasionally make a mistake but it does create a restore before installing any new drivers.As it is a yearly subscription model I will probably not renew as I have found that free Slimdrivers does a reasonable job too.

There is a clue in the name lobit (in the bin)

I like IObit but driver software I leave well alone and get my drivers from motherboard/laptop website, the graphics web site etc. many years ago one messed up my pc never touched them since it so easy for them to revert your driver to an older version or instal the wrong driver in error and the pc fails to start on next reboot,

I don't fiddle with drivers, but if I'm stuck after a reinstall, I use the free version of Slimdrivers. This one usually points to the manufacturers driver rather than a third party one.

There seems to be a number of suggestions regarding SlimDriver. So I have downloaded a copy, and will go from there.
