DeskToolsSoft Launches DriverFinder, Device Driver Auto-Update Tool

DeskToolsSoft releases, DriverFinder, quality software that enables end-users to auto-update their device drivers the safe, fast, and easy way.

San Francisco, CA – November 24, 2009 – DeskToolsSoft has just released DriverFinder, a system utility that helps users easily find the latest versions of device drivers for their personal computers.

Device drivers are applications that enable hardware devices such as a printer, video card, audio card, and others to effectively communicate with your computer. What a lot of people don’t realize is that drivers are often already ‘old’ by the time the hardware device is purchased. For instance, by the time a printer is sold, months may have elapsed from the time it was manufactured and shipped to local office supply stores.

In addition, a standard computer system is probably utilizing around 100 device drivers already. People who use a lot of peripherals (e.g., microphones, USB sticks, web cameras, etc.) will have even more. Trying to keep track of all of these devices and ensuring that each and every one of them is using the latest – and most appropriate – driver is a very time-consuming task.

With the above in mind, DeskToolsSoft saw the need for an efficient driver update tool and thus developed DriverFinder over the course of a year. The product was developed internally from the ground up and has been subjected to rigorous technical and consumer testing prior its release.

With DriverFinder, end-users have a fuss-free, automatic way of ensuring that their systems are using the most updated device drivers, thereby helping extend the ‘lifespan’ of their computers.

And according to company representative Melanie Tan, one of the things that set DriverFinder apart is the highly-automated way in which drivers are collated and presented to users. “DriverFinder utilizes a unique combination of (1) automated crawlers, (2) electronic driver file analyzers, and (3) manual checking by computer professionals BEFORE driver files are added to its database. This protects the integrity of our driver database, increasing the accuracy of driver update recommendations presented to end users.”

DriverFinder is available for immediate download at its official website:
