Driver Booster 5
Are your drivers up-to-date? Here's how to find out

IObit's Driver Booster is a simple and straightforward tool which can scan your system for outdated drivers, then download and install replacements with a click. Upgrade to the Pro version and you gain additional features such as backup, faster download speeds and wider hardware support.

The program is unusually easy to use. There's no complex interface, no searching around trying to decide what you need to do: just launch Driver Booster, it immediately scans your PC, and a detailed report appears a few seconds later.

You can then click the "Update" button individually for particular drivers, handy if you want to keep precise control over exactly what's going on.

Or if you're in a hurry, just click "Update Now" and Driver Booster will download and launch each update. Thanks to a silent update mechanism, you no longer have to manually wade through each and every driver update package, but do expect to reboot at the end of the process.

It's incredibly simple to use, but more experienced users will find plenty of tweakable options available should they need them.

Version 5.0.3.360 brings (see changelog for more):

+ Supported more than 1,000,000 official drivers.
+ New database architecture for more accurate and faster driver matching.
+ New scan engine connects to server via HTTPS for safer and faster scan.
+ New download engine for faster downloading speed.
+ New Auto Driver Update to automatically download and install drivers & game components when PC is idle.
+ New timeline design for Driver Update History.
+ Supported the latest driver installation rules of Windows 10 Build 14310 and later, like Anniversary Update and Creators Update.
+ Supported more game components including Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable, Silverlight 6, Microsoft XML, and Microsoft Games for Windows Marketplace.
+ Optimized Driver Backups & Restore for more convenient operation.
+ Enhanced Fix No Sound tool.
+ Brand-new intuitive UI.
+ Supported 48 languages.

Verdict:

Driver Booster is a well-designed tool which makes it very easy to keep your drivers up-to-date.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.61

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.61

- Search messages within a specific chat: Open any chat, tap the chat name at the top to go to Contact Info/Group Info, and then tap Chat Search.
- Design improvements for iOS 11.
- Post text-only updates to your status and they'll be visible for 24 hours. Just tap the pencil icon in the Status tab, type what you'd like to share, and pick a background color or font.
