Universal Driver Updater is a simple-to-use program that will scan your system for obsolete, missing and outdated drivers, and will offer you to fix these issues by downloading and installing the latest releases of the needed drivers. By keeping your drivers up-to-date you will be able to avoid any system performance issues that are commonly caused by problematic drivers.

Universal Driver Updater is intuitive and straightforward thanks to its self-explanatory interface. Even complete beginners can use it without any problem. Its scanning speed is also really fast. When it comes to additional features, the most remarkable one is the capability of backing up the drivers before actually performing any changes to them.

Nevertheless, Universal Driver Updater is a typical driver updating application, as many others on the market, that failed to make a remarkable impression on me. It comes with many benefits, but they're the same benefits that pretty much all other similar applications offer, and I find it very difficult to see any reason why would this program in particular stand out of the crowd. The trial, unregistered version only shows the outdated drivers; in order to actually update them you have to purchase the full version. Even this annoying licensing restriction is something that many other similar driver updating tools also use.
