Due to the fact that hardware and software can’t communicate with each other directly, we need a middle-man who would connect these essential puzzle pieces. This is the function that drivers perform. Still, even though drivers are so important, few users actually know the current condition of their drivers.

If you are one of such users, don’t worry, there is nothing to feel sorry about. Monitoring drivers manually are challenging, considering that an average computer uses hundreds of drivers every day. Monitoring each of them on a regular basis would be time-consuming and simply useless. However, you can install Driver Genius - a driver monitoring software that will scan drivers automatically and alert you whenever a potential issue arises.

How Can Driver Genius Boost Your PC?

The main scope of Drive Genius is to automatically scan your drivers in background mode and to detect any potential issues before it can hurt your PC’s efficiency.

In this application, you have access to the full list of your drivers where each of them is grouped according to its functionality, date of installation, and status. If there are broken or outdated drivers, these will be displayed right away.

Whenever a critical error occurs, you’ll be notified immediately. The tool will offer you a repair strategy and after receiving permission, Driver Genius will automatically fix the broken driver. If a repair is impossible, the software will recommend you to change the driver completely.

The tool has a clear and easy-to-use interface. All driver data is clearly displayed on the main screen. The scanning is performed automatically and in the background mode with default settings. You can customize your profile if you’d like but it’s not necessary.

Last but not least, the tool created backup copies of each driver as well as report copies. In case of a system breakdown, you will have all the crucial data saved. Also, the tool includes a hardware temperature monitor so you can prevent your processing units from overheating.
