SlimWare Utilities announced Monday its new SlimDrivers and DriverUpdate software for updating and maintaining driver software and other software updates for Windows PCs
Many new systems and applications include programs to automatically check for and apply driver updates -- but not many do not, nor do many older systems or devices. SlimWare Utilities provides software and services to maintain software on Windows PCs, including 'cleaning,' repairing, restoring missing components and updating.
"As SMBs replace or add printers or other peripherals, buy new computers, or replace hard drives, their systems may need drivers -- and SMBs don't have the IT infrastructure that enterprises do to handle this automatically," said Chris Cope, CEO, SlimWare Utilities. "New drivers can resolve conflicts with other devices, or improve performance."
Andy Rathbone, author of "Windows 7 For Dummies," commented, "Many manufacturers release driver updates every few months. But very few driver updates trickle down to the user. And that's a shame, because some driver updates can fix nagging problems that have plagued users for months. Many driver updates can be skipped, as they only fix problems that few consumers experience. But if somebody's experiencing a problem with their computer, I always recommend updating their drivers to the latest versions. Driver updates can be a quick, easy, and free fix."
