Ever wonder why your PC gets balky, slows down, or fails to operate the way you want?

One of the most likely possibilities is that your computer is struggling with out-of-date, generic, or un-optimized software drivers.

How Drivers Can Affect Windows Performance and Stability

As you may know, a software driver (or quite simply, a "driver") is a special-purpose computer program written specifically to make a piece of computer hardware work with your computer.

For example: a printer, touchscreen or touchpad, mouse, scanner, fax, and other devices all need drivers for them to function within Microsoft Windows.

If your computer doesn't have the driver, the device won't work. If you install the wrong driver, the device will function erratically. The wrong driver can also cause your PC to become unresponsive, unreliable, and crash, resulting in a loss of data.

Modern PCs: Like A Cruise Ship's Engine Room

Down at the lower levels of your computer system are intricate linkages of these device drivers. Each device driver provides the necessary liaison between the computer and one of its hardware components.

It actually takes hundreds of physical components (memory locations, processor pathways, electrical power regulators, capacitors, switches, plus all the rest) and their drivers to make a computer go -- and all of them must work perfectly, in total harmony.

For simplicity, you can think of a computer's device drivers as the machinery in a cruise ship's engine room.

While the people on the top deck (that's you) are eating, drinking, and enjoying the "cruise ship's" facilities, the equipment down in the "engine room" is working hard to keep it all afloat.

When problems arise (with the drivers) in the "engine room," the ship's passengers start having to deal with no lights, no air conditioning, no hot food, and no way to call home for help!

It's a situation everyone wants to avoid. Now you can, with DriverScanner 2013!

Regularly Correcting and Updating Device Drivers is Vital

Ordinary software programs can check for their own updates, but not drivers. They require regular, detailed, external management, maintenance, and repair or replacement.

Within Windows operating systems, drivers regularly go out of date with no warnings or even detection. That means every Windows computer user runs the twin risks of performance problems and device driver errors -- every time they boot up their computer.

" Drivers can become outdated and possibly damaged to the point where they slow the system performance. " ~

Manually Updating Drivers is Often Dangerous

Of course, you can manually check the status of each and every driver, and individually update those that need it. But this would be time consuming and tedious. With so many devices inside your PC, it could take hours to check every one by hand -- and that's if you are able to find the website and web page that has your driver available.

Sometimes a new driver you put in is damaged, or the wrong one, and causes your computer to start working worse then before. Now your only choice is to put back the driver you replaced, and begin again looking for the correct replacement.

Typically, device drivers are available from the device manufacturer. However, the proper driver is normally buried deep in the manufacturer's web site, one of literally hundreds -- perhaps thousands -- of similar drivers for the various devices (and models) ever built by the manufacturer. It's a real pain to find and download the correct driver for your computer and its device.

Unfortunately, many of the driver pages are not optimized for search engines, and rarely ever get found by search engines.

Unless you know exactly where to go on the Internet to find a newer, updated driver, you can spend a long time looking for the one you want. Sometimes, you simply can't find the right one, resulting in a lot of frustration and wasted time.

Watch Out for Malicious Websites 'Offering' Drivers

There's another danger associated with doing your own driver updates: many third-party web sites pretend to offer the correct drivers, but don't. Clicking on the wrong page in search of a driver can lead you down a dangerous path and may even infect your PC with a virus.

Some websites pretending to offer device drivers do it only to collect your email address. When you get access to their sites by handing over your personal information, the driver you seek is not there, or it's out of date.

Many tricky sites also ask users to pay for access to the same software driver that is available for free from the manufacturer.

Even worse: search engines like Google and Bing are plagued with listings of malicious websites offering what appears to be legitimate drivers -- but instead trick you and infect your PC with a virus.

Thankfully, you no longer have to navigate this minefield or suffer with incorrect, or out of date drivers.
