What are drivers? Why do you need drivers?
To be able to use Windows as an operating system, you can use almost infinite combinations of hardware. Apple has it easier, because they only use own hardware. A concept based on device drivers was therefore introduced for Windows: Every device needs drivers to work under Windows. This has two decisive advantages: On the one hand, the number of supported hardware is extremely high. On the other hand, Windows can also support or use hardware that did not exist at the time the operating system was developed!
Without drivers, Windows would not work. Unlike application programs like Word or Chrome, drivers do their work in the background. As a user, you usually don’t worry about it – until a device stops working. If, for example, special keys on your keyboard cannot be used, the printer only outputs confused characters or, for example, a connection to the Internet can no longer be established. These are all signs of driver problems.
In summary: Drivers establish the connection between your hardware and Windows. Different devices such as printers, monitors, graphics cards or USB controllers all require individual drivers that are compatible with the device and version of Windows.
Why do drivers need to be updated?
If you are installing Windows freshly, Microsoft usually installs drivers for standard components, which usually work somehow. The drivers from Microsoft are designed to run with the basic functions of most devices. However, the hardware manufacturers usually know their devices better and develop drivers themselves so that Windows can access the full functionality of the hardware. In addition, drivers from manufacturers are usually programmed more efficiently.
As with normal software, the drivers are constantly being further developed by the manufacturers, new functions are being activated, access to the hardware is being made faster, etc. In addition to the elimination of technical errors or the improvement of drivers, however, one aspect of security cannot be neglected: Security holes also occur in drivers. Nvidia has e.g. set up its own website with a list of the security holes of its own drivers (Link: https://www.nvidia.de/product-security/ )
Graphics cards, so-called multifunction devices, WLAN drivers and internal drives such as SSDs should have the highest priority for drivers. By the way: WLAN routers should always be up to date! Unfortunately, a driver updater cannot do this automatically. So you should log in to your router regularly and check if there is a newer update!
What is a driver updater and how does it work?
Our Driver Updater scans your hardware for all devices available in the system and compares them with our online database. If updates are found, you can download and install them. Important: You can create updates of all drivers in advance and you should be prepared for emergencies. Drivers from manufacturers can also be faulty and in some cases an error can only become apparent after days, which was not previously noticed in all tests. For example, in version 397.31 of the Gforce driver, Nvida had a bug that repeatedly led to an unsuccessful reboot on some systems. So be prepared with the backup integrated in ourDriver Updater! Our SecuPerts Driver Updater can update, save and remove drivers.
How do we search for our drivers or which drivers are provided?
We put a lot of effort into providing you with the latest and best drivers. Our internal systems scan several times a day at all major manufacturers for updated or newer drivers. New ones will be downloaded by us and briefly tested on the operating systems Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10 (32- and 64 bit respectively). After a successfully passed test, all drivers are additionally scanned with several security solutions, including technology from Avira. Only then the drivers will be transferred to our database and made available for our driver updater.
What devices are covered by the driver database?
The SecuPerts Driver Updater actually covers all areas of a Windows computer.
