Both home users and IT teams spend a lot of time installing fresh drivers or updating and repairing the driver issues in system operating systems. Due to the proliferation of new hardware vendors exponentially, it is becoming more and more difficult for IT engineers to support the IT infrastructure in terms of updating the software drivers frequently to optimize the performance of systems. This problem of managing software drivers is even grimmer in large organizations where you have remote teams and unattended servers and kiosks. So whether you are an individual, an SME or a large corporation, you need some dependable solution to encounter such challenges. If you want to address driver related issues, you may find a Driver talent as a great solution.
After going through an easy process of installation, you get a simple and clean interface that has a black background and clear menu displayed in white color. The first screen you get asks you to scan the computer system and in no time you get the detailed report in the next screen. The main interface consists of two sections that include a left sidebar showing main features and the larger right section that consists of a detailed report or instructions. On the upper right corner of the user interface, you can find the chat options and other menu items with user guide, FAQs and much more. So if you ask me the first impressions, thankfully Driver Talent had been delightfully designed GUI with well-placed menu items.
The Driver Talent software scans all the hardware components of the system after clicking the SCAN button. After that, you have a clear overview of the status of all the device drivers. For an example, the status report may show some drivers that need to be re-installed, updated, repaired or needs a system reboot. With a single click, you are able to take action on all the device drivers. Alternatively, you can also manage the device drivers manually one-by-one. So for me, it’s an easy to operate driver-management tool. For the same hardware component, you will be able to see many software versions available, but the best part of Driver Talent is that it also recommends you the best-matched driver for the device by placing a thumbs-up icon in front of that version.
This software is equipped with an all-important rescue center to backup and restore the drivers even in the absence of the internet. On clicking the backup drivers, the Driver Talent software will automatically list all those drivers that need to be backed up. With one-click, you can restore the much-needed software drivers from the backup location on your local system. You can also change this backup location from the settings of this software. I really find this feature, quite handy when you have just formatted the drive and no internet is available due to the absence of Network drivers.
While installing, updating or repairing the drivers, the biggest issues faced by the users is the corruption of system files and computer hanging issues. In this regard, the Driver Talent offers a useful option to create a system restore point before you begin working on device drivers. So in case, the system gets into any kind of issues after updating or installing the drivers, you can easily restore the system to its earlier stage by clicking the system restore menu icon.
Another big concern with the users is that while un-installing any old drivers from the control panel, there are chances that some residual files are still left behind either in the system registry or some other traces or entries left behind in the system. This is where Driver Talent comes into play. It is capable of fully removing all the keys or entries in the system related to the device driver. On clicking “Uninstall driver” from the rescue center, this software will scan and result in all the drivers that you can uninstall. So you won’t need to manually uninstall the drivers which is really handy and ensure complete removal and also saves time.
The feature that makes this software stand tall among its competitors is its ability to install and update the drivers of all the peripherals connected through USB port. On the left sidebar menu, under the peripheral devices, you can easily find the submenu in the name of “Printer drivers” and “USB drivers”. You can install both USB as well as Network printer.
Last but not the least, Windows assistant is a bonus for users who want to optimize their systems. The Driver Talent software detects any system issues that may include missing DLL files, incompatible drivers and much more. The software is capable of scanning and removing any such issues from the system and necessarily boosts the system speed and enhances the gaming experience. Furthermore, Windows assistant also allows you to view all the hardware configurations right on the screen.
