Despite Windows Vista is not so new anymore, it is still an endeavour to look for its drivers once you decide to format your computer and reinstall the whole operating system. If you are lucky enough, when you buy your computer you will get a DVD containing all the drivers you need. But if you are unlucky, you won’t get anything and you will just have to look for the drivers on the Internet for yourself. A smart solution is to download or backup the latest drivers to a folder or a compressed file and use it when “something goes wrong”.
DriverMax is a nice freeware utility which lets you download or save the latest drivers for your Microsoft operating system. In this way you won’t need to look for them on the Internet or contact the support and ask what drivers your Windows XP or Vista needs. Here is a list of its most important features:
- Export all your current drivers (or just the ones that work ok) to a folder or a compressed file.
- After reinstalling Windows, all drivers will be back in place in less than 5 minute.
- You can display a complete report of all drivers (versions, release dates) installed on your system.
- You can also download the latest driver updates for your computer.
- Drivermax works for Windows Vista, Windows XP and Windows 2003 (all service packs).
