Driver Detective
Use Driver Detective to ensure that your drivers are always up to date

Driver Detective is a tool which can automatically identify your PC's hardware, list any outdated drivers, and even download and install them for you (although the last part only applies if you buy the full version - the trial lists potential updates only).

The program's operations are largely automatic. Launch it, click Scan, and all you have to do is watch as any outdated drivers are listed. The entire process is very quick, taking well under a minute on our test PC.

If you don't want to pay just yet, select "Out of date" in the "View" box and Driver Detective will display only your outdated drivers. Just seeing this information is useful in itself, as you can now scroll down the report, identify anything that looks important, and visit the manufacturer's site to download the update manually.

For real convenience, though, it would of course be much easier to let Driver Detective handle all this automatically. And if you're happy to pay, click Next, follow the instructions to pay for and register the program, and it'll then be able to look after your driver management needs, all on its own.

Please note, Driver Detective will by default install extra applications. If you don't want this then pay close attention during setup, and click the Decline button when it appears.

Verdict:

It isn't always necessary to keep your drivers up-to-date, and if it accidentally installs the wrong driver then this kind of tool might cause more problems than it solves. Still, Driver Detective can at least help you find if there are updates available, and that won't cost you anything at all.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Unreal Engine 4.15.1

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
