Device drivers are like little programs that MS Windows uses to successfully communicate with your devices, such as printers, network adapters, graphics adapters, processors and so on. Keeping the appropriate and up-to-date device drivers is vital for the optimal performance of any Windows system, since otherwise there might be problems such as system hangs and instability. KC Software DUMo is a specialized tool that helps you detect your outdated drivers.
Every time you run the program, it automatically executes a system scan and lists all the detected device drivers, be them up-to-date or not. Every one is listed with its corresponding device name, manufacturer, current version and status. The program tells you if a new version is available for any of them and, if this is the case, the available version number. Moreover, using the commands under the "Action" menu, you can export the drivers list to a text file either in plain text or in CSV formats. Also, the program's main window includes two tiny monitors that visually show you the CPU and memory load levels. All the activities performed by the program are logged, and you can review the log file at any moment too. Finally, you can refresh your drivers list at any moment by simply clicking on a button.
Unfortunately, I have to say that the trial version of this program (referred to as the "Free" version on its website) doesn't really allow you to evaluate the program's effectiveness or power. Firstly, if you select an outdated driver and click on the "Download" button, all the program does is redirects you to a webpage where you can supposedly download the new driver, but this will only be possible if you have registered the program. Optionally you can get redirected to a Google custom search, but of course you will need to be an expert to be able to locate, download and install the right device driver through this method.
In conclusion, judging by its trial version, all I can say is that this program is good for detecting outdated device drivers on your system, and it will probably provide you with links to the latest ones. Downloading and installing them is up to you, thus, I wouldn't really recommend you using this tool, given that there are other ones capable of automatically updating device drivers for you.
