SlimWare Utilities launches new cloud-based software

Maintain the software that powers communications between an operating system and its computer hardware

By CBR Staff Writer

SlimWare Utilities, a provider of high-performance computer maintenance offerings, has launched SlimDrivers and DriverUpdate, a cloud-based software for updating and maintaining the software that powers communications between an operating system and its computer hardware, commonly called drivers.

SlimDrivers and DriverUpdate improve PC performance by repairing and updating the drivers between a computer and its printers, scanners, digital cameras, sound cards, video cards, Bluetooth devices and other peripherals, the company said.

SlimDrivers detects what devices need to be updated and identifies all the executables, enabling users to find and download the correct drivers for their system.

SlimDrivers and DriverUpdate provide the communication and function for sound cards, printers, video, motherboards, Webcams, Bluetooth devices, flip video devices, smartphones, USB drives, routers, Windows and other peripherals and operating systems.

The new product optimises the interaction between software and hardware, making applications and devices run faster and minimising system errors, freezes and crashes and also updates common software such as Adobe and Java.

It also Updates Windows, keeping systems free of security issues caused by out-of-date software and installs missing software for components and updates existing drivers and software.

SlimDrivers and DriverUpdate protect a system with back-up and restore features that safeguard data and allow for recovering of previous drivers or settings.

Both the products use crowd-sourcing to spider and aggregate millions of devices. They both implement the developments in analysis technology, coordinating checks with the Windows Device Manager, Windows System Manager and Windows Update Online.

SlimWare Utilities CEO Chris Cope said SlimDrivers and DriverUpdate prevent device errors by providing an overview of a PC’s hardware, flagging for updates and, in the case of DriverUpdate, automatically starting the install process for multiple drivers simultaneously.
