I would like a tool that helps manage drivers and not for just one type of hardware. Nvidia's program, for example, works fine, it prompts you, downloads and installs for you...for GPU drivers. I am looking for a program that can manage more:

  • Identify available bios updates
  • Windows updates
  • Hardware drivers (RAM, GPU, Sound etc)
  • Built in download and installation manager

An added bonus would be (This is likely completely unrealistic) a program that manages both hardware drivers and software patches.

    Download.com has one but since they've filled all their hosted installers with adware I've become rather anti download.com and wouldn't recommend it without a caveat of strongly read the EULA (which I haven't in years) and be aware of privacy risks there. – Nick Wilde Mar 11 '14 at 22:01
  • You could probably use DriverMax & Ninite for hardware drivers & software patches respectively, but considering the sheer amount of hardware available, I'm not sure you'd get that can do all – Sathyajith Bhat Mar 12 '14 at 11:59

  • Secunia PSI
  • Dumo (Drivers Update Monitor; get the lite versions others are loaded with lame ware)
  • Sumo (Software Update Monitor; get the lite versions others are loaded with lame ware)
  • SlimDrivers (Make sure you uncheck MyBackup during install)
  • DriverUpdate (from company that does SlimDrivers) but it sometimes conflicts with windows update.

The only thing these programs don't offer is BIOS updating.
