Fine Tune your PC with Driver Genius 9

Improve Performance and System Stability with New Driver Management Software from Avanquest

News release
12th January 2010


Avanquest Software Publishing, a leading developer and publisher of business and consumer software for the global PC market, has announced the release of Driver Genius 9, the latest version of its professional driver management software. Now Windows® 7 compatible and featuring a new Driver Download Manager for faster and more reliable downloads, the software automatically backs up, updates and locates new drivers to help ensure a PC is kept in perfect working order.


Combating the often undetected yet costly problems of system inefficiency,
Driver Genius 9 acts as a defence against system freezing and unexpected ‘shut down’. By linking via LiveUpdate to a database of over 30,000 drivers, the software provides download alerts if a new hardware driver is available to save users the time consuming and tedious task of manually searching through companies’ websites one-at-a-time. It then automatically checks the server connection speed and chooses the quickest server to download the latest driver.


Driver Genius 9 provides detailed information such as the driver’s digital signature, release date and benefit of installation, keeping users fully informed and in control. The software removes invalid and redundant drivers and backs up necessary programs in case of a system crash. A new Driver Install Wizard simplifies the whole installation process and users can also clone their drivers to an EXE auto-installer to make reinstallation on other computers quick and simple.


The latest instalment of the software ensures users benefit from optimum performance over a range of devices as it caters for all PC connected hardware including monitors, mice and keyboards as well as the latest gadgets such as digital cameras and mobile phones. An improved user interface also makes it easier and more convenient for users to manage their drivers, while backup files are named with date and time making it easy to revert back to previous versions if needed. 


The software supports Multi-Thread downloads, allowing multiple drivers to be downloaded simultaneously. A ‘diagnose your system tool’ identifies and fixes problems, taking the pain out of driver management. Users can also unlock hidden options in the NVIDIA display driver control panel including over clocking settings, fan control, stereo control, OpenGL 2.0 support and AGP settings.


Key features of Driver Genius 9 include:

  • Windows® 7 compatible so users can update their drivers to a new operating system
  • New Driver Download Manager provides faster and more reliable downloads
  • Automatic detection of the fastest server to increase download speeds
  • New Driver Install Wizard to simplify installation
  • Improved user interface makes it easier and more convenient to manage drivers
  • Enhanced support for Windows® Vista
  • Faster, simpler and more reliable updates, downloads, installations and backups
