In any of the computer systems, Drivers are one of the most important utilities installed in the system and that too irrespective of the hardware that is present in the system. Drivers are basically used for communicating between the hardware and the OS or the other programs installed in the system. Whenever, there is a need to reinstall the OS in the system, it becomes almost compulsory to install the drivers again based on the system’s configuration and the hardware present in the system. User must know all the details about all the drivers and services present in the system. For this, we recommend you a utility which can prove very helpful in serving this purpose.
ServiWin is a small and portable utility which is developed by Nirsoft, and it is used for obtaining the information about all the drivers currently present in the system. It displays the detailed list of all the installed drivers along with the services with complete information. This information can prove to be very helpful in identifying and troubleshooting all the issues related to the driver. This information includes the complete file description, version of that driver, product name along with the manufacturer’s name, its status, complete boot configurations and also the error control information. Along with this information, the tool provides you the functionality by which you may stop, start, restart, pause, and continue your Windows services and installed drivers directly. User can even change the start up configurations for these drivers and can also save the list of services/drivers to a file and store it in the system for some future use.
