by Rohit Khurana on September 13, 2010


It is really very tiring when we have to search for the software updates. Many a times, the performance of the system is degraded if the drivers are not regularly updated. The processing time due to some errors becomes a major problem. Sometimes you are unable to identify the problems. At that time, you would prefer if all these things could have been managed automatically. To make the things simpler, I would like to review the tool SlimDrivers-Beta. It will help you in the regular and automatic Windows updates.

SlimDrivers-Beta is a freeware of 1.8 MB. It utilizes SlimWare Utilities cloud database to find the updates requirement of your system. It has some unique features to measure your system softwares. It will identify the recent updates available for your hardware, programs and applications.


The home page of the utility will give the details about your system as shown in the snapshot above. To begin with the process, click on Start Scan. It will take few seconds to scan your system. But in case, if the softwares have not been updated from a long time, it may take few minutes. After the scanning is over, all the new updates available will be reviewed as shown in the snapshot below.


You can choose to download all the updates just by clicking on Download all. Otherwise, some specific updates may be downloaded. For this, you can click on download update in front of the availabilities. Or check the ignore box for the updates you don’t want to download and download all others simultaneously.


Apart from the updates, it also facilitates to uninstall the hardware drivers. Click on Uninstall tab at the top and select the drivers. Make sure that you uninstall the drivers which are creating the errors or seems to be of no use any more. Click on Uninstall.


There are some options available to define the process regarding the updates scanning and downloading. The general options include to automatically select all the items after scanning, execution time and automatic check for updates. It provides the backup and restore options. Some other important features are available in Update options. It is related to your internet connection problems while downloading the updates. There can be a Correction retry timeout from 10 to 30 seconds. The Connection retry count can vary from 5 to 10.

SlimDrivers can make the process completely automatic. The Schedule options will help you to do so. Click on the Check box for automatic updating. It can be scheduled on the daily or weekly basis. The number of days can also be defined after which the updates are required. It can also be done on the basis of particular days of the week. It can be better understood with the snapshot shown below.


Still if there are some problems which you are unable to resolve, you can submit it to the publisher. According to me, it is the best way to update your system and have a good efficiency of the system. You must try it.

The freeware has been tested on Windows 7, so it will be compatible with all the versions of Windows.
