Slimware Utilities Launches Cloud-Based Software for Updating Computer Drivers
Miss., December 6, 2010 – Slimware Utilities, provider of
high-performance computer maintenance solutions, today announced
SlimDrivers and DriverUpdate, the industry’s first 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.
Both products are
available for download at http://www.driverupdate.net.
SlimDrivers is a
free application. DriverUpdate is a premium, fully automated upgrade
that’s available for $29.97 for a one-year subscription.
Printers, Scanners and Other PC Hardware Components
Drivers are the
software applications that allow an operating system to communicate
with the hardware attached to it, such as printers, scanners, modems,
digital cameras, sound cards and other peripheral devices. Driver
software is like a translator, helping a computer communicate with
its hardware and telling the hardware how to work. Like any software,
driver programs need to be updated to fix bugs and resolve conflicts
that can develop over time. Updating drivers can dramatically improve
a PC’s entire system performance, including making the hardware
and peripherals function better.
detects what devices need to be updated and identifies all the
proper executables, helping consumers to find and download the
correct drivers for their system.
the premium, fully automated upgrade, goes a step further to
actually start the installation process for multiple drivers
automatically, allowing consumers to update all their drivers
software simultaneously in an easy, sequential process. DriverUpdate
provides an easy experience for busy consumers, while SlimDrivers
provides a more self-directed experience for tech-savvy IT users.
updating software removes the frustration consumers feel from
slow-moving or malfunctioning computer hardware,” said Chris
Cope, CEO of Slimware Utilities, Inc. “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. Because we’re cloud-based, our system provides
the most up-to-date driver for your specific system.”
Both products update
driver software for all popular computer device brands, including
Acer, Brother, Canon, Compaq, Dell, Hewlett Packard, LG, Microsoft,
Mitsubishi, Samsung, Sony, and many others.
Cope noted that
DriverUpdate is great for online gamers because manufacturers of
graphics and sound cards regularly distribute updates that enhance
the performance of their products. SlimDrivers and DriverUpdate give
gamers the benefit of automatic installation for the correct, most
current graphic and sound card updates.
First launched as a
public beta at the Black Hat Conference in July, SlimDrivers and
DriverUpdate are coming to market now with cloud-based upgrades that
improve the product’s ability to identify the best, most
compatible driver software for a PC. Using a cloud database gives
SlimDrivers and DriverUpdate access in real-time to the most current
software driver updates.
