DUMo scans your Windows system for hardware driver updates

How often do you really update the drivers installed on your PC? If you ask me, I don’t update my drivers just for the sake of updating. I need a reason for doing so.  What I think is that a driver might not always needs updating – but sometimes if you find something not working or you are getting Stop Errors, you may want to check up your Device Drivers.

Drivers are very important components of our computer system, and keeping them updated is equally important too. Knowing when and how to update the drivers isn’t as easy as we might like. Most of the computer users believe that it is very important to keep the drivers updated and if you are one of those, KC Software has an excellent utility for you. Driver Update Monitor, as the name explains helps you to manage all your drivers installed on the PC.

While you can always Back Up, Uninstall, Disable, Roll Back, Update Device Drivers using the Device Manager in Windows 8, DUMo automates the process for you.

With DUMo or Driver Update Monitor installed on your Windows PC, you do not need to check the hardware manufacturer’s web sites for the updates. As mentioned by the developer, the program automatically detects the installed hardware on your system keeps your PC up-to-date & safe by using the most recent version of required hardware drivers!

Updating the drivers can fix the performance issues in your PC and may also improve the security, stability and speed of the machine. The updates released by the manufacturers often brings new features of the hardware, but the major issue is that how and where to find the driver updates. The most common method used to check the driver update is to visit the manufacturer’s website and check for the available updates and then download it on your PC, which I believe is not so handy.

DUMo makes it all automatic for you. It is a one-stop solution which can help you to get details about all the drivers installed on your PC and also ensures that you have their latest editions. It is an easy-to-use application and as soon as you run it, it starts scanning the operating system and detects the installed drivers.

Within a few seconds the program displays the entire list of drivers installed on your device along with the version number and the manufacturer’s number. The main overview of the program displays all.  DUMo also shows the current RAM usage and CPU usage.

In a nutshell, DUMo (Driver Update Monitor) is a useful program which displays a comprehensive list of drivers installed on your computer. However, I won’t rate it as a perfect program because the program leaves the work half done. By double clicking any of the drivers from the list, you may land on KC Software’s page where you will get a link to Google Search page. The application does not provides the direct link to the manufacturer’s website. Furthermore, I noticed a ‘Status’ tab in the main overview of DUMo which is blank. I am confused what is this tab meant for; ideally it should show the status of the driver’s version.

Concluding the DUMo review I would say that the process should be completely automated to make it more suitable for PC experts.

DUMo free download

You can download the DUMo here. When you visit its download page, you will see under DUMo different kind’s of downloads available. If you click on the blue Download button, you will get a version filled with crapware. Click on the small button on the right – shown here in this image, by a red arrow – to download the Lite version, which is clean.

    Not a driver updater. A software updater that is less effective than FileHippo, which does the same function without being obtrusive.

    I avoid using Driver Updaters – ANY Driver updater! More often than not they end up breaking rather than fixing the computers.

  6. I use driver manager however its happened on there as well, plus one has to pay for it
