Computer systems play a large part in any business—large or small. Big companies have whole departments devoted to nothing but managing them. As a small business owner you likely don’t have that luxury, and probably spend more time on computer issues than you’d like (or ever imagined you would when you started the business).

So, it’s always nice when a bit of software comes along that can make your life just a little easier, and it’s even nicer when that software is free. DriverMax is just that type of tool. It scans your Windows computer, automatically checks for more recent driver versions, and identifies and installs missing drivers for unknown devices in your computer. It also enables you to make a backup of all existing drivers for easy restoration if required.

Why update drivers? Without up-to-date drivers your computer may be sluggish and perform less than optimally. Obsolete drivers may even leave your system vulnerable to security holes that were identified and fixed in later versions.

With DriverMax, you get a list of everything that needs to be updated along with specific information about each available update, and can manage the entire process. (Note that the freeware version limits you to two downloads per day, which should be sufficient for most users.)

Watch a video of DriverMax in action on the CNET site and read the Editor’s recent 5-star review. You can download the free program from that page as well. With your computer drivers taken care of, you can get back to the more enjoyable parts of running your business.

This Small Business Tip from PaySimple offers one more way to automate and accelerate your business.
