WinZip Driver Updater is one of the many helpful software products this well known company has created to help the average PC user. Like many other PC driver updater software products, WinZip’s version is designed to be very easy to use. For the most part, it does the work for you.

The software scans your computer's major system drives and peripheral devices to see if any of their drivers are out of date. The process takes a few seconds, and the application does a good job at finding the major drives that need to be updated. The software is then able to locate and install the new drivers in just a few minutes. (The time it takes to update the drivers varies depending on the size of each driver and the number that need to be updated). WinZip Driver Updater may not be the most powerful PC driver updater software on the market, but it is one of the easiest to use and most reliable of the products we reviewed.

WinZip Driver Updater offers all of the tools you will need to scan your hard drive and update old drivers and to keep a backup of your old drivers. Since it’s not a guarantee that a new driver will work like it’s supposed to, having a backup can be a lifesaver. Along with a backup feature, you will also find a quick-restore option that lets you restore multiple drivers or one in particular. This is ideal for people who prefer to update all their drivers at once and those who'd rather update them one at a time.

WinZip will not give you the location of the new driver, which can be a bit disconcerting for some people. However, anyone who has been around for a while will know that WinZip is a very well know company that will do everything it can to ensure the best possible results.

This PC driver updater software was only able to find about 62 percent of the outdated drivers we ran tests for; these drivers were primarily Intel and Dell drivers. WinZip was able to find 13 of the 21 out-of-date drivers on our test machine, and was able to capture the major drives that needed updated. The scan literally took about 30 seconds to complete. Both the free and paid version of the application returned the same results.

WinZip Driver Updater scans your entire system and peripheral devices to make sure that everything is up to date and running properly. There are very few areas of your PC that it does not scan for new drivers on a daily basis. This PC driver updater software is also maintained and updated on a regular basis. The day after we installed the software, an update was ready to install; the quick update is a good sign that the company keeps the product up to date with the latest drivers.

This PC driver updater software implements a variety of security measures to ensure that your personal information is kept secret. WinZip uses a firewall to protect all of your personal information such as your credit card number to ensure that no external eyes see your information. The company's privacy policy is clearly linked to at the bottom of every page on its site and contains all the information you would expect to find. Every driver you download has been approved by WinZip and is guaranteed to be malware free.

You can contact WinZip in a number of ways. The easiest and most effective is to simply call the company and talk to a sales rep or tech expert. Like many other companies, the primary means for obtaining help is through an online form where you describe the problem you're having and wait for a response. Along with the basic help options, you will also find a large knowledgebase, FAQs page, new subscriptions and other helpful tools to help answer any questions you may have.
