What is Driver Pro?
Driver Pro is a legal program that is supposed to help you update your drivers on time. Needless to say, that you need to register it in order to use the program to the fullest, but first and foremost the question is whether you really need it. Naturally, since Driver Pro is not a computer malware, it does not enter your system surreptitiously, but it is possible for the program to arrive bundled with freeware. In case you have installed Driver Pro along with third party applications, our general piece of advice would be to remove it from your PC.
Where does Driver Pro come from?
As it has been mentioned above, Driver Pro can be installed bundled with freeware. Nevertheless, Driver Pro is actually an additional product available for download PC Utilities Pro website. You can check out its promotional page at pcutiliziespro.com/driverpro.php. There you will be told that Driver Pro has access to over 200,000 drivers, and can help you update the latest Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP drivers in no time. You can buy Driver Pro for $29.95 or $14.95 depending on the version, and then all your driver-related problems will be solved.
However, that is not all to this. Driver Pro can also be found available at such third party file hosting websites as Cnet or Softonic, and although it is not illegal to distribute this program like that (after all, it will not be fully functionally until you register it), you need to take into consideration the possibility of Driver Pro being bundled with freeware.
What does Driver Pro do?
If you download the application from its official site, then it really does what is says – your computer is scanned at a lightning speed and you are offered to update your drivers. Needless to say, that you would need to pay for the full version of Driver Pro for that, however, instead of updating all of your drivers manually one by one, Driver Pro offers to take care of it all for you automatically.
On the other hand, if Driver Pro arrives bundled with freeware (that is, if you download it NOT from the official website), then it could be that other potentially unwanted applications get installed on your PC as well. It might expose you to some security risks which should not be overlooked, so if you are not an avid Driver Pro user, we suggest removing it along with all the other potentially unwanted applications from your system.
How to remove Driver Pro?
Since Driver Pro is not a malicious infection, it should be enough to remove it via Control Panel. However, if you think that there might be other undesirable applications installed on your PC, then you should scan the system with a licensed antimalware tool and if any dangerous files are detected, remove them at once.
