SPAMfighter Introduces DRIVERfighter as a Tool to Increase Computer Stability and Boost Performance

DRIVERfighter Searches, Downloads and Installs the Latest Driver Updates for PC's

BOCA RATON, FL -- August 08, 2012 -- SPAMfighter (www.spamfighter.com), a leading provider of user-friendly anti-spam, anti-virus, and optimization software solutions for computers, tablets and smartphones utilizing Windows, Mac, and Android operating systems announced today the release of DRIVERfighter, a driver update program that searches for and installs the latest driver updates available for PC's.

Drivers allow computer hardware and software components to interact and communicate with each other effectively. When drivers become out-of-date, they can cause system instability, computer slow down or crashes. Downloading driver updates can be a daunting task; while some software programs automatically alert users to updates, many must be checked manually and individually, which is both time consuming and puts the user at risk of automatically downloading malware or malicious software without the individual's knowledge or consent.

Malware infections can have serious and far reaching consequences. "Anytime someone else gets to decide what software, what code is running on your computer, all the information on it and everything on the network that is connected to it, is at risk," says Daniel Peck, a research scientist with Barracuda Networks' Barracuda Labs. A survey conducted by Kapersky Labs in 2011 found that half of the businesses that had infections due to malware suffered a data loss as a result.

"Out-of-date drivers affect the stability of your PC and can slow down its overall performance," said Henrik Sorensen, SPAMfighter CEO. "Our driver updating software, DRIVERfighter, quickly shows you which drivers require updating, installs each one for you saving you valuable time, while protecting you from downloading unwanted malware along with your intended updates. You are both protected and more productive."

DRIVERfighter utilizes its database of over 85,000 entries from 100,000 device manufacturers to ensure PC's are automatically receiving the most recently released driver updates from a single location, with new drivers continuously being added to the database. A free scan of DRIVERfighter is available to show which drivers need updating at http://www.spamfighter.com/DRIVERfighter/. A one-year license of DRIVERfighter is offered at the introductory price of $19.95. DRIVERfighter:

  • Quickly scans your PC. DRIVERfighter detects outdated drivers, then provides download and installation instructions.
  • Improves hardware functionality. The latest driver updates from manufacturers often contain improved or new functionality for components.
  • Increases stability and performance. Updated drivers improve performance, making PC's less prone to slow down and crashes.
  • Increases productivity. Save time rather than manually looking for each individual available update for devices.
  • Keeps you safer online. Finding and downloading drivers manually on various sites risks downloading malicious software into your PC.
