What is Easy Driver Pro?
Easy Driver Pro is another fake PC optimization tool, which may affect your computer in a negative way and trick you in buying its license. The developers of this program claim:
“Easy Driver Pro was designed to scan and locate the necessary drivers for your PC. The easy to use user interface allows even a novice to use Easy Driver Pro without difficulty.
Using Easy Driver Pro will not only save you time and money, it can keep you from installing the wrong driver for your computer.
Easy Driver Pro will identify your PCs hardware devices and will find the most up to date drivers for them.”
In fact, users might believe that this application really works. Once inside, it initiates full computer's scan and displays a list of outdated drivers that have to be either removed or updated. Unfortunately, these results may be fake and may include non-existent drivers, or drivers that are working properly and certainly do not have to be removed. In addition, this scareware may display fake alerts claiming that one or another driver is useless and is slowing down your system. The main purpose of such alerts is to trick you in buying full version of Easy Driver Pro. Even though this questionable application is able to detect outdated drivers and might delete some of them if you buy the license, in reality the service is poor and does not accomplish its task properly. Most probably, you won't notice any increase in your system's performance. For this reason, it has been categorized as a scareware that seeks to swindle people's money for its service. Be careful and think twice before buying the license as you may not only loose your money, but also reveal your credit card details to hackers. EasyDriver Pro virus is a clone to Super Optimize. Thus if you have already downloaded any of them, remove it without hesitation and rely on a reputable system tool instead.
