ReviverSoft, an American software company, created PC Reviver (opens in new tab). ReviverSoft is a subsidiary of Corel, a Canadian software giant that bought the firm in 2014. The Corel-owned firm develops a broad range of PC optimization (opens in new tab) and security software programs with the “Reviver” brand plastered on most. 

ReviverSoft released the first version of PC Reviver in 2013. Since then, it has dropped several updated versions, including the latest release in 2021. We’ll review the latest version based on specific criteria, including pricing, features, customer support, user-friendliness, etc. 

Plans and pricing

PC Reviver is available on a freemium basis. That is, there’s a free version and premium version alike. The free version has fewer features than the premium one, so you’ll need to pay for the latter to make the most of the software.

The premium version (opens in new tab) of PC Reviver costs $43 for a yearly subscription for one PC. You can pay for it directly on ReviverSoft’s website through PayPal or a credit/debit card. It unlocks access to all the features we’ll show you in this review. 

ReviverSoft also offers a 30-day money-back guarantee for every purchase.

Features

Driver Updater

PC Reviver comes with a built-in tool to identify all outdated drivers on your PC and quickly install the updated versions. Obsolete drivers can affect the performance of your PC, and you want a tool like this to avoid that.

The driver updater (opens in new tab) compares your computer’s drivers against a database of over four million drivers to determine the outdated ones.

Driver Backup

You can not only just update your drivers. PC Reviver also enables you to create a secure backup of all your PC drivers and restore them at a later date. This feature is helpful because some driver updates can cause malfunctions. You’ll just need to restore the backup versions to avert the malfunction in such a case.
