What is dsmonitor.exe?

Part of DriverScanner Monitor by Uniblue Systems Limited

What is it?

Uniblue DriverScanner is a software application designed to check the PC's currently installed drivers against a database of available drivers for a number of software and device hardware applications. If driver updates are available the software will automatically download them from the manufacturers web site and install them.
Description of dsmonitor.exe from Uniblue Systems Limited
Old drivers may cause a range of problems, from diminished hardware functionality to conflicts and system crashes. Although drivers are available for free and can be updated manually, identifying outdated drivers can take a long time. Moreover, pinpointing just the right driver from the manufacturer's website, downloading and installing it can be laborious and technically risky. Built with simplicity in mind, DriverScanner scans your computer to provide a list of drivers that need to be updated. With single click convenience, DriverScanner will then safely install each update on your PC. Updating drivers is not just an important part of PC maintenance but also a first line treatment for hardware problems and a reliable way of increasing your computer's stability and performance. Produced by device manufacturers, drivers are essential for Windows to communicate with computer hardware.
