Open DRV File

The DRV file extension is used for hardware drivers in the Microsoft Windows operating system.

The DRV driver files are a fundamental part to guarantee the operation of the hardware attached to a PC since through them the operating system establishes the communication between the computer and the hardware components, such as the sound card or the modem.

Hardware devices connected to the motherboard of the PC regardless of the type of bus or cable, require driver files, hence the importance of DRV files.

DRV files are also used to install the necessary driver on the computer to run the hardware.

DRV files are bundled with other files to make them executable to facilitate proper driver installation.

DRV files contain information that is stored as commands and parameters, making it vulnerable to malicious modifications by hackers.

Windows by default brings universal drivers to make the most used hardware work, that is, video card, audio card, processors and others.

The above indicates that you should do a thorough scan of the DRV files with an updated antivirus.
