It's very important to remove your drivers on a proper way, because driver leftovers can cause problems like stability and startup problems. You can use it if you want to update/remove drivers from your system.

How to use ?

There are two methods to use Driver Sweeper. Both methods achieve the same results. This method is always able to clean all files.

  • Use the official uninstaller(s) of the driver(s) you want to uninstall.
  • Reboot your PC in Safe Mode.
  • Use Driver Sweeper and select what to clean.
  • Press the clean button.

This method will delete remaining files upon reboot (if deleting failed).

  • Use the official uninstaller(s) of the driver(s) you want to uninstall.
  • Use Driver Sweeper and select what to clean.
  • Press the clean button.
  • Reboot your PC.

You can add items by pressing the name of the driver you want to clean and then the ">" button, or to double click on the driver name. You can remove items the same way, but then press the "<" button instead of the ">" button.

More drivers can be selected for the same cleaning process.

What can it be used for?

The current supported drivers are NVIDIA (Display and Chipset), ATI (Display), Creative (Sound) Realtek (Sound), Ageia (PhysX) and Microsoft (Mouse).

All the settings are saved in an ini file. Nothing is created in the registry, so it's possible to use it as a portable program. Log files can be saved to the harddisk and viewed as well. You can find the logs under the Tools menu.
