    haha

    I'm looking for a program that will remove every trace of an ATI driver....I had a fair bit of problems with that a while ago. and ended up reformating :D


    Thanks

    I use 'driver cleaner pro' it does the job pretty good
    but i reccomend giving 'driver sweeper' a go, you can get it from Guru3D and its free

    Use none, they all suck. AMD and Nvidia give you their respective uninstall managers for a reason. 3rd party programs like these only cause problems, as driver sweeper has in the past for me (totally rooted my windows install)

    Agreed, uninstall with supplied application.

    I also boot in safe mode and delete the drivers from the C:\ ATI/Nvidia folder.

    OP: What problems have you been having? I used to use driver cleaner (there was a free version a few years back) obsessively, but ever since I got a new ATI card I've just been installing over the top (so to speak) - instalers are alot cleverer these days it seems.

    CCleaner does a good job. Use the ATI/NVIDIA uninstaller first. then reboot, then run CCleaner.

    Yeah, That i'm considering. I usually use CCleaner for most stuff. But will give it a try after i've used the developers tool.
