Nvidia Driver Cleaner software Recomendation?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey I need a recommendation for a driver cleaner, I have looked around and I feel that Driver Fusion will be my best bet. Is this what you would recommend?

I have a few questions so I use it correctly:

1) When I use driver fusion there are 3 NVidia choices I have (1) Chipset (2) Display (3) PhysX. Do I only want to select Display and Physx?

2) When I first uninstall the driver through the control panel remove programs do I run driver fusion right after or do I only want to use it in Safe Mode?

3) Would you recommend the paid version? It says it removed "All Traces" maybe this is a niche but sounds nice. It also has a protection thing that I wouldn't want running background processes.


Greatly Appreciate the feedback biggrin.gif

Tried using Driver Fusion, as soon as I tried deleting it said I had to pay. doh.gif

Then just make sure to use the 'clean install' option when installing your new drivers.

I have used this method ever since I got my 670 back in March and I believe works better than any driver cleaner could.

This.

The removal guide from OCN is easy once you get used to it. Driver remover programs can sometimes remove things it shouldn't.
