Access Violation when running Driver Sweeper 1.5.5

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So, I decided to use the latest Driver Sweeper for the first time and followed the instructions below exactly:

1. Use the official uninstaller(s) of the driver(s) you want to uninstall. - Succeeded.
2. Reboot your PC in Safe Mode. - Did this
3. Run Driver Sweeper and select what to clean. - Selected to only clean display driver
4. Analyse lists all the entries possible to remove, cleaning removes the entries selected. - Analysed and then it cleaned most files out but these 3 and I then got this message:



So I ended up booting into Windows and installing a newer driver and all seems ok, but I need to know why this happened for ease of mind..and because I really wanted a clean install and now I don't think I got one.

Can anyone explain why this might have happened?
Did some 'residual driver' try to load up when I booted into Safe Mode?

I can provide more details on my system/what I did based on your questions.

Thanks guys!!

I can't see what was left because the screenie is cut off.
But, yes, in safe mode, or without any driver installed, windows uses it's default drivers to run the video.

Do you guys think there may be an issue with these 3 not deleted files?

Edit: I just did check the System32 folder and confirmed they were replaced when I installed 169.25.

As for the default drivers it kept trying to load, when I checked in Device Manager (while still in Safe Mode), it was version 162.22. Maybe that is what came with my OS (I got my rig in 6/17/07)? ...or what was installed with the gpu?

I bought this rig, did not build myself so I am not sure.

A little more feedback pretty please!!!!
