cant uninstall new drivers and install new ones

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
i went to driver sweeper like 6 times and rebooted and they're still here. Even deleted the c/ati folder.

man im furious.

i got a 23 inch monitor and im posting in 800 x 600

driver sweeper wont even update itself without failing.

now i cant install any drivers CCC wont open. It says theres no ati drivers.

I went into safe mode with driver sweeper and it says that everything was uninstalled. Then I went to normal mode but its still here.

Not sure on how to repair that other than scanning the registry for inactive entries with something like Ccleaner. To be honest, if you are simply upgrading drivers to a newer version don't use driver sweeper. It's use is recommended far too often on OCN. ATI/AMD don't have the best drivers, I'll admit that but they upgrade perfectly fine from old to new if you simply install over the old.

You know you're supposed to uninstall with the Express uninstall in the Control Panel first..... RIGHT? Than you uninstall with Driver Sweeper or better yey, DON'T UNINSTALL WITH DRIVER SWEEPER AT ALL. It causes way to many problems like this one....

Driver Sweeper does not cause problems, users do. If you're ever in a service field, you'll find 99% of errors is USER error.

How so? I mean there is absolutely NO ROOM for User Error in a UI as simplistic as Driver Sweeper's. I have never heard anyone say...

Yep my sound stopped working after I swept my ATI drivers because I Accidentally CLICKED REALTEK.

User Error is virtually impossible with Driver Sweeper....
