    Anybody else have opportunity to use this program?

    From the website posted above [thanks lookin4yuh ;)]:
    "Driver Cleaner is a program which helps you to remove parts of drivers that are left after uninstalling the old drivers. The program is for ATI and nVidia drivers. First you need to uninstall the drivers from the control panel, then reboot. After rebooting, run the program. If you really want a good description of what steps you should take, then you really need to read the readme file included in the zip file and installation as it contains a detailed step by step description."

    Has gathered high marks: "Driver Cleaner" received 6/6 points from Wintotal, which means it gets the Wintotal Award. Wintotal is a very popular german website about Windows and Software Stuff.

    I use it quite often. After you uninstall drivers there is always something left behind. Driver Cleaner finds and removes the traces. I use it mostly for catalyst driver upgrades.

    Be forewarned to totally clean the drivers you have to disable system restore. It focuses on Nvidia and ATI drivers. It works.
