There are always a couple of false positives. File is clean and can be used with confidence that no Virus is present.
Would the rename of Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) to Multi Driver Uninstaller (MDU) be an appropriate choice? Awaiting feedback.
You are known for Display Driver Uninstaller, everybody knows it by that name specifically as it where a brand. Changing that would make a lot of people confused. Guru3D is synonym for graphics cards, yet we do procs, motherboards, SSDs, gamer perf review and on and on.
My 2 cents, stick to the current name mate
Display Driver Uninstaller or DDU is as well known and respected name, why change it? However it does make some sense if you are serious about expanding your software.
I'd also keep DDU because it's a respected and well-recognized name, and only change it if you notice a big influx of users using it for sound cards making you change dev priority.
Supporting all of those realtek driver variants that come with extra software depending motherboard model or laptop enabled features will be a herculean task, as they can differ quite a bit from vanilla ones.
The SB cleaner is very welcome, beware that for some old cards such as Audigy 4/2 (that still work with recent Audigy Rx W10 drivers, same processor), removing drivers can be tricky depending on order, because their services must be stopped before removing drivers from the hw manager, else, a bsod will occur.
@Wagnard I suggest doing them both. Just keep 'em coming separated and implement ddu code into mdu to have the same updated gpu cleaning, meanwhile, you can expand mdu as much as you like when you have the time and feeling like making the effort win-win scenario
Thanks for the input I had the same thoughts.
There should not be a problem with BSODs if cleaning in Safemode.
As for cleaning all models and each different app, will do with time. For the moment I concentrate on the main driver removal.
While it is not a bad idea, it will be just too hard time consuming for me to maintain theses 2 codes. I prefer only 1 source.
Got the black screen twice cleaned in safe mode then installed normally. Something wasn't right with the installs as it seemed to go ok, then a few seconds later it sounded like it was trying to install more drivers, that's when it black screened.
Had to use a restore point and abandon DDU to avoid this.
Cleaned version of 398.82
Win 10 LTSB 2016
If you have still the logs within the DDU folder, you can send them o me via email : email@example.com
Keep the DDU name, everybody know that program now by ''DDU'' now, changιng the name will be confusing...
And DONT make 2 seperate programs, like someone suggested..
The problem reported some post behind regarding leftovers after using DDU is fixed in the latest release (V188.8.131.52). Thank for your continuous effort!
P.S. DDU is a brand now, no need to change it.
Well it still works.
DDU could be both Device Driver Uninstaller or Display Driver Uninstaller.
Though Display Driver Uninstaller for the full name works just as well since it's usually the primary use of the utility even if it expands into other software whether it's Audio, Input or other drivers since it's already the known and established name for the software now.
If you need a test subject for SoundBlaster, here I am.
I have a X-FI Titanium HD
Just PM me!
Thanks for the offer, I'll ping you when I hit the need of information and testing.
Windows 10 17134.228 - DDU 17.0.91
After clean and reboot in safe mode, as soon i enter the windows the windows update driver installs again.
Did it twice, Wagnard can you check?
Did you tick the tickbox in the option to prevent that?
Nope, this is a new option? found it.
i'm a old ddu user and it's the first time that i have to check that box.
Thank you, ticked the box and all good.
