    Something DM64 or DH64 .... ?

    If so, I think its because a process is holding it sometimes.

    I think its not always happening.

    Yea it's not always there sometimes it gets deleted and other times it does not.


    EDITED
    Found another bug. It seems ending and re starting explorer causes Windows Explorer to load incorrectly when using Windows 8. Thus users may run into problems such as menu disappearing in folders and icons disappearing.

    I can confirm. Will try to see why.


    V2.4 Released but it is not for this bug.

    Release 2.4
    AMD/NVIDIA
    Possible fix for cleaning the Driver Store when the oem are in the 3 digit (ex.
    oem100.inf)

    I ran into a problem when using the tool. It start cleaning
    then crashes after stopping Windows explorer.

    That's probably because the uninstalled didn't complete correctly.But i'm still surprised for a complete system crashed... should in theory not happen and simply tell you that the package failed to install.

    What is weird is that from 2.3 to 2.4 I didn't change anything to make the application crash after closing explorer.exe .
    But since there is 2 reports of this ill check this right away.
    If I cant find it, Ill give you a debug version that should show where the error happens (line of the code)

    For the explorer.exe I totally do not know why it is unstable when I call it from my application.... It maybe a windows 8 issue only. I dont know.

    EDIT: I think I found the problem. Will update soon

    EDIT 2 : Version 2.5 is up and *should* take care of the issue you had.

    This is a new one. It cant find a file. Got a good idea why.

    Btw I think I may found a way to fix the explorer.exe problem.


    EDIT: I found out why it crashed. its simple something I forgot to remove when I was testing for the explorer problem.

    THe cleaning has complete tho. it simply failed at the part to start explorer.exe
    Will upload a fix in the next minutes along with the Possible fix for Explorer.exe being weirdo.

    The application crash that happens after the cleaner stops explorer is now non existent. I'm not quite sure about the explorer bug though as I was working on something else. Anyways if I do notice it I will let you know.

    I did multiple test here and with V3.0 I dont see explorer.exe acting weirdo after restarting it. SO its fixed.

    Next version will correct a bug when we exit the application when cleaning is done: no effect on end users really, its just that I know it doesnt exit well.

    Changed the way I kill process (that is what fixed Explorer.exe too)
    More kill to some know process affecting the removal of Hydravision. ( I have identified them).

    Will release when its ready later today.

    That's great I will be awaiting your next build. The explorer bug no longer occurs on my setup. Tested twice when reinstalling windows 8 and several times during the use of Windows 8.
