    What version are you using of my app?
    also if you can pastebin this command from "devcon dp_enum" it would be great.
    This command will list all oem from your systems.
    The devcon.exe is created when you load my app. just do this command from a command prompt.

    Thanks a lot for your help / time.

    http://pastebin.com/1DeHEqce Hope it helps.
    (This is after cleaning. I can't do much because I get a bluescreen shortly after, so technically it's after a reboot)

    I'm using 3.6.1 .

    The thing I reported first hasn't happened again though. These current issues may be driver related. I'm trying to install the latest 3.8 driver, but I get a bluescreen and other errors while trying.

    But if those things help you solve the first issue I reported, that'd be great :D

    Good ! thanks a lot. But with those BSOD it is either the driver or something on the system.
    Is your system in Crossfire btw?
    A clean windows installation could be wise.

    -DCOM cleanUP from registry.
    -more log details (mostly the result of devcon dp_enum)

    When I run the uninstaller, it says cannot find devcon in x64 folder.
    Using win8 x64.

    Also, does the utility need to be run after the driver is manually removed from add/remove list?

    You do not need to uninstall anything. It does the job for you.

    For the error, normally with v3.7 you should see a folder x64 being created on start. Close all instance of the application and try again. This is a know issue if by mistake you opened up the application 2 times and closed one before cleaning up.

    A question about using it, sorry if it has been asked before.

    How am I supposed to use it exactly ?
    I pick AMD/Nvidia then click uninstall -> Restart Computer -> Install new drivers ?

    By the way after I uninstall the driver, Windows automatically install the standard VGA Driver. Is that supposed to happens ?

    Yes. After you reinstall newer driver, you can re-enable the Internet connection.

    The standard vga driver is a confirmation that all went well and is the expected results

    -More Physx cleaning from registry
    -Cleaning Shield Streaming from registry.
    -Cleaning some more stuff from the folder zone of the registry

    AMD only
    -Delete all drivers files in windows directory and sub folders.
    (this will come in next version for Nvidia)

    Great job on the tool Wagnard it cleans up all files included in the 12.11 Modded Legacy Driver, and it does that in 10 to 20 seconds. Also, while System restart is justified, I would like you to include a question in gui asking "Would you like to restart" for users who just want to continue using their computer.

    I will add a checkmark for disabling the auto-reboot. but mentioned as Not recommended.
    or maybe ask the question you proposed before the cleaner start Cleaning with a warning that it is not recommended and black screen may occur etc....

    I like the second option because the first is easier for users to ignore.

    Release 3.9.1

    -Do not force the reboot and instead ask for it before starting to CleanUp.(as suggested by dellon)
    Also explain the reason why it is highly recommended.

    This update is good as the question is placed at the beginning so it allows Users to leave the uninstaller to do it's intended task then come back and reach their system cleaned. However, while this update is good I think you should change Yes to Restart and Cancel will act as no in which the Utility does the rescan automatically then exits. Also it would be great if you add a shutdown feature in which the driver uninstalls without ever attempting to rescan. The reason I'm recommending this is for Users who wants to install a New Graphic Card. This way drivers from previous Graphic won't conflict with the new installed Graphic Card.

    Also thanks for the work you put into making this tool available for everyone as Iv'e had a better experience using these than any other driver cleaner.

    Ill see what I can do. This will required a bit of work as this wont be a default message box. So I will have to manually create one.

    One thing that bother me a little is a button named Restart could confuse users into thinking the system will restart right now but in fact, it will restart after the cleanUP.
    Thanks for suggestions

    Btw do you know a bit a VB.net ? if so ill be happy to welcome you to the team.

    EDIT : Oh I think I got an idea hope you'll like it once you see it ! :pipe:
