    Driver Uninstaller (DDU) / Cleaner made for Display Drivers.(NVIDIA/AMD/INTEL)

    Display Driver Uninstaller is a driver removal utility that can help you completely uninstall AMD/NVIDIA/Intel graphics card drivers and packages from your system, without leaving leftovers behind (including registry keys, folders and files, driver store).

    The AMD/NVIDIA video drivers can normally be uninstalled from the Windows Control panel, this driver uninstaller program was designed to be used in cases where the standard driver uninstall fails, or anyway when you need to thoroughly delete NVIDIA and ATI video card drivers.

    The current effect after you use this driver removal tool will be similar as if its the first time you install a new driver just like a fresh, clean install of Windows. As with any tool of this kind, we recommend creating a new system restore point before using it, so that you can revert your system at any time if you run into problems.

    This tool act similar to what Driver sweeper do + the extra mentioned above.

    If you have problem installing older driver or newer one, give it a try as there are some reports that it fix thoses problems.


    RECOMMENDED USAGE :

    -The tool can be used in Normal mode but for absolute stability when using DDU, Safemode is always the best.
    -Make a backup or a system restore (but it should normally be pretty safe).
    -It is also recommended to put the DDU folder in your antivirus/protection software exclusion list.


    -You do NOT need to uninstall the driver before using DDU.

    - I would like to gather feedback from you guys. Tell me if it was success or not.
    Make a backup or a system restore point , DDU does massive changes to your files / registry

    -For people with driver problem, if this tool gave you any success into fixing some issues your are currently experiencing, please share your result.



    Keep note that NVIDIA/AMD did not have anything to do with this, I do not work at or for NVIDIA/AMD and they should not be held responsible for anything that may go wrong with this application.


    Requirement:
    -Windows Vista SP2 up to Windows 10 2004 (19041.xxx May 2020) (anything higher is at your own risk)
    -NVIDIA, AMD, Intel GPUs
    -Also support basic Realtek audio driver cleanup.
    -Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 or higher

    DOWNLOAD :

    USEFUL TIP:

    To solve the infinite boot loop issue that some users are having when they select to go into Safe Mode, you must boot with the DVD/USB (Windows installation disk) in recovery with Command prompt and type :

    Option 1 (recommended) : bcdedit /deletevalue {default} safeboot

    If option 1 is not working,

    Option 2 : bootrec /rebuildbcd

    There may need to be some adjustment if you have a dualboot system. but if not , it should work correctly.

    Hey guys, I need someone help for something that I can't find info of (yet).
    Is there anyone with the AMD DCH driver and using the AMD radeon software from the Mirosoft store ?
    If so, I'll need to know the packageFullName. you will probably be able to find it with this Powershell command (elevated)
    Get-AppxPackage -name "*amd*"

    If I kind soul could help me on that, that would avoid some searching for me.
    Thanks in advance.

    AdvancedMicroDevicesInc-2.AMDRadeonSoftware_10.20.40011.0_x64__0a9344xs7nr4m.appx
    so the package name should be
    AdvancedMicroDevicesInc-2.AMDRadeonSoftware

    Great app! I've noticed a few things not removed.
