    Because of 7z-x64 sfx module, repackaged 32-bit driver won't unpack itself in 32-bit OS, manual unpack is needed

    Firstly, I would like to thank all of you for your knowledge, efforts, solutions and support.
    I don't post often, but I am daily visitor for news and driver feedback. Probably following since 2009 daily. Can't go wrong here.

    Sir Tj hasn't changed his display pic for quite some time now. hehe :p

    My sincere thanks to Sir Uker for this simple trimmer. It certainly helped in my case. Hence I am writing it specially for you :)

    Overwatch, Mafia 2 and 3 feels a lot fluid as compared to the default click and run downloaded driver (419.35)
    I don't have numbers to prove anybody. Apologies for that.
    But I can certainly tell that the minor stuttering in Mafia 2(1080P High) and 3(720P Low) has disappeared.
    Where Overwatch(720P all low, FXAA) used to drop to 120's during complex ganks, it hasn't dipped below 140. Also in the hero selection screen, it fluctuated between 130-135, now it stays at 150.

    I am running
    i5 3570K @ 3.8 + Corsair H45
    Gigabyte B75M-S
    Corsair Vengeance 2X8 GB DDR3 1600
    MSI GT 1030 OC (got a non-operational 970, 570 and 8800 GTS in the cupboard)
    Intel 330 120 GB SSD
    WD 1 TB EZEX
    Seagate 250 GB
    Corsair CX650M
    Zowie 2411P (Connected via DP)
    Windows 10 Pro 64 (Upto date)

    I don't game often as I did back then and neither I am justified with the current Nvidia Rates. (ATi Rage Pro 8 MB is the only Red team I owned. Green since then)
    I will be sticking to the 1030 for some more time. Besides, I do have some old titles to cope up with.
    And some titles are meant to be played again, only to find a different perspective or maybe nostalgic. Whichever convinces the time invested. hehe

    That is all. Thank you very much for taking time to read.
    Keep up the great work Sir Hilbert and all the active members.

    Love & Respect.

    Is it only me, or is NVSlimmer broken with 425.31?

    Hi there, guys.
    Long time no see.

    I just uploaded a new version of this thingie. Link in the OP.
    The only significant change is support (ie, elimination of a warning and proper display of a description) for a new module in NVIDIA's DCH drivers.

    Enjoy and as always let me know of any issues or suggestions.

    Cheers!

    Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for the useful tool. Now a question, I have an RTX, when I install a driver made by your tool, leaving selected only the required items, I can not activate the DLSS in the BFV, just the RT. Doing a test with a driver also cleaned of this topic: https://forums.guru3d.com/threads/430-39-whql-430-53-hotfix-clean-version.421390/, both RT and DLSS are active , should I enable some more options when cleaning the driver with the tool so that these features become active in my RTX?

    Thank you.

    Anyone tried if new version can completely remove telemetry even on new 430.xx drivers? In particulary this folders:

    C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\Display.NvContainer\plugins\LocalSystem\DisplayDriverRAS
    C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\DisplayDriverRAS

    Using NVSlimmer, I don't even have those dirs, and NVCP works.

    What's the correct way to use this tool with already installed vanilla drivers? I've done full uninstall using DDU, it works fine, but it's a bit tiresome, is there a quicker way?

    my instalation is simple
    run slimmer
    open driver
    check what you need, or dont check and instal as is if you dont have Turing (need NGX for full feature set )
    apply
    instal
    thats all and work without error
    i think in 99% no need DDU, DDU its great but not for normal situation
