Open your C driver scroll over to programs scroll down to it and hit the delete key.

Use this program at your own risk as its likely to bork your system. Happens all the time. Espcially since he started putting adds in it.

I can only speak for myself but, Driver Sweeper is totally safe to use if the following is true:

1> Do not use the link that some people post to Guru 3D. That is a WAY OUTDATED application. Use the link I posted to phyxion.net...the developer...and the latest version 3.2.0.

2>The past problem with Driver Sweeper had to do with Windows 7 SP1 installation. That was fixed/corrected over a year ago. The notice of that fix has been posted numerous times....why some people can't move on, I don't understand. The problem was adressed in version 2.8.5...as seen here http://phyxion.net/category/driver-sweeper-3.html

3>If you are still concerned, know this...Driver Sweeper (not Driver Cleaner, Driver cleanup, or any other program out there) has a restore feature to put back all it deleted.

I and many others use this program everytime I install new drivers....and have absolutely no problems.
