It seems Driver Fusion has gone into money mode. The new download will not remove all the found registry software unless you buy the "Pro" version. I am going to suggest using the old standby... Driver Sweeper 3.2.0. http://www.techspot.com/downloads/4266-driver-sweeper.html

Don't forget to check your video card manufacturer's website for promotions. Sapphire, for instance, at various times offers the paid version of DriverCleaner for free if you are a registered owner, and I can't imagine that they are the only ones.

It's still free...but it leaves a couple of registry items that only the "paid for " version will remove. CC will remove them.

CCleaner (Crap Cleaner), it's another must have free tool, has a registry cleaner, garbage file cleaner, secure disk wiper (essential for non TRIM supporting SSDs as well), and a few more nice features.
