How to Remove Unwanted Device Driver from Your PC With Driver Fusion

Device driver leftovers can cause instability, startup and other problems to your computer. So, all old device drivers and linked registry entries thoroughly removed from your PC, especially if you have recently upgraded your hardware and installed new drivers. Unfortunately, removing old and unnecessary device drivers from a PC isn’t an easy job.

To assist you in uninstalling of old system drivers in the easiest possible way, I’m recommending a free application called Driver Fusion. Its uncluttered user interface guides you step-by-step in the removal of the different kind of device drivers.

Driver Fusion supports a wide range of system driver vendors including AMD / ATi, ASUS, Intel, NVIDIA, Microsoft, Logitech, Creative and Realtek.

The following steps are recommended for the best way to clean the drivers from your system. 

- First, use the official uninstaller(s) of the driver(s) you want to uninstall.

- Second, reboot your PC in Safe Mode, then run Driver Fusion and select vendors list, and then choose what to delete.

- Finally, download and reinstall latest device drivers from respective manufacturer’s websites.

Important Note: Before removing driver files, do a complete back up of your drivers. If you don’t know how it is, you may please read this article.

Driver Fusion can be downloaded from developer’s website for free (For Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 required .Net Framework 4 for installing the app).
