    What do you recommend?

    I was wondering what you would recommend as being the best Driver Cleaner for Vista 64 Bit.

    I used to have one but since formatting I lost it and can't remember what it was

    Hello Chris,

    Other than Disk Cleanup in Vista, the free Wise Disk Cleaner and CCleaner are great programs.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Hi Shawn,

    Many thanks, and all these are ok to remove my graphics drivers? would using the Disk Cleanup in Vista suffice for this?

    Thanks again

    Chris

    Sorry Shawn, just realised I did'nt mention what drivers to cleanup

    Oh no, not for that. You should be able to uninstall your graphics driver from Programs and Features. If the driver is not listed in Programs and Features, then you can uninstall the driver from Device Manager under your video device.

    Great ok thanks Shawn

    Its just that I always heard other people saying that removing the graphics card drivers that way is not enough, some files get left behind, and I wanted to be sure that by doing as you say, that that would be enough

    True, some files could get left behind, but that is the safest way of uninstalling drivers.
