While these instructions will help you to completely remove the graphics driver from your device, according to the author of the software, you should only use this tool when having a problem uninstalling or installing a driver or when switching GPU brands walmartone. And you shouldn’t use it every time you need to update the driver.

SHA1: 5280C2AFD23AFCA3A7710B3FE0509ED8504A93D7

Recommended usage:
-DDU should be used when having a problem uninstalling / installing a driver or when switching GPU brand.
-DDU should not be used every time you install a new driver unless you know what you are doing.
-The tool can be used in Normal mode but for absolute stability when using DDU, Safemode is always the best.
-Make a backup or a system restore (but it should normally be pretty safe).
-It is best to exclude the DDU folder completely from any security software to avoid issues.
