    Guru3D has released a new Version 1.5.5 of the free Driver Sweeper driver file residue cleanup utility. The changes in this version include an updated interface and improved Nvidia file cleaning.
    It's great for cleaning up little left over bits from graphic drivers (both types) to chipset drivers. An excellent little utility..

    Guru3D Driver Sweeper 2.5.0 Download Released




    Driver Sweeper is very easy to use. You only have to select the drivers you want to clean up.
    The best way to clean drivers is to first uninstall the drivers using the official uninstallers, reboot in Safe Mode and run Guru3D - Driver Sweeper. However, rebooting and not going into Safe Mode also works, but can cause some files not to be cleaned.

    What can it be used for ?
    The current supported drivers are NVIDIA (Display and Chipset), ATI (Display), Creative (Sound), Ageia (PhysX), MMouse and Realtek (Sound).

    All the settings are saved in an ini file. Nothing is created in the registry, so it's possible to use it as a portable program. Log files can be saved to the harddisk and viewed as well. You can find the logs under the Tools menu.

    System requirements:
    The Guru3D - Driver Sweeper is fully tested on Windows 2000, XP, Vista and Windows & 7 RC. Both 32-bit and 64-bit versions are supported.
    New in this release:

    Replaced cog icon with a new icon.
    Character to seperate registry keys from registry values in the analyse list.
    Some layout changes.
    Increased default window size.
    Update notifications, auto update has been removed.
    Directory wildcard search for custom filters.
    Added Norwegian translation. Thanks to Magnus GranĂ¥s.
    Added Arabic translation. Thanks to Awadh.
    Updated:

    Improved registry cleaning methods.
    Improved directory cleaning methods.
    Rewritten the readme file.
    Rewritten the help file.
    Internal libraries.
    Improved Creative - Sound cleaning.
    Thanks to Karol C. Improved ATi - Display cleaning.
    Thanks to several people for supplying additional entries.
    Improved NVIDIA - Display cleaning. Thanks to theGryphon.
    Fixed:

    Rare crash using backup.
    %WinDir% variable not working properly.
    Command Prompt after reboot in rare circumstances. Potential crash. Special thanks fly out to TwL for making this release possible.
