Is Driver Sweeper a safe/good program?

#1Ame_no_MurakumoPosted 9/10/2013 7:31:04 AM
I've installed many driver updates without ever uninstalling previous ones, because I heard that the CCC does the uninstalling for you. However, I've also heard that even with that, it still leaves remnants?

I also don't want to end up messing anything up. >_> Help would be appreciated.

Yes, just make sure you don't accidentally remove non-graphics drivers.

I didn't, but everything turned out fine. Didn't see your post until after I analyzed/cleaned/reinstalled AMD 13.8 drivers.

This guy knows nothing. Him and TP are a nice couple by now. How's your love life treating the two of you?

It works just fine in normal mode. As TC has stated.

no probs

not using Driver Sweeper and just reinstalling over drivers works many times, too.

but Driver Sweeper in safe mode is the superior method

I'm pretty sure he's right about it working better in safe-mode. It's far from necessary these days, anyway.
