    As we all know, the graphics companies, AMD, NVIDIA, are in the habit of loading their drivers with junk, such as firewalls, up-daters and so on. These will slow down any OS and can frequently cause crashes.

    Simply uninstalling and attempting a re-install is time consuming, not to mention difficult, since much of the junk doesn't uninstall.

    A good friend has put me onto this free routine, which will automatically, uninstall all traces of graphics drivers, including Registry entries and folders.

    The Windows generic drivers kick in and the card drivers can be re-installed, rejecting the extras.

    Personally, after running the program I used SlimDrivers to re-install. I was careful to choose custom install and remove the ticks from everything except the driver itself.
