I’ve seen a lot of people having serious issues because they didn’t sweep their computer for any leftover driver files. Some driver manufacturers (especially AMD) fail to create uninstallers that completely remove drivers. Some older driver files can get “tangled” with newer ones and lead to serious problems: Windows crashes, game crashes, sound problems, video corruption etc.
One piece of software that I use and recommend is: Treexy Driver Fusion. Treexy Driver Fusion can sweep drivers from all major manufacturers: AMD, Nvidia, Intel, Realtek, Nec, Microsoft, Marvell, Jmicron, HP. Everything from GPU drivers to printers.
How to Use Treexy Driver Fusion for removing AMD drivers
The Old Fashion Way
Note: It is recommended that you do all these steps in Safe Mode.
Why do I need to sweep drivers?
After uninstalling a driver there are always some files left on the machine that could damage the next driver you install or even Windows itself may fail.
What does a driver sweeping software?
A driver sweeping software removes all files (dll, inf etc.) and registry information that the uninstaller missed or failed to remove.
