Guru3D Driver Sweeper 0.4.5

Guru3D - Driver Sweeper is a fast tool to remove driver leftovers from your system. It's very important to remove your drivers on a proper way, because driver leftovers can cause problems like stability and startup problems. You can use it if you want to update/remove drivers from your system.

The change log for this release is:

1) New: Multilanguage support.
You can now add your own languages for G3DDS.
How to add more languages:
Open the languages.ini file. If you open it you
see a sample of the translation into Dutch and Polish.
Copy one translation and paste it in the same
file. Rename [Dutch] or [Polish] to the language you want
to translate. Finished translations can be send to:
DriverSweeper@Guru3D.com
2) New: Buttons to add and remove everything.
3) New: Parameter '-Quit' will Quit the application
after drivers have been cleaned using parameters.
4) New: It's possible to delete C:NVIDIA.
You can enable this in Options->Miscellaneous.
It's no problem if you have Windows installed
on a different drive then C:.
5) New: Display warning message before cleaning.
You can disable this in Options->Miscellaneous.
6) Fix: Disabled Remove buttons if nothing is selected.
7) Fix: Deleted and Not deleted in Logs weren't
always working properly.
8) Fix: Directory of executable wasn't properly
selected if you opened G3DDS using another
application (Like Total Commander and FTPRush).
9) Fix: Realtek Audio cleaned under weird circumstances
a file from Realtek LAN.
Thanks to nCaine for notifying.
10) Updated: A lot of optimalizations are done.
11) Updated: Removed some unneeded code.
12) Updated: Creative and Realtek Files & Registry fixes.
13) Updated: Files not deleted (In use, for example)
will be removed at next reboot.
You can disable this in Options.
This also means it is now possible to properly
clean drivers without booting into Safe Mode.
After using the official uninstaller of the drivers,
you can use Driver Sweeper and reboot your PC.
14) Updated: Options rearranged.
15) Updated: Added Dutch translation.
16) Updated: Added Polish translation.

Cool - I didn't realise this existed, and as you now have to pay for DriverCleaner I'll definitely take a look at it.

... this is weird. I'm trying to download it, but after I agree to the user contract, etc, click the download button, it boots me back to the main page..... :mad:

Anyone else experience this yesterday/today? :confused:

Working here atm - I downloaded using the Europe server. Make sure you don't have any Java/popup blockers preventing the download starting.

I'll give it another shot when I get home. I even tried the European server, same thing happened. I was thinking Java/popup blocker as well, but it always gives a message when it does that at the top of the browser. I might try adding it as a "trusted" site if nothing else works.

Found the problem, my Symantec client firewall was enabled, so I switched it off for a sec and got no further problems. It helped that they had this right below the download button:

"Note: If you have problems downloading Guru3D - Driver Sweeper, please try to stop using your download manager and avoid right clicking on files. Also, check your firewall settings, because some mirrors may require that you do not block the HTTP referrers. "
