    Re: Debloating NVIDIA drivers (Found a very good method)

    Have you got a link to a web page rather than a video? I always struggle to follow instructions in videos compared to written text.

    Also what's the main benefit of debloating? Drivers are large downloads sure, but I only need to keep one copy live and storage and ram are both plentiful these days - I only have 180mb taken up in mem by the driver model, control panel and graphics card engine.

    I don't think there is a web page just a YouTube video..

    I found that my PC is more responsive using the debloated drivers vs the standard Nvidia one, and also seems a faster load into windows too.

    I have written down the steps he provides on the video as follows :-

    Use TCPview to show the the processes running in the background and packets of information that are sent from your PC when using the default Nvidia driver install.
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sys...nloads/tcpview

    Download and run DDU Display driver uninstaller, remove all the drivers for Nvidia using this program.
    https://www.guru3d.com/files-details...-download.html

    Now run NVCleanstall,
    https://www.techpowerup.com/download...-nvcleanstall/

    Pick install best driver for hardware or manually select the version you want.
    Press next

    Pick the components you want to install from the list, I personally pick display driver, PhysX and HD Audio via HDMI.

    Press next

    It will then download only the components needed and then it will make a new Nvidia driver package ready to install.

    Pick the installation tweaks you want to the package, I pick disable telemetry, perform clean install and install Nvidia control panel.

    Press install To install the debloated Nvidia driver or show in folder if you want to install it later or if you want to cut and paste the folder somewhere else.

    And after install restart PC.

    Now Use TCPview to show the the processes running in the background and packets of information that are sent from your PC when using now debloated Nvidia driver install.

    I found it removed all processes running from Nvidia, and my PC runs better without them.
