    My only concern is should I hide my true identity? A costume maybe?

    0iD: Plus weeing in it every now & again does it good
    scaryjim: 10" is just a little large to hold comfortably in one hand, which makes it a lot harder to tap, swipe and generally interact with.

    Driver Cleaner - unfortunately it now costs $9.99, I'm sure it used to be free, http://www.drivercleaner.net/

    Re: What is the program that removed old graphics drivers

    Driver Cleaner Pro is All I have ever used and it has worked fine

    If you go back on some of the sites that store old versions of software I'm sure you could still run it for free

    Re: What is the program that removed old graphics drivers

    I've used Drive Cleaner Pro (v1.5 Build 14, free for that version) and it worked well.
    I have the setup file here ;-) - about 3MB zip.

    Re: What is the program that removed old graphics drivers

    Definitely either of the 2 above would work fine. Personally, I prefer Driver Cleaner Pro (The free version), but have also used Driver Sweeper without negative consequences.

    Oh, and in your OP, you meant decrease performance right???

    Re: What is the program that removed old graphics drivers

    you could get driver sweeper "less than legally" (if it requires payment) but i wouldn't advise this, especially if you may be needing support with the program direct from the scripters.
    A friend of mine has used it and fixed his graphics problems to date, seems to work fine.
