3. When the driver process is complete select the drivers you would like to clean.

If you wish to clean multiple drivers simultaneously, simply check the box "Select multiple cleaning filters".

Then click the arrow of the drop down box to select desired drivers.

You should end up with a list in the box on the right hand side as shown in the example below.

4. Simply click the Start button to begin cleaning.

You will also need to verify that you would like to continue with the cleaning.

Click Yes to continue or No to return to the driver selection.

In certain cases, depending on the driver you are cleaning, you may be required to restart into safe mode.

If this is the case simply follow on screen instructions.

This ensures that all driver traces are removed.


5. The cleaning process takes around 30 seconds to 1 minute depending on the complexity of the driver being cleaned.

Once the cleaning process is complete, you can click Show Details to see what has been cleaned on your system. It's also advisable to restart your system before installing a new driver although not required.

Drivercleaner also includes a bonus utility called driver version check. This is designed specifically for ATI and NVIDIA graphics cards.
