Yes you are totally right! Il get on it when I get home later on today. Would the regular Add/Remove process in the CP do it for me? Or do I need to like use one of them drivers cleaners? If yes what’s the name? link it if possible.

Thanks

Yuck dont use a driver cleaner....

Use add/remove programs

CCleaner is a great program for junk files/and reg issues

I would use that as well.

Yup, just go through Add/Remove to uninstall the drivers. Then use a good proggy like this to get rid of any leftover crud from your drivers: Driver Sweeper. I also like to use CCleaner. It's great at cleaning up the registry.
