When you upgrade your system hardware, Windows does not remove the driver files of the older hardware. Similarly, when you update your system drivers, older drivers files are not always removed. This leaves your Windows trying to load obsolete drivers everytime you start your PC, resulting in a slow and unreliable computer performance. Fortunately, you can use a free tool called Driver Fusion to safely remove such old device drivers from your system.
Driver Fusion is a Windows application that allows you to backup, restore and remove device drivers on your PC. It helps you to manage your devices and assist with a complete uninstall of older system drivers easly. Driver Fusion keeps your PC running smoothly with advanced system driver removal which even deletes those files, directories and registry entries that are left behind by the normal vendor uninstallers. By removing old device drivers before installing new drivers you will ensure that your PC will reach its maximal performance.
You can download Driver Fusion from the Treexy website. The download is a .NET application which can be used immediately after installing in Windows. It supports all versions of Windows starting from Windows XP. After installation, you can run it from its desktop icon. In the opening screen, you can choose a hardware manufacturer you want to scan the drivers of and then click on the analyze icon at the bottom. There are almost all the well known hardware vendors listed.
After taking some time in scanning your PC for obsolete drivers, it would display results in a list. It would show the name, type, source and location of the driver files and driver entries found on your PC. By default, all entries are selected for deletion. You can click on the bin icon at the bottom to delete the selected device drivers.
It is suggested that you first backup the device drivers before you delete them. Driver Fusion offers a driver backup feature under the computer category given near the top of the Driver Fusion window. Drivers from such backups can later be restored from the management section. In addition to backing up, restoring and deleting drivers, Driver Fusion also offers to backup and restore the desktop icons and resolution.

Driver Fusion would help you by completely removing older drivers before you install new ones. Driver Fusion can also help you make your PC faster by removing unnecessary obsolete drivers. Driver Fusion is not recommened for brand new computers as they should already be running at their maximal performance.
