Nasty File Remover
Whenever an application is removed from your system, it can leave traces that can affect your overall performance if a lot stack up. Nasty File Remover is a simple utility designed to remove the leftovers after the removal of graphic card drivers, be they Nvidia, ATI, Matrox, Creative or S3.
Step-by-step guided process
The application has been developed as a wizard, so in order to take advantage of its features it's enough to follow a few steps. This comes in handy, as it prevents you from removing files that can further damage your system.
Manually input file location
First of all, you have to select the driver type and the folder where the unnecessary files may be found. You can change the path whenever you want, so it's no problem if the app doesn't detect the correct folder.
There are two available options in the main window, “Quit if only one version is found” and “Select all files after scan”.
Lets you install a clean driver
Press “Next” and you're ready to initiate the scan. It takes a while to complete the scan, but afterward you should be ready to remove the found files, as well as to create a BAT file, TXT, HTML or ZIP.
Nasty File Remover comes in handy especially when trying to install a new version of a specific driver, in which case it's recommended to use the application only after uninstalling the old version. This way, you can make sure that no leftovers are still on the system, allowing the new drivers to work properly.
To end with
All in all, it's pretty obvious that Nasty File Remover can be loaded on any computer, old or new, and it works on all Windows versions. Plus, it doesn't affect performance in any way and, what's more, it's really effective and performs a clean install of your new graphic driver.
