Name: Double Driver

Website: http://www.boozet.org/dd.htm

License: Freeware

Descrption: Double Driver is a very simple and useful tool which not only allows you to view all the drivers installed on your system but also allows you to backup, restore, save and print all chosen drivers simply and reliably.

Double Driver analyzes your system and lists the most important driver details such as version, date, provider, etc and offers you the chance to update to the latest version. All drivers that are found can easily be backed up the application and easily restored at a later point in one go.

Note: The app comes in a ZIP format. According to PendriveApps the app will run portably. However don't know what it leaves behind.

Thanks to whoever picks it up Smiling

Too many bridges you can burn
Too many tables you can't turn
Don't wanna live my life in the real world


I am just waiting for the authors permission.

Windows 98 users

Windows 98 users would love something like this... No offense intended -- I would have loved something like this back then. And, maybe as recently as XP, but in much less importance. Now, it seems that when I install Windows 7, it just picks everything up automatically, and updates for drivers come in via Windows Update. It's pretty sweet, it's like Microsoft finally figured it out.

What I (think I) need now is something that will remove a driver. I can't find where to do that in Windows 7. I think my USB drivers got messed with, and I want them gone, so Windows will automatically reinstall them (and hopefully fix the problem). As it is now, it drops USB mass storage connections including flash drives and hard drives, but my keyboard/mouse works fine... B-/

RE: USB Drivers

Try Uwe Sieber's DriveCleanup. It removes usb devices that aren't plugged in from the devicemap, allowing reinstallation of the drivers. To remove the drivers, I don't know of any freeware program that will do it, but a few commercial programs will (I don't know which ones). Below is the readme for the version I have, it worked well in Windows 7 RC0.

USB scrub

Have you tried USB Scrub by Nexcopy? Free and does pretty much what you are talking about?
