    TechPowerUp Releases NVCleanstall v1.8.0: Take Control Over Your NVIDIA Driver Installation Techpowerup.com

    TechPowerUp released the latest version of TechPowerUp NVCleanstall, our lightweight utility that gives you complete control over your NVIDIA GeForce driver installation, letting you pick and choose only the components you really need, and filtering out those that you don't, including those which aren't presented as an option in NVIDIA's own driver installer.

    The latest version 1.8.0 improves performance with driver signature rebuilding, which previously took minutes, and now only takes a second or two. On fresh installations, NVCleanstall also prevents Windows from overriding your driver selection, by automatically downloading a driver from Windows Update. When your Internet connection drops, or you are working offline, the app no longer shows an error message and simply allows you to refresh when the connection is restored. The NVCleanstall background check can now determine whether you are using a desktop or a mobile platform, and suitably suggest the best driver. Among the interface fixes include Virtual Audio being made a dependency for Shadow Play (without which the latter would break); and a handy command-line argument to automatically install NVCleanstall.

    The change-log
    • Greatly improved performance when rebuilding the driver signature, takes only a second now
    • While NVCleanstall is running, Windows Update will be blocked from automatically downloading and installing any graphics driver
    • When no Internet connection is detected, fail gracefully and add a "Refresh" option to first screen
    • When NVIDIA Control Panel App download is selected, but no Internet detected, show a notification, with retry option
    • Background version checker can now distinguish between desktop and laptop
    • Virtual Audio is now a required component for Shadow Play
    • Added component info for NvModuleTracker and FrameView SDK
    • Added command line switch /install, to install NVCleanstall on the local machine. You may pass additional InnoSetup scripting arguments after /install

    Will this mean modding drivers for newer MXM cards will be easier for older laptops?

    Does anyone remember guru3d forums filled with hate threads about nvcleanstall being a rip-off of nvcleaner from guru3d?
    Fast forward now, most of them uses nvcleanstall by techpowerup.com

    I do remember and stopped going there due to toxicity of the community. Only surf NBR and mydigitallife forums and xda developers and that's it
