Whats the best way to install new drivers? I see some people using Driver Cleaner, and some people just installing over the exsisting drivers and also just using Add & Remove programs and then installing the new ones ?

Uninstall using Add & Remove programs. Reboot. Install new drivers, enable SLi, reboot. Change SLi to multi-GPU rendering mode. Play :)

I always lose the ability of profiles if I uninstall from add / remove

I'll have global and nothing more.

I always uninstall, reboot in safe mode and use DC, then reboot and install. Been working great that way for centuries.

It only screws up if you don't know what you're doing or don't follow the instructions. I've switched between NVIDIA and ATI cards with DC and have not had to reinstall Windows.

Agreed!
It works like a charm for me. Never had one problem with it.
I think you are right when you say people should read the instructions of the program and follow them!
I'll bet some people are removing the nForce options in DriverCleaner when removing the nVidia graphic drivers, or staying connected to the internet.

It depends on what you are removing. If you are only messing with the video driver the Nvidia filter is enough.
