What development? The thing has been the same program for years... the only changes I have seen were its UI but everything else runs the same...

I have only actually used it once....and I don't think I needed to. I've never had a problem with just uninstalling using add/remove programs and then installing the new drivers...

Exactly Add/Remove...and if you need to go into the registry manually the odd time...oh well.

Driver Cleaner's Cab cleaner could come in handy though, if you needed to remove some drivers that were integrated into the install. After all, Add/Remove definitely wouldn't touch those.

I don't think DC is totally useless.. I have seen people recommend using it before, and it helped.

Did they rewrite the program in .NET code or something? Not sure why they would do that though..

In my case, I rewrote NVTweak in .NET only because I lost the original source code, and didn't feel like writing it over again in the same language. Might as well learn a new one right?

I need to learn ASM, a low level language. High level programming languages are pretty easy, but they do seem to run much slower.

Must have to pay for that new lame-ass site design.

I don't like Driver Heaven anyway.
