I am having a few computer issues (I have posted two of them earlier) and want to run a driver cleaner. I have created a Restore point and am ready to run the cleaner. Do I check all of the drivers the cleaner wants to address? The list includes:

AGEIA - PhysX
ATI - Display
Creative - Sound
Microsoft - Mouse
NVIDIA - Chipset
NVIDIA - Display
Realtek - Sound

I have an ASUS A8V Deluxe MB, brand new Hannspree monitor, Logitech wireless mouse and keyboard, and Radeon 9250 video card.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Why would you like to remove all these drivers? If, for some reason,there are drivers that you wish to remove then you can simply uninstall them in device manager.

I guess I am not sure what to remove and what to leave. My understanding of the driver cleaner is it would evaluate my hardware, determine the driver needed and recommend what to remove. I am not versed enough to know, just by looking at the driver name, whether it is the right one, an extra one or the like.

Based on what you are showing it looks like you will remove the drivers that run the components for the board. You will wind up with a lot of missing drivers that you will have to re-install.

AGEIA - PhysX
ATI - Display---------Dis play driver
Creative - Sound------part of sound
Microsoft - Mouse-----probably the controls for your wireless mouse
NVIDIA - Chipset------main board drivers
NVIDIA - Display------as it says, display
Realtek - Sound------- and more sound.

You have 7 topics going including this one since Dec 14th 2009. That becomes very confusing for us to even attempt a resolution. You would have multiple helpers given multiple advice where 1 topic advice could very well alter what is done in another topic.
