Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) V18.0.0.5 Released.

Requirement:
-Windows Vista SP2 up to Windows 10 October 2018 update 1809 (17763.xx) (anything higher is at your own risk)
-NVIDIA, AMD, Intel GPUs
-Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 or higher

Changelog:
-New requirement starting from this version ".NET Framework 4.5 now required."
Reason: Recently with Windows 10, we now see DCH drivers and theses drivers come with their control panel from the Microsoft store App.
To be removed, some library that were only available for 4.5 is now forcing us to update too.
The downside is the end of support of Windows XP.
-Nvidia,Intel,Realtek DCH driver removal is now supported.
-Additional Realtek audio cleanup.
-Removal of new subkey found in HKLM/Software/nvidia corporation/installer2/ (Drivers)
-Removed "CharSet:=CharSet.Unicode" and "MarshalAs(UnmanagedType.LPWStr)" from "Function CM_Get_Device_ID" that were giving unexpected results for retrieving the DeviceID with .NET 4.5
-(DCH)Removal of the Extension device class and their components

Known issues:
-Latest Nvidia RTX card need some work. (I do not own one)

Recommended usage:
-You MUST disconnect your internet or completely block Windows Update when running DDU until you have re-installed your new drivers.
-DDU should be used when having a problem uninstalling / installing a driver or when switching GPU brand.
-DDU should not be used every time you install a new driver unless you know what you are doing.
-DDU will not work on network drive. Please install in a local drive (C:, D: or else).
-The tool can be used in Normal mode but for absolute stability when using DDU, Safemode is always the best.
-If you are using DDU in normal mode, Clean, reboot, clean again, reboot.
-Make a backup or a system restore (but it should normally be pretty safe).
-It is best to exclude the DDU folder completely from any security software to avoid issues.
Note: If you have issues for downloading the file, it could be one of your extension interfering with our hotlink protection.

Here is an application from 1 of my partner that we recommend.
It is a useful tool that may help you update outdated drivers.
