For a guide , check : https://www.wagnardsoft.com/content/ddu-guide-tutorial

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It is a useful tool that may help you update outdated drivers.

Hi Wagnard, two questions:
  • Is there any particular reason for DDU not cleaning Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\Installer2... folder and its content?
  • Could be cleaned the Ansel stuff as C:\Users\(Username)\ansel\filters... too?
Thank you in advance and for all your great job. :)

Regards.

Thanks

Thanks, I do have an idea of what is wrong. It's the bcdedit command.
Appart from. This message, is everything normal. After ddu use?
Also, are you going to safemode manually or using DDU feature to do it?

Just to add to this one this release of DDU the reboot to safe mode option doesn't work fully. It reboots the computer but windows just boots normally and DDU runs and complains about not being in safe mode again. Selecting safe mode boot at that point just performs the same loop. It exits just fine if you like so it isn't a huge deal. Selecting safe mode reboot and hitting F8 on boot and manually selecting safe mode makes the process work as it should.
