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It is a useful tool that may help you update outdated drivers.

I want to express my appreciation for the realtek driver removal feature/ I am sorry I can't donate or I would. I was struggling with sound drivers not functioning on an older board with ALC892 but now I have amazing sound and all the features in the original suite plus newer too using a DIY driver mod package. If anyone else has realtek issue I recommend this guys work without hesitation:

I have been following it for a while and its pretty rad, drivers are signed and its solves a lot of problems for people whose motherboards are no longer supported by manufacturer.
