|Unfortunately, Chily Device Driver Backup, Driver Magician Lite and Double Driver all show only one file per device (an inf file) which is less than device manager displays.|
Perhaps I should explain the situation this particular machine is in. It has been "repaired" by the installation of a new motherboard and without removal of any of the previous drivers (worse, the previous board was VIA, the present one is Intel). Consequently, there are at least 2 instances of every device type showing in device manager - disk drives, floppy drives, drive controllers, IDE channels, keyboards, display adapters, network adapters, processors, etc. (There are 50 items under "System devices").
I know the only guaranteed way to change a motherboard is to format and start again, but that isn't an option. A couple of things like the VIA 4in1's and the graphics drivers should have Add/Remove uninstallers that should get rid of most of the files and registry entries, but the real problems are with everything else. I'm happy to simply "Remove" the PnP monitors (which device manger claims have no driver files) and the superfluous PS/2 mice, which only use the same files as the real one, but what about everything else? Simply removing something from device manager doesn't actually get rid of any files and I have no idea what it does regarding registry or startup entries, if anything.
