Driver Cleaner and Registry Cleaner for USB drives

Recommended Posts

Hello, long time been away from this forum, by the way.

 

 

I would like to suggest an added feature under the "Tools" section about a driver cleaner for USB drives. I use a netbook at work and its very common for people to plug their USB flashdrives into my netbook and from time to time, I may have to get rid off those removable device drivers and have their Registry keys taken away to remove leftover traces as well. Would be a nice tool for intermediate to advanced users though that's why it should be on the Tools section and have warning messages by default.

 

Thanks.

I saw on some website about a portable application that deletes Registry keys left by USB drives just now and I'm aware of driver cleaners so it would have been better if CCleaner had these two additional features though

 

Thanks for the suggestion though.

This would be cool to have. Not sure how hard it would be to implement, but it would definitely help erase a few more tracks.

Yeah, I feel there is a need to get rid of orphaned removable device drivers and the Registry keys related to those. And maybe even a removal tool for orphaned drivers of disconnected Bluetooth devices.

 

Thanks for the welcome, Dennis.

It may seem unimportant to others, but I have a netbook I use a lot as well. Would be great to help keep the list of things from growing over time, & getting very long.

 

I have at least 6 flash drives I plug in sometimes, a drive partitioned into 3 partitions (Personal/Programs/Users) & other drives I connect externally to scan.

 

I second your idea.

The less orphaned/useless things left in my machine, the less I have to worry about. Features like this would be useful to those of us who connect a lot of removable stuff into our machines.

AHHH!!! USBDVIEW!!! completely freeware allows you to see disconnected and connected USB devices. Allows you to uninstall USB devices as well. Very effective! Google USBDVIEW!

Thanks for the suggestion, me1900.

 

I just think that additional abilities like those should be included with CCleaner for the use of intermediate to advanced users.

USBDeview is yet another great Nirsoft utility. They have some many great little tools.
