I agree that DW is a piece of ****, but when you try to uninstall, it asks to make even more registry changes. I don't think so. Now I just want to get rid of it and cut my losses. ($40) Does any one know how to clean this garbage off of my computer?
It makes me suspicious about what other changes it has made. Does it phone home at night?
Why would these people cheat you when you have already paid them?
Why would they make it difficult to uninstall?
Please reply to this thread if you know answers to these questions.

I don't know how I got Driver Whiz on my computer, but I did. I too was like many of you on this forum. I have a program on my computer called CC Cleaner. I use it to just clean my computer up. On the tools section, there is an option to uninstall programs. It worked on Driver Whiz!!!!! I no longer have it!

if you know the date you purchased driver whiz you can try a system restore to a few days prior- that should get rid of it but make sure you havent added any new programmes after driver whizz or system restore will remove those too
I reported this programme over a year ago on here = it is so sad that its still available to purchase when it clearly doesnt work

Here's their trick. Right go to uninstall, double click, a box appears (change, repair, remove) you hit remove and a big box appears telling you can get 50% off or some ***, simply close that. As soon as you close that, the uninstall wizard box appears SO FAR TO THE LEFT (AND AT BOTTOM) THAT DEPENDING ON YOUR MONITOR YOU MIGHT NOT SEE IT!! I have one of those really big wide rectangular screens and also a laptop, the laptop never shows as much onscreen as my PC does. So I saw this little corner of the box and dragged it out and sure enough it was the uninstall box, after that it just took seconds.

WHOEVER WROTE THIS WORKS FOR DRIVER WHIZ !! and is A TOTAL LIAR !!!

The post is clearly intended to disseminate FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) about the best and most comprehensive driver tool on the market. Either that or, as per a previous comment, the post was made by someone not qualified to cast judgments.

Purchased Driver Whiz to try and fix a CD driver problem. It told me I had an out of date driver for my printer. I had it update the driver for the printer and .... voila... now the printer no longer works. (The printer was working fine prior to Driver Whiz). By the way, it didn't help with the CD problem either.

I to can not uninstall driver whiz. Using normal processes uninstall is not available. Has anyone figured out how to get it off of the computer. I simply need help. Can anyone help.

Now wait a minute. A simple question is asked: how can I uninstall Driver Whiz. Whether it's malware junk or developed by God Himself; one has the right to terminate this tool.
It doesn't do anything for my computer. Unless I cough up dough. I don't want to, so I want to get rid of it. An honest reply, please.

Driver Whiz has the most comprehensive database of drivers available on the market today. While the user interface may not appeal to all types of users out there, I find it useful in my daily tech support activities.

you do understand that when you install most programs the registry is edited to link DLL's, EXE's and the other files the program needs to run right?

Maybe included in the uninstall string is a setting that deletes or edits the changes that installing did? Ever think of that one smart guy?


So I downloaded the program and did a few snapshots.

WOW I AM RIGHT!!!! HOLY ***! Some *** (l)user making *** comments about something he has no understanding has yet again been proven wrong! What a freaking surprise.

Please take your computer out in to the street. Lift it as hight as you can over your head. Then smash it in the street.

Please never buy another computer again as you are to ignorant, lazy and *** to run one let alone use one.

I wish you a crappy day (l)user.
