Remove all those hidden devices…

Computer booting up slow? Too many device drivers installed in the last 3 years? With no idea where that device is today? Well, that driver might still be getting loaded…

  • Start->Run->cmd.exe
  • set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1
  • cd \windows\system32
  • start devmgmt.msc
  • View->”Show hidden devices”

Uninstall/delete all grayed devices one by one (sorry!)

Click -> Delete, and yes the screen will refresh and you’ll have to scroll to the next one again … you would think they could do a ctrl-select more than one, but no …
