I'm not really sure where to put this so I posted it here, hopefully this is the right place. Last year I built my own computer and now I wanted to switch from AMD to a GTX 680 video card. I went to driver sweeper and it says that it is no longer avaliable to download. So are there any other safe software programs that I can download to get rid of the AMD drivers and all fragments of them like driver sweeper, or will I have to re-install Windows 7?

If you're paranoid about it I suppose you could always just do a clean install of Windows, but Majorgeeks is a reputable host site.

paranoid no...safe yes. Some sites are safer than others to download from and what I wanted to know is if this is a site that's safe to download from. It sounds like it is.
