    Yes - I think so, I don't recall if I ever tried it for Chipset drivers.

    I probably did at one time - or perhaps it's predecessor Driver Sweeper

    The screen shot came from the trexxy site - it shows Premium.
    The free version doesn't' have all the bells and whistles (monitor, auto update...)
    but it will clean up manually.

    I think you already found this, but I'll post a link in case anyone else wants to download the ad-free installer.

    I was curious when you said you i grabbed the add free version from there forum, so I poked around trexxy.com
    I saw a link, ad-supported installer, on the regular download page and investigated. The page describes Third party offers made by the ad supported installer.

    Third party offers | Treexy

    Down at the very bottom of the page is:


    Advertisement free alternatives
    The easiest way to get rid of any advertising is to buy a license from the Treexy store. All purchases come with an ad-free installer and allow you to automatically update the program, after the initial installation, without the need to download an installer ever again.

    For those users that do not wish to see any recommendation during installation we have the following installers without any ad-support:

    •Driver Fusion 2.7

    If you click on the ad-free link on that page, it downloads a different installer package with a different exe name: driverfusionsetupnoads.

    Thanks for making me look,

    Bill

    Please show me one TechNet article which says that Sysprep does not work in Windows 8.1! I hope the possible readers of this thread ignore this totally nonsense, untrue and invalid comment.

    Sysprep works extremely well in Windows 8.1. The Sysprep GUI (Sysprep dialog, see screenshot below) is deprecated, not disabled; it will no longer be updated and upgraded but is still included in Windows 8, 8.1 and even in Windows 10:

    (Screenshot: Sysprep GUI in Windows 10 Tech Preview.)

    The Sysprep GUI can only do three things and can't handle answer files as it can when run from command line:
    1. Restart computer in Audit Mode
    2. Restart computer in OOBE mode
    3. Restart computer in OOBE mode generalizing the installation (removing all hardware specific elements)

    Even if the GUI would no longer exist, the same three things coul easily be done with Sysprep from command line:
    1. Code:
      sysprep.exe /audit /reboot
    2. Code:
      sysprep.exe /oobe /reboot
    3. Code:
      sysprep.exe /generalize /oobe /reboot

    Sysprep is an important native Windows tool. You can be quite sure it will continue to work, even in future versions of Windows.

    Some valid Microsoft TechNet articles about Sysprep, all of the below articles apply to Windows 8.1:

    oh i took the thing to mean it did not work im my case i don't think it will as i no for sure it was a upgrade on the store and not clean install, not sure why the key is gone but it is and i never did anything to it,my win 8 was a upgrade and then i did the update to win 8.1. i suppose i could try it but i heare if it fails you need to do a clean install.

    If and when Windows is upgraded, you'll find those registry entries in Windows registry. In order to be able to upgrade these must be edited.
    OK Kari can you tell me if i would be able to use it here is my regedit of that area.
    please get back with me thank you kind sir.

    If you delete the UPGRADE key shown and selected in your screenshot (left pane), then go back one step to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup selecting itand delete the DWORD Upgrade in right pane (your screenshot shows you are one step too deep to see it), and finally check that both of the DWORD values shown in the below screenshot are 7, you should be able to run Sysprep:

    Exactly as I already told in this post. If Sysprep fails now, the reason is not the upgrade but something else.
