Uninstall Drivers in Windows® 7
Are you aware of the reasons for uninstalling device drivers in your computer operating on Windows 7?
Windows 7 is the latest operating system from Microsoft. Windows 7 comes with many advanced features to make a computer more stable and secure. Windows 7 also extracts maximum performance out of the hardware components on the system. Drivers are the communication link between the hardware and the operating system installed on a computer. Drivers help the hardware understand the requirements of the operating system and also help the operating system understand the results produced by the hardware devices. Without drivers none of the hardware installed on your computer operating on Windows 7 will work. Graphics drivers, Ethernet drivers, sound drivers, display drivers, etc. are some of the common drivers that you have to install. Drivers come as executable files that can be installed very easily. Drivers can be uninstalled from the system using the Device Manager in Windows 7. However, you must remember that the concerned hardware device will not work after uninstalling the drivers.
Let us talk more about the reasons for uninstalling drivers on Windows 7 based computer system:
- Corruption of drivers
- Driver conflicts
- Inherent issues within drivers
Corruption of drivers

Malware are known to have the capabilities to modify or change the drivers installed on a system. Corruption of drivers will cause malfunction of the hardware device and in order to solve the problem, you have to uninstall the drivers.
If some of the drivers installed on your computer are in constant conflict with each other, then the conflicting drivers will have to be uninstalled.

Driver clashes can cause many problems to the working of the system, such as blue screen error, sudden system shut down and recurring system restart.
