nVidia's Detonator drivers are a superb piece of skillful engineering but have an inherent tendency to literally 'stick' with Windows. This can be judged by the fact that when you wish to update your Detonator drivers with the latest version available, and you uninstall the Detonator and begin to install the new version, Detonator stops saying that a previous version is still installed. Detonator R.I.P. comes to the rescue.
This free utility is designed to remove the remains of Detonator AFTER your have uninstalled the ânVIDIA Detonator/Display driversâ from the Windowsâs Add/Remove programs option in the Control Panel.
No installation is required, and the exe file can be run directly! To uninstall, just delete the exe file.
