Cloned install - Removing unwanted drivers
I have cloned my notebook windows install (Windows 7/ Dell) to a generic desktop PC.
Once done, I have manually removed all DELL custom software within Control Panel->Program and features, however I have noticed that some DELL specific drivers have been left in. For example once I have installed a Bluetooth dongle in the PC desktop, Windows was attempting to use DELL specific BT drivers.
As the cloned desktop PC randomly (say once every ten days) crashes with a BSOD (124), I'm wondering if it could be that some DELL specific drivers are still running, compromising stability.
Is there a secure way to cleanup all unwanted drivers?
