This also means the changes aren't that big but it's definitely worth upgrading.

Driver Sweeper is a fast tool to remove drivers from your system.

It's important to remove your drivers in a proper way, because driver leftovers can cause stability, startup and other problems. You can also use it if you want to update/remove drivers from your system.
