    Hi,

    I have a Hauppauge WINTV PVR-150 which has faulty drivers, and whenever I try to remove/uninstall, Windows still has an entry for it in the Device Manager. No matter what I do, I can't get it to revert back to the "new hardware found" wizard, even if I physically pull out the card and put it back in.

    Is there any way I can somehow wipe all memory of the card completely from Windows? Would some registry-cleaning software help me?

    I just want to start from scratch with the card.

    Clear the drivers out of the drivers cache folder.
