About USBDeview

The following tool is called “USBDeview” developed by Nir Sofer (2006-2013 – all rigts reserved), a tool that will allow you to see active and inactive USB devices (ghost USB devices) installed in your Windows computer by their driver name and perform a number of operations on them like uninstall, disable, disconnect, disable+enable and others. It will allow the removal of any USB device driver previously installed in your system so that you can start fresh with a device installation, thus, preventing COM port conflicts and driver update issues.

    Sitios como este son los que necesita la comunidad hoy en dia. Muy lejos de lo que hacen muchos que lo que hacen es campaña publicitaria engañando a la gente con miles de saltos para hacer publicidad.
