    Powershell to remove device driver

    I'm trying to write a powershell script to look for a specific device driver and uninstall it.
    I'm trying

    $device = Get-WmiObject Win32_PnPSignedDriver | select DeviceName,InfName| where {$_.devicename -like "*Realtek PCIE*"}
    Because for some reason when i select InfName by itself, it returns nothing. but when I do it alongside DeviceName it gives me the inf. I then want to take this inf name and use it in

    Remove-WindowsDriver -Path "c:\offline" -Driver "OEM1.inf"

    so I can totally remove the driver on start up. Even though I try disabling the device, it always manages to reenable itself.

    Hello @JiminyBillyBob,

    You could try using cmd prompt!

    To find out if you definitely have the correct name first, type this in a cmd prompt and press <ENTER> . . .

    wmic sysdriver get name

    What is the full driver name?

    I hope this helps!
