    Windows Assesment Console result

    I ran the Windows Assessment Console driver section, and recorded these results.

    As you can see there are 9 multiple drivers, and 4 unnecessary drivers.
    What is the best way to approach/correct these issues without me regretting something?

    I have not verified this works with W10, but it may allow you to remove the drivers

    I am having wet feet about removing these 13 drivers.

    That said I just ran a DISM command: Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    It bothers me that it completes so fast ~2 minutes.

    The command that I am looking at using to remove the drivers is:
    Dism /image:C:\test\offline /Remove-Driver /driverem1.inf

    I think what got me hesitant was the was reading:
    Warning Removing a boot-critical driver package can make the offline Windows image unbootable.

    P.S. don't know why my cut and paste keeps inserting the red face so disregard that please. Maybe that's some kind of premonition ?

    I'll vouch for DriverStore Explorer, too. New version just out recently, too.

    Here's the download link for latest copy at any time. Right now that's version 0.9.10

    Ok downloaded from that link. Once open I see that I can right click any driver and delete it, however I don't see any of the drivers that the Assessment Console is calling multiple or unnecessary.
    Here is what I see when I run the Driver Store Explorer.Click image for larger version.

    You must run the program as administrator for it to work properly. Click the button at the right middle that says "Restart as Admin." Then the program might show you something a bit more interesting. I see duplicate Nvidia drivers right off the bat. At 400+MB a pop, getting rid of them can make a big difference. Try the admin route and see what happens then.

    Choose Select Old Drivers and then Delete Package.
