Is there a site or program that color-codes drivers? Something that will tell me what is essential for Windows, what is in place for my hardware, and then what is extra?
I downloaded the Autoruns utility and it is great at showing me what starts up, but it also lists many drivers that are also being loaded that I'm not sure are needed (stexstor.sys, pcouffin.sys, elxstor.sys, hardlock.sys, etc.)
I used USBDeview to delete the information from old flash drives that had been plugged and unplugged from my computer
(BTW, Driver Verifier Manager reports that no unsigned drivers were found.)
I have boot-up set to verbose so I can see the entire list of drivers loading up, but I don't want them to if they are not needed.
I appreciate your help!
