: : I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW TO REMOVE THE VIA BUSMASTER FROM MY COMPUTER.

Found on the VIA site..


Q: How do I uninstall the VIA Busmaster driver and reinstall my Windows default
drivers?
A:To uninstall our drivers you must run the .exe file. You will be given 2 options:
Install or Uninstall. Upon choosing Uninstall, the driver will be removed and
Windows will automatically restore the default drivers. After uninstalling, the
Windows 98 Device Manager may say that the VIA driver is still installed.
Although the device manager shows the VIA driver to be there, it could have
been removed. This is how to check to see if your default Windows driver has
been reinstalled:

1.go into "Run" on the Windows startup menu and type in "regedit"
2. go into
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/system/CurrentControlSet/services/class/hdc
3. then look inside one of the subfolders for the "port driver"

Shown next to the "port driver" it will show "EDSI_506.pdr". If it shows VIA
instead, then the VIA driver has not been removed . Even if the Windows default
driver has been restored, it still may show the VIA driver in the Device manager.
This means that you are using the default MS drivers but Windows fails to
recognize it. This is a minor issue with Windows 98.
