USBDeview is a small utility that lists all USB devices that currently connected to your computer, as well as all USB devices that you previously used. For each USB device, exteneded information is displayed: Device name/description, device type, serial number (for mass storage devices), the date/time that device was added, VendorID, ProductID, and more. USBDeview also allows you to uninstall USB devices that you previously used, and disconnect USB devices that are currently connected to your computer. You can also use USBDeview on a remote computer, as long as you login to that computer with admin user.
- You can now choose to connect a remote computer or external Registry file from the 'Advanced Options' window (In previous versions, you could do it only from command-line)
- Fixed to display an error message when USBDeview fails to connect a remote computer

A great utility, I use it regularly to clean old USB rubbish out of Windows. I'll use it in what I call precision mode to deal with a specific USB device or I'll clean out all ports and let Windows reinstall the ones that are still active (plugged in).
As with all NirSoft utilities, USBDeview is product that works as you'd expect. There's few software writers who know the internals of a PC and Windows as well as Nir Sofer does.

Works as advertised. Simple and effective. Only had one device no longer in use(external 6 in 1 card reader).

This is one of those awesome utilities that you never realized you needed until you found out about it.
I found like 5 devices that I have never re-connected to the PC whose entries were just sitting there taking up space. I just selected them and uninstalled them and it's like CCleaner for USB.
I have to do more experimenting. Hopefully this util will not let me do any actual damage while I'm tinkering. We shall see.
Very cool idea for an app.

I actually used this today to sort a PC that refused to recognise any new USB drives, why windows stores the amount of unneeded crap is does is beyond me.
Great program as are most from Nir.
