When you uninstall driver and other programs, most of the time you have to restart your PC.
Is there any reason you don't want to restart your PC?
You may complete your works and then restart your PC.

Restart PC will take some time, I think if I find the driver in the PC,I can remove it instead of restart PC.

Normally even if you remove it, normally you need to restart your PC.
I advise you to perform this action when you have some free time, and you won't use your PC.
The restart might take some time but not too long.

Hello

Thank you for your question and reaching out.
I can understand you are having some queries related to avoid Reboot of PC after removing of Drivers.


Minimizing restarts when updating file-backed drivers :
Prior to Windows 10, all kernel-mode drivers were backed by the system's paging file. As a result, a driver binary could be overwritten on disk even while the driver was running.

Reference : https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/install/avoiding-system-restarts-during-device-installations

To improve performance, starting with Windows 10, most non-boot-start drivers are instead backed by the driver binary on disk.
