I used this for a long time, then migrated to an alternate product that did the same thing. I came back to GhostBuster because it was more useful - I got to know which of the hardware was ghosted and to which group it belonged. All in all, I found it more useful, more informative and less abrupt... I had time to review the hardware before I removed the ghosts. An excellent software indeed.

A truly awesome utility, I use it regularly when I change hardware.
It would get 5* from me if it flagged the entries that should not be removed in some way.
It would also be good if it could deal with the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter [sic] fully; it currently removes the ghosted version, but I still get a # when I activate the adapter again (currently on #8).

It already flags some of these items (those are marked as service).

Opera does not support ClickOnce X
To install this application, save it and then open it. Opening it directly from Opera will not work correctly.
