USBOblivion: Erase all traces of old connected USB Drives from Windows PC

16 Comments

  1. I faced no such problem with my Seagate external drives on Windows 8. If you are facing issues, you may use its ref backup file saved in your Documents folder, to restore the old deleted traces.

  2. another good insight into where entries are hidden. actually a couple of years back I finally realized there was ultimately no way to maintain a system which was updating it’s time stamps and logs. from then on I did the following. from a fresh install I add all my products, scripts and hacks from an external without daring to go online. I then revert to this backup once per week having saved new data to external adding it immediately upon restoring to the install, then backup again and repeat every week. no other way, corporate method.

  3. how can i check that this software (usboblivion) is already run on my pc or not? I also want to remove the history of that software that its never be used in my pc….is it possible?

  4. Is it possible to trace a usb connect if I was connecting it awhile I was booting from boot cd with no Internet connection?
    Is it possible that in the next time of the regular boot some one will get a notification of this event?

  5. hi i used the tools but after restarting the traces can be found in
    HKLMSYSTEMCurrentControlSetEnum Registry Tree

  6. Lost the ability for AnyDVD and AutoRun to work with my SATA DVD/BR drives. Tried to reinstall the .reg files, gives permission error. The apps behave like the drive isn’t there. VLC can’t play them any more either.
    I will try to divide and conquer sections of the reg file. Any hints what sections might be involved? I don’t see any references in the reg file to D: or F: drives.
    Mountpoints? Muicache? Autoplay Handlers?
    I also tried System Repair, no change.
    Currently running Win10 installed on top of Win7.
    It seems that most of the garbage is USB related.
    Thanks

  7. My phone wasn’t recognized by Windows 7 so I ended up in UPDATE DRIVER SOFTWARE window (search for driver software in this location).
    Everytime I tried a location, it remembers the location.
    How to clear the history of searched locations?
    Thanks anyway!

  8. Can’t someone just use system restore and the old registry will have all the usb info in it or does this get rid of system restore usb info
