remove traces of USB drives from the registry USBOblivion is a small (portable) utility that will erase all traces of USB-connected storage devices (including iPods) and CD-ROMs from the Windows registry. The registry data stores details including drive manufacturer, last connected date various other details which will be completely removed after running USBOblivion. By default, the program starts in a simulation mode, allowing you to preview the results of the cleaning. If you want to proceed, you can run the process again, this time checking the "Real clean" option. USBOblivion also comes with an option to create a registry backup file of the removed entries, so that in case you run into problems, you can undo the cleaning operation. The app will only remove entries for Mass Storage devices, it will not interfere with your USB mouse, keyboard, wireless adapters etc. Copyright

Good software to get card reader up 4 stars by arend463 Feb 09, 2021 (Read all my 2 reviews)
My built-in SD card reader in my laptop was no longer working correctly. SD cards from my photo camera were no longer recognized. After I removed the USB traces with USBOblivion, the card reader works fine again. show Review details
It works for those who need it 4 stars by jbauer68 Apr 26, 2012 (Read all my 4 reviews)
This app works exactly as described, I tested it against a Nirsoft app, which actually shows all the currently registered USB entries. After I ran Oblivion, all the references to Mass Storage devices were gone. But here's the thing: Why would you want to remove these entries? They are not easily accessible as, let's say your browser history or recently used docs. It would take an above-average user to even find this information (e.g. by using the Nirsoft USBDeview tool) and I can't think of any reason where this information would be of any value unless you are the subject of a corporate espionage investigation. Removing those few entries from the registry will make zero difference as far as performance is concerned (unless, of course, you have a habit of connection dozens of new USB drives every day). Nonetheless, if you have a need for this, the program will certainly do the job as described. show Review details
