Selectively delet drivers?

Is it possible to selectively delete drivers from the OS?
I suspect I have a rogue driver which the OS is going for every time as it's "the most recent" and I was wondering if there was a way of simply deleting it. If you choose Delete Driver of the hardware in Device Manager, it removes the hardware but does it also remove the driver from the cache?

Edit: Make that "Selectively delete.."

mis read meant device manager then right click properties what item is it.

The item is a known serviceable sound card.
I confirm this card is used by others in the same system (Crative XFi Fatal1ty Pro Gamer card in Win7 64bit system). It doesn't work in mine :-(
After all my checks I am convinced it's a driver issue. I have tried d/l and installing the latest driver but it still doesn't work properly. What I would like to do is delete from the driver cache everything "Creative".

I have just found several Creative entries in Win/Sys32 relating to sound etc, so I may go ahead and delete them then let Windows find a driver when I re-boot. Good scheme ? :-)
