Uninstall Drivers from HP laptop

HP Recommended
HP du1004tu
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

1. What are the other ways to uninstall the drivers in hp laptop

usually we use " Control panel - programs and features OR  Windows settings - apps and features option " to uninstall drivers for all other laptop brands (Ex: Dell and Asus). but HP laptop we didn't found these options to uninstall the drivers.  It's very difficult to uninstall and install the drivers through "Device Manager" . Because once we uninstall the drivers through Device manager and restart the pc, then automatically previous drivers are install to that device. Can't install fresh installation for device drivers. 

how to permanently uninstall the previous driver files from HP laptop and install the fresh drivers for the specific device.

 

2. Why HP driver files are saved in " C:SWsetup " folder ?.
