More Info about this tool:
Q:What is Display Driver Uninstaller(DDU) ?
A: Display Driver Uninstaller is a driver removal utility that can help you completely remove AMD/NVIDIA graphics card drivers and packages from your system, without leaving leftovers behind (including registry keys, folders and files, and the driver store).
The AMD/NVIDIA video drivers can normally be uninstalled from the Windows Control panel, this driver uninstaller program was designed to be used in cases where the standard driver uninstall fails, or whenever you need to thoroughly delete NVIDIA and ATI video card drivers.

I don't recall a time where I've had a problem because new drivers were installed over old one. I even remember one time I updated my AMD (ATI) graphics card drivers and started having problems. I wrote AMD's tech support and they told me the new drivers were buggy. They told me to just go to Device Manager, select the card and click "roll back driver". That worked.

I'm assuming this tool would be ideal if you switched your video card from NVidia to AMD, or vice versa.

No, amd recommends using amd uninstall tool before installing new driver or even updating old ones.
Removing all remnants of old drivers ensures better stability of gpu like OC'ing etc.
No need to uninstall via control panel run this tool in safe mode & it silently carries out uninstall process.
uninstall via control panel then reboot & run ddu in safe mode.
