So I decided to try ReShade on PUBG, didn't like it as it bugged my whole OS when closing PUBG nor i can't play CS anymore as it does not launch. I found some topic on forums here that told me which files to delete from the game folders. My worries are that there are some files deep in the windows system. How do i find every single file that ReShade createss so i can get my games to work

I doubt there are any ReShade files deep inside your OS.. maybe it could have installed some DirectX stuff but I'm not familiar with ReShade in PUBG as I've only used ReShade in CS:GO.
Can you reply with your computer specs?

The ReShade setup tool creates one DLL file in your game folder accompanied by a INI file. That DLL and INI can have one of the following names: d3d9.dll, dxgi.dll or opengl32.dll. In addition if you chose to download some shaders, it will creates a folder "reshade-shaders" and put a bunch of effect files inside. That's it. It does nothing else. It does neither add more files somewhere else, nor edit the registry, nor anything really.
If your games don't work even after deleting those files it's not ReShade's fault.

So I decided to fully delete every file i found, still no help, also tried reinstalling the whole game. This started right after installing the ReShade for PUBG. Are you sure there is no tracer cookies or binaries or anything in OS files or DirectX files

Probably something else that updated. Windows has been updating recently and GeForce updated yesterday.

Yes. If you don't believe me, it's open source: github.com/crosire/reshade/tree/master/setup

Reason found:
Some reason ReShade had fucked my graphics drivers, simple reinstall worked
