    the add/remove function in control panel is good enough
    - I use regcleaner regularly as some programs leave loads of stuff behind
    when you uninstall them but not Nvidia.
    Also search your Windows directory for nv*.* files and all thats
    left is a help file.

    Go here and check out "Nasty File Remover"; made specifically to remove all
    the crap that NVIDIA's leave behind: http://tinyurl.com/rhva

    I usually clean out drivers like this:
    Take display adapter's properties and driver-sheet. Uninstall.
    Add/Remove Programs, Uninstall NVidia driver.
    Run Driver Cleaner.
    Reboot and install the new driver.
