    Just go into control panel, add remove programs, and you should see NVidia drivers in that list. Then just click the remove button.

        you have to have your nvidia card in,then uninstall the drivers,instead of rebooting turn it off and switch cards,install ati cats

        i tried everything to get rid of a few nv files but couldnt.
        I had to reformat

            I didnt do benchmarks,but yes I believe they were
            2 undeletable files, nvmini and some nv.dll
            I tried like 6 different ways to get rid of them without counting the programs or destroyers
            hey, a reforamt never hurts,pcs run great aftarwards:up:
            But i would do it the way I said first before a format,esp if your unprepared or havent had experience reformating very much.
            I was told to get rid of the bad files the nvidia card has to be in
            didnt try it i just got frustrated instead and decided to start clean

              you want the det destroyer program.

              let me repeat that.

              you really... want the det destroyer program (which i think nvidia offers for download)

                  I'd backup my data and reformat just to be cautious. That's how I did it with mine, didn't want no pesky nvidia **** interfering... w/ nvidia, you never know... lol

                    I had to re-install too and i would recommend you to do so as well.
                    I used Detonator Destroyer AND Nasty File Remover and still some nvidia files were doing weird stuff with my shiny new Radeon...

                      Driver cleaner did the trick for me. I installed my radeon without reformatting or anything else, the nvidia drivers didn't bug my radeon at all.

                        are you sure?
                        run a search for nv

                          I would REALLY like to avoid another format....i formatted 2 times in 2 days and that was just 5 days ago....i guess i'll try to run the card without format and then i'll see.....NOT ANOTHER FORMAT OR I'LL COMMITT SUICIDE..
