Windows 7 Home on notebook. I installed optional update for nVidia (Graphics Adapter WDDM1.1, Graphics Adapter WDDM1.2, Graphics Adapter WDDM1.3, Other hardware - NVIDIA GeForce 9300M GS). Although everything is working normally and I dont have errors, I noticed that this update mainly intended for improving gaming performance, and has installed a varios extra stuff, nVidia 3D Vision Driver, Graphic Driver 327.02, Update 1.14.17 As I don't use my laptop for gaming, I don't really need this update. How to unistall this update properly, all it components and registry entries? Also, I think driver update removed the previous drivers during the installation process.

remove it with the help of the control panel->installed programs. – magicandre1981 Dec 19 '13 at 5:00
Well, this is an obvious way. Will it remove all traces of the driver, include registry entries? How then to install default graphic driver? – triwo Dec 19 '13 at 11:48
this should remove all parts. You can extract the Exe and use the device manager to only update the GPU driver. – magicandre1981 Dec 19 '13 at 18:08
should I do system restore in addition after uninstalling driver to roll back Windows state? – triwo Dec 20 '13 at 0:44
no, there is not need for that. – magicandre1981 Dec 20 '13 at 5:01
