    is the proper way just to remove from add/remove programs?

    I removed the nvidia nview thing and I think it did the trick.

    When I restarted Windows 7 automatically installed the driver and I had to restart.

    Yup , also you can use the "perform clean install" option while installing the NV drivers.

    usually what i do:

    1)uninstall drivers via add/remove programs

    2)restart in safe mode and run driver cleaner/driver fusion/driver sweeper/whatever

    3)restart and install new drivers
