    Nvidia question

    I realize one can delete the Nvidia folder after installing an update. My question still remains, is it ok (or possible) to delete the whole Folder in C:\Programs Files called Nvidia Corporation? I have deleted all the files in the Nvidia Corporation\Installer2 but what about the whole Folder itself? I actually tried it and it wouldn't delete. Is it wiser to leave this Folder alone?
    Also ... under C:\Program File (x86) there is another Folder called NVIDIA Corporation. Is it possible (or safe) to delete this Folder & if not, is there anything in it that one can delete?

    Thanks for this. It doesn't answer my question totally but thank you just the same. Very interesting!

    What was the method that you used to delete the files?
    Run DDU and see what happens:
    Official Display Driver Uninstaller DDU Download
    Display Driver Uninstaller Download version
    Let us know what happens after running DDU.

    I manually deleted the NVIDIA folder. In the NVIDIA Corporation Folder in C:\Program Files\Installer2, I creamed the works of them manually. No problems so far.
    From what I'm finding thus far, it appears I must leave the NVIDIA Corporation Folder alone and not try to delete it unless pain is something i enjoy. I've got to turn in for a bit but if you've got advice, I'm listening, or should that be ... reading. Thanks for the reply!

    Do not delete that folder as it contains graphic card DLLs and the display container.

    Installing and updating the graphic drivers can make the folder grow to gigabytes in size. If you really want to clean it run DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller), like zbook posted above, and then install your graphic card drivers. My folder size for C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation is 244mb.

    Tried downloading DDU but as usual, the page tries to download another junk file that I'm not going to put on this computer. I'll look for it on another site. Thanks for the advice.

    I personally wouldn't mess with anything other than what the tutorial suggests C/ nvidia/ display driver folder.

    Ok, thanks so much for the advice. The link to the DDU worked perfectly this time. By the way, do you mind elaborating a bit more on what you just stated Thrashzone?
