If you know the exact driver file names there's also the manual track down and remove from the system32 folder provided none are still being loaded into memory. That would indicate remaining registry values instructing Windows to still load them up.
And then hope you don't break anything when you're done. Better off to just leave the old drivers if things are working as expected.
