Safely removing old NVIDA drivers ?

I noticed that I have nVidia drivers dating back from a long time ago still on my PC. I was hesitate to just delete the folders in Windows after reading that you can cause problems or false positives etc. With that in mind, how do I remove previous nVidia drivers, I presently have the latest drivers installed (306.23) and I have drivers installed dating back to 191.07. I know I should have removed the old drivers before installing the new one, but when you want to verify that a driver will solve a video issue, you don't follow that step.

You can just delete the old ones if you want, I usually let a few previous ones stay in case I want to roll back.
