Cannot remove entry from Control Panel Jumplist

I pinned the NVIDIA Control Panel to my Control Panel Jumplist, but when I uninstalled the graphic drivers to update to a newer version, the shortcut on the jumplist no longer works, but it doesn't let me remove it either.

How to clear all the items of Jump List of a program?

And some more info you may want to look at here,

Wish there was more to offer but that's all I can find right now.
