Nvidia HD Audio driver persists even after uninstall, why?

I have uninstalled all Nvidia products however in my device manager I can still see the Nvdia High Definition Audio listed. Next, I reinstalled the Nvidia drivers but did not include the audio driver but it is still listed in the device manager. I really want to remove this audio driver, what can I do?

Solved it after some extensive reading. It's best if you uninstall all Nvidia software using the add remove programs. Find and install Driver Cleaner Pro and then restart in safe mode. When PC boots in safe mode you should run the Driver Cleaner Pro and select Nvidia or your video card if different. Run the tool and restart. Should be fixed
