Windows 7: NVIDIA GeForce Experience

NVIDIA GeForce Experience

Can NVIDIA GeForce Experience be uninstalled safely from "Programs and Features" without messing up any of the rest of the NVIDIA drivers?
A followup question if it can be.
I assume that once NVIDIA GeForce Experience is uninstalled and I want a newer driver, I would need to uninstall all of the old driver package one at a time before installing a newer one, is that correct?
Thanks for any responses.

Thanks
The reason I asked about uninstalling Experience is the new terms of agreement with version 3 which basically say's that they can use your "Collected" info anyway they want to. Kinda like MS and Win 10.

Well, it's been awhile since the OP but I finally got around to Uninstalling GeForce Experience in Jan 2017.
Big Problems ever since. My computer kept "Non-Responding" and all the graphics were going crazy. It was random when it happened and I couldn't figure out what the heck was going on and the only way to shut down the computer was to pull the plug, so ( Luckily ) I had made a Restore Point before uninstalling and I went all the way back to that RP today after fighting this thing.
So I guess the next step will be trying to figure out how to get rid of the Experience without screwing up the rest of my computer.
Any help would be appreciated.

Even the restore point didn't help as the computer started becoming unresponsive again after 1 day but the graphics weren't going crazy like before. I also noticed that when I clicked on GeForce Experience an error came up saying that it could not be found which tells me that remnants of it were still screwing things up.
So, I bit the bullet and installed the new version of GeForce Experience and evidently it works now ( so far ).
So that shows me that once GeForce Experience is installed, it has it's hooks into everything.
My advice to anyone reading this is to NEVER install GeForce Experience in the first place, just get the drivers manually.

Yes, GE can be a real PITA

But it does serve a purpose.
