Windows 7: Cant uninstall old nvidia drivers (HIGH AS A KITE)

Cant uninstall old nvidia drivers (HIGH AS A KITE)

(Sorry I posted this in the wrong category, it should go here)

Hi. My neighbourgh cant stop or uninstall Nvidia graphics drivers 344. He bought and AMD graphics card and he wants to start using it.
When the pc reboots after uninstalling nvidia drivers, windows 7 installs the nvidia drivers back again. There is no stopping it. Even with the new AMD card in the pc, windows still forcefully installs nvidia drivers because of that AMD graphics drivers cant even install.

Note that my neighbourgh thinks he can have both Nvidia and AMD drivers at the same time...can you please explain to him that is not possible? (He doesnt know english almost at all, so he cant even post on the forums by himself or communicate in english fluently.)

Thanks and... lol, bye I guess.

Oh, did I mention that my neighbourgh was HIGH AS A KITE while installing/uninstalling graphics drivers.

Maybe I missed something, but why is this a problem that you need to solve? As long as he gets "high as a kite", problems will continue to happen; in other words, if this is in fact your problem, you have an unending problem that will never be solved.

It's quite impossible for anyone to solve whatever the problem might be if no one is at the computer answering questions for us as we go or performing various troubleshooting steps.

Just set windows so it does not automatically install drivers.

I`ve never heard of a computer installing drivers for a non existing piece of hardware.

Even if there were 2 sets of drivers, it wouldn't be an issue, the nvidia drivers would just not be used by the system, I`ve done it before.
