    I have recently updated the driver for my graphics card and suddenly find I have two NVidia control panels installed!
    version and version 7.2.710
    The latest one doesn't seem to operate properly, just tells an earlier version exists. How can I remove the older version OR remove the latest version. I don't want two and barely use it anyway!

    Same way as with any program, use "Programs & Features" in the "Control Panel" or search for "Uninstall a Program" and look under the "Settings" results. You can also run the installation again and choose to do a Custom install and then choose to do a "Clean Install" which should also remove the previous versions.

    Just in case, here's the latest driver download: http://www.geforce.com/drivers
