Just search for all .CPL files. Remove the nVidia one.

If you're still unhappy with that, then in the registry here:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

Search for the nVidia stuff

Delete the entire key and branch for the nVidia drivers.

tried this no go still stays there so i got desperate and had a support session with Microsoft and a kind person connected to my pc and tried to remove them so it did not stick in the control panel with no go. he then tried to install the old drivers which should have overridden the stuck control panel with no go. he reinstalled the beta drivers and it overridden it. so he dug deeper and to find out what nvidia did was remove the control panel app as part of the driver oh wow good news no not so good news on my end. As in doing this they made a default directory for the nvidia control panel it no longer puts itself in windows system 32 instead it installs itself to a separate directory within the all programs nvidia directory. It's now called nvidia Control Panel Client so the mystery is solved don't install these drivers at all unless you don't plan on going back to the old ones. now i hope a new driver will come out from nvidia that will install and override this stuck panel i get when i uninstall these hoping that they don't change it yet again.
