I'm not sure what you are asking. You have a Nvidia video display adapter and drivers, but want to un-install and re-install the drivers?

Or, you upgraded to a new Nvidia 9600 GSO video card and need to update your drivers?

In any case, you should un-install the drivers, rather than delete the Nvidia folder from the hard disk. When the drivers are installed, the installation makes changes in the operating system registry. If you just delete the folder that the drivers are located at, the registry will look still look for the drivers, but won't find them. By "uninstalling" the drivers, the registry is modified so that your operating system doesn't try to load the uninstalled drivers any more.
