Nvidia Driver CleanUp

  1. Get 7-Zip and install it, if you haven’t already.
  2. Download the latest driver from here.
  3. Right click on the driver .exe and use 7-Zip to extract the driver files to a folder.
  4. Delete files as shown in the photo — preferrably “Minimalistic”.
  5. After that, open setup.cfg with Notepad++ or any other text editor, and delete the following lines:
    <file name="${{EulaHtmlFile}}"/>
    <file name="${{FunctionalConsentFile}}"/>
    <file name="${{PrivacyPolicyFile}}"/>

They are towards the bottom of the file. Deleting them lets you run the setup file after modifying driver contents. Save the file after you deleted them.

You are done! Run setup.exe and install your new, decrapified driver.

Make sure to select “Custom installation” and “Perform clean installation” and proceed with installing the driver normally.

I do recommend running DDU to clean your current driver in Safe Mode before doing this.
