Unable to remove NVIDIA drivers

I have a GT 650M Graphic card and i was trying to update my drivers but first i want to uninstall the previous drivers which i can't.

From programs and features i tried to uninstall them and then it says "Removing Optimus"
And the green bar doesn't move a bit. I waited for like 6 hours still it is not uninstalling.
What should i do ?

    Download Driver sweeper, and run it in windows safe mode, let it scan and then delete all the drivers it finds.

    But you know you dont have to delete previous drivers before updating.

    Yes i know i don't have to remove old one for updating.
