I'm currently using CAT 10.7 but it seems to be very unstable for me. With the old nvidia ones I could just install the old on over the top and it would be fine, but these don't seem to do that. How to I go about uninstalling and going back to 10.6?

Give Driver Sweeper a download:

Uninstall old drivers, reboot into safe mode and open up Driver Sweeper, then boot back into Windows and install the new drivers.

Sure there isn't an easier way to do it?

That is probably the safest method.

Thats what I usually do just uninstall and install newer ones, but since he's going back to a older version safest bet is he removes every single bit of the 10.7 drivers.

Yeah it didn't work, 10.4 would install but wouldnt reboot itself and the computer wouldnt recognise it was installed, same with 10.6. Had to install 10.7 again.

You can try Revo Uninstaller in advanced mode. It'll remove all reggy entries and anything associated. I don't know if it really rips all the crud out like DS does, but it is normal mode capable where as DS wants to use safe mode.
