I tried yesterday but still same problem exist. I uninstalled nvidia driver by CCleaner then reboot. After that I deleted the nvidia folder in C:\ . Then I installed the new update from NVIDIA site.

This error comes out on event viewer system tab log after every reboot or turn on of the PC.

Was the application disabled when you went to uninstall it?
I would try to uninstall it in Safe mode if possible
Then download the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301
Search for anything referring to nvidia and remove it and see if that helps

Also, certain scan tools like Spybot's Teatimer functions monitor the registry to prevent changes
You might have to disable that
