Trying to get something working and part of doing so says I need to uninstall Nvidia Video and Audio drivers with out rebooting. I need to go back a few version to get this Shield streaming working remotely. Problem is soon as I uninstall one it wont let me uninstall the next. Says you need to reboot before uninstalling.

If I reboot it auto re installs the damn nvidia drivers I was trying to uninstall.

Try setting windows firewall to ask you to install anything so then it wont reinstall.

Check here
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\PendingFileRenameOperations
Clear the value of the key and Windows should stop thinking you need a reboot.

Set this to 0
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates\UpdateExeVolatile
