Can't start or remove Nvidia Drive Manager

The Nvidia Driver Manager will not open. I have re-installed the latest drivers (10 times) but the result is the same. Even tried to install older drivers- NO GO. SEE Screen Image.

I can’t open the Driver Manager to remove to run official uninstall. What ever is preventing it from running is in the system and untouchable. Any suggestions would be helpful. If necessary I will wait until NVIDIA updates their Drive Manager again to see if that will solve the issue. In the mean time my MAC PRO is running fine just not using NVIDA drivers.

1. The CUDA preference pane will open.
2. Photoshop is showing that "Detected Graphics Processor” Open GL
3. Ran Disk Utilities from Single user and also ran FSCK.
4. Removed the SSD from the Velocity and connected it to the mother board directly and ran utilities and tried to re-install NVIDIA. No luck.
5. I may have to reformat and start over.

Erased and installed new system

Gave up and Erased my SSD drive and reinstalled OS 10.10.2. The rebuilt from time machine. And yes I had to remove the sad from the Velocity Solo X2 PCI card.

I now get a message that I need to update my MAC OS 10.10.2 to a newer system before installing (WebDriver-343.02.02f04).

Not having any luck with this.
Good night all.
