Unable to uninstall Xilinx ECM Driver v2.51.0.0

Hello everyone,


Hopefully this is the correct section of the forum but I'm having a bit of an issue. I'm in need of some help, I can't seem to uninstall the Xilinx ECM Driver. I had the Xilinx Design tools Vivado HL Design Edition 2017.3 version and decided to upgrade to the 2018.2. So i uninstalled the 2017.3 version but I can't uninstall the Xilinx ECM Driver. I get an error every time I try to uninstall it. Normally, I would shrug this off but this thing takes up 22GB's of space from the SSD. The last thing I want to do is wipe my drive just to remove this Driver.  I've attached screenshots below. Looking at the error, it seems like I had to uninstall the Driver BEFORE uninstalling Xilinx 2017.3 but how was I suppose to know. I even used the uninstall.exe in the 2017.3 installation folder. Will I need to install the 2017.3 version again?


If you guys need any more information from me, please feel free to ask. I looked through the pinned topics for a template on how to format my post or any information i should be providing but there wasn't any. 

OS: Windows 10
