I have had the exact opposite experience. With Nvidia I could always just install over, but with AMD I usually have to do an uninstall and restart before installing the newer drivers. It's gotten worse since I got my HD5850, now I have to do driver sweeps inbetween restarts before installing, and even then it's only successful like 75% of the time.
And same applies to NVIDIA as well. Have been updating them with install over the old one since the GeForce 2 MX days (and later GeForce 2 Pro, geForce 4 Ti4200, GeForce 6600GT, GeForce 7300GT, GeForce 7600GT, GeForce 8400GS) and never had any problems.
So i'd say i know the drivers prety well.
