As in, completely removed:

# sudo aptitude purge ~invidia-glx

I run vrms, monthly, which lists the non-free software installed on my 
system.  Since it's a laptop, there is zero chance that it will ever 
need the non-free nvidia or ati modules, so I removed them.  I'm not a 
Richard Stallman devotee, and I don't object to using non-free software 
on priinciple, but I don't see a need to have it on my system if I don't 
use it.  Some of the stuff that is listed by vrms is, imo, quite free
