  2. Right-click on CUDA.
  3. Click Remove CUDA Preference pane.

  2. Under the Graphics Drivers tab, click on the Lock and type your password.
  3. Click the Open Uninstaller button.

  5. Restart your computer.

Cheers

@maclinuxg4,

"/System/Library/Extensions/NVDAStartupWeb.kext" is not part of MacOS (I just checked two of my Mojave systems)
Should be safe to delete it and rebuild kext cache.

You may also need to remove the CUDA framework in addition to the the CUDA kext (see my updated last post)

Cheers
Jay
