i have updated the nvidia drivers on my pc , and upon looking this up i find two folders 177.41(older one i believe) and the newer version 178.24 .

is it safe to uninstall the 177.41 or is it best left alone ?

cheers

I'd use drivercleaner to remove all traces of both drivers and then do a fresh install of which ever one you intend to use. Latest isn't always greatest.

If you're referring to the nVidia folder on the root of your C: drive (ie. C:\nvidia\...), then yes you can delete both as the drivers are extracted here before being installed.
Just keep the installer in case you need to reinstall.
