Uninstalling (for the most part) is simply reversing the installation method. For example, if to install it you used:

sudo apt-get install ndisgtk

Then to uninstall it you would use:

sudo apt-get remove ndisgtk

There are additional details you might want to read:

The last link deals with the windows wrapped drivers that are created in /lib/modules/uname -r/misc, /etc/ndiswrapper and /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper.

That said I’m often one of those β€œLeave well enough alone” guys and even if I wasn’t using Windows Wrapped Drivers anymore I might be tempted to just leave them be. On the other hand if dkms was compiling the new drivers with each kernel update and the time was distracting me, I probably would purge it all.
