I hope some one can helpme, I have a Dell desktop, about 3 yeas old and running Vista Professional. Windows update has informed me that there is an update available for the above - it is 99.4MB!!! I installed an update for this at the end of November last year and as I remember it it was fairly large. Does anyone have any idea as to why there should be another update so soon one, and is this update worth installing?

Good Afternoon,

May I apologise and thank everyone for their help and advice on this. The delay is my own fault, but I have taken the advice given and will download from the NVIDIA website, and I will mark this as resolved.
