The new driver is version 22.214.171.124. Everything seems ok until I go into the advanced settings, as I mentioned above. The error given at first is "nvcpl: catastrophic failure". After clicking ok another error comes up: "RUNDLL: an exception occurred while trying to run "shell32.dll, Control_RunDLL "C:\Windows\System32\desk.cpl", Display" "
The previous driver was 4. something.
I guess one cure would be to stop going into those advanced settings...
Had same result after downloading latest driver from win updates(and i did not uninstall first) go back to display properties,settings,advanced click on the adapter tab,properties,driver,and select rollback driver.
Has anybody - NVIDIA, Microsoft - owned up and said that this is a cock up?
I just caused major panic in the household by downloading this "RECOMMENDED UPDATE" and knackering our PC. Managed the rollback on my own but this is the second MS download error that I've come across in a couple of months.
