    Yes it was horrific cos an Update from MS was supposed to upgrade my Nvidia driver but it left my computer in oversize icons that I had to undo and a program that just would not work as it went to a black screen and stayed there until I rebooted. I had to go back to an earlier backed up version After I searched the updates that auto downloaded. I have now changed my Updates to not install until I agreed. Not happy. Why update my graphics card?

    Always get your drivers from the manufacturer's site if possible. I have always reviewed the updates before updating.

    Hi

    I'd go to the nVidia site now and get the latest official drivers for your video card.
