Don't install nVidia 196.75 Drivers

RE: Don't install nVidia 196.75 Drivers


You got any other references, possibly?  I didn't try the first link, but the 2nd was blocked by work firewall, stating "malicious software..." - blocked by websense..

RE: Don't install nVidia 196.75 Drivers

Yep, I've had a look at the nVidia and other forums and this does seem to be a serious problem.
In fact, nVidia has removed the offending driver from thier downloads.

It's a good thing you mentioned this today as I probably would have tried to install it as soon as I got home, just recieved a sc2 beta key...
