    Bad nvidia drivers are becoming more frequent!

    Exactly I had none of these issues when had an amd card. I will be going back to team red when navi releases.

    I kinda wish I went with the vega 64 before the prices went absurd.

    This isn't a bug. The Nvidia overlords are just trying to get the 1060 peasants to buy 1080 Ti cards. I still remember how a driver update toasted my 8800 Ultra years ago

    Or you could just go to device manager, click on display adapters, right click on the video card, properties, driver tab, and click rollback driver. Seems easier then using DDU.

    To say nothing of the bloat and rubbish they force on people, when software installs hidden programs that the user may have no need of and potentially breeches their privacy it starts to resemble malware.

    Similar here, though I did a minimal, drivers only install. Maybe it'll hit me in a few weeks, or whenever I decide to reboot

    No idea why drivers are so large now 100mb + you can make a os with less than 15mb

    Same, I always perform custom installation, choosing only the graphics driver and performing a clean installation. Still no issues yet.

    This is never touted by the green team followers. I am so tired of the crappy support Nvidia customers get, how they state a card has 4Gb but in reality, it is only 3,2 or something. First and last time I buy Nvidia.

    Why, why and why do you need to have an un-install package? If you cannot remove it from add/remove programs then you're not doing your job nVIDIA!
