    10 (Free upgrade)

    Nightmare, but I managed to fix things on my computer.

    First I stopped Microsoft updates.
    Then uninstalled every NVIDIA program/driver/utility I could find and (IMPORTANT) deleted the install folders!

    To stop Windows 10 updates do this...

    Open the start menu and type "Advanced"
    Select the second result, "View Advanced System Settings"
    In the "System Properties" window that just opened, select the hardware tab
    Click the "Device Installation Settings" button
    Select "No, let me choose what to do"
    Select the "Never install driver software from Windows Update"

    To boot into safe mode do this...


    Type msconfig and open the System Configuration utility.
    Click "Boot" and check the "Safe Boot" option.

    Next time you boot into Windows 10 it will be in 'Safe Mode.'
    Install the following driver...

    353.49-desktop-win10-64bit-international.hf.exe

    Do NOT install the GForce Experience and do not update the graphics driver to the newer version.

    I dunno if this will work for you, but it sorted out my problems.
    Incredibly, even after I had disabled Windows updates the crafty twat STILL downloaded an NVIDIA driver.
    Now I get pop up alerts from the task bar whining that it can't do the update!

    Microsoft... Inching it's way slowly into the past!
