    I would suggest the previous driver BEFORE 364.72, it worked for me great or the previous one before that one
    Thank you. I'll try one of those and if they cause problems I'll just uninstall it and go back to whatever Microsoft installs via the Windows Updates.

    I also think I'll only install the graphics driver and none of the other stuff (3D, Gforce Experience, etc..) to keep things simple.

    As I built this system myself I do not have any OEM drivers. I do have the original NVidia install disk. But that's just going to be the same as what's on the NVidia website except it will be really old.

    Great! Then tell us what your outcome is to see if it solved it or not.

    I've gone back to using Windows 7 for this computer. I'll try Win 10 again when more bugs have been ironed out.

    I don't know if it's a graphics card issue, or something else. But the performance of Adobe Bridge (64) in this Windows 10 installation is so poor that I can't work with it as quickly as I need to. For example, just selecting 20 thumbnails in Bridge CS6(64) causes the system to wait 2-3 seconds before the thumbnails are selected. Updating metadata incurs pauses when there should be none. Parsing a folder with 500 12MP raw images to create the high quality previews seems to be taking a LOT longer than it should. This system was built for speed and under Windows 10 it's pokey and slow to do the chores it was built for.

    Also, when I swap out the SSD to go back to Win7 it insists on scanning all the hard drives for errors. It doesn't seem to find any, but that's something I never see.

    All-in-all it's just not working well and I have photo work to process. So I'm giving up trying to make Won10 work for the moment and try again when I have time (to waste). The same chores done under Windows 7 are instantaneous with no delays whatsoever. If it ain't broke ...

    FWIW I have 3 other desktops and a Lenovo laptop which are now all running Windows 10 quite well (all clean installs). So it's obviously not an issue with all machines. But those others are not used for image or video editing which I need to do to earn my living.

    I know this has swerved a little since the original post. Personally if your system works ok I wouldn't update gpu drivers (even if your a gamer). If it ain't broke don't fix it. I'd update the driver if there was a compelling reason to do so. My drivers are 355.something or other. They work great.

    unfortunately updating the gpu drivers is a bit like Russian roulette. I read quite few horror stories relating to nvidia new releases. It's best to save yourself the hassle. Seeing as nvidia seems to update its drivers everytime the wind changes you could spend far too much time updating.

    my only concern with my stance is suddenly Microsoft will attempt to shove new drivers down the update pipe. That'd be an unpleasant shock if that happened. Hopefully they have stopped doing this after all the criticism because since getting my machine in early October that's never happened

    For a part I disagree due to security issues that then won't be fixed quickly.
