    I can't understand why so many users get scared off by NVIDIA beta drivers, up until a few years ago NVIDIA regularly released beta drivers to the public. A lot of them were preferred to the WHQL releases.

    Well they should be labeled beta. Hotfix does not sound like beta to me but more like update fix.

    Because they are not fully signed. Not that it actually means much about its quality -- and you're right, some of them were preferred -- but it may cause problems depending on what system config you're using (in this case the hotfix driver seems to create issues on clean W10 1607-1803 installs from a UEFI Secure Boot enabled path). They were also "stripped". I can't comment on how they do it today, but before they had missing features and/or bug fixes that the previous signed driver had depending on the driver branch. Kind of annoying that an issue came back up after installing a beta driver, even if the beta driver had the latest numeric. My advice is simple: Only install them if you need the fix it provides, otherwise "if it ain't broke don't fix it".

    Nice post Faith, I agree with you

    UPDATE: Our hotfix drivers now require us to get a Microsoft signature prior to release. We are changing our hotfix driver process to do so going forward and have reposted an updated 398.46 package that now has the correct signature at the URL in the OP.
