    These are nVidia drivers and will not remove your nVidia
    detonator drivers. This driver is nVidia detonator
    driver version 44.03 (the same one that is on their
    website currently however this one is WHQL signed and has
    more specific support for certain nVidia hardware). This
    driver was on the Driver Update section but after it was
    there for almost a month it was pushed out as a Critical
    Update to get wider coverage. It has been placed as a
    Critical Update to address a series of issues that have
    been reported to Microsoft via Online Crash Analysis.
    This driver has many fixes for known bugs from previous
    nVidia driver versions and should be installed. If you
    have any questions about this driver please feel free to
    contact me!
    Thanks in advance,

    you talking about crit updates for your vid card from microshaft? never, ever, ever install these!

    always install the most recent vid card updates from the official nvidia site.

    I would not suggest that update, as I installed it. When you start the computer and it loads into winxp, the sreen will jump to black then back to your window (this happens twice). Also the welcome sound gets corrupted with gastly static sounds. After this everything is ok, but it is a bl**dy nuisance.

    It is part of the quote. Forgot the " "......

    Why doesn't MS do this with other companies and drivers that need updates to run on-line, or to even run a game period.
