Display driver problems

I just got a new computer with NVIDIA GEForce GT 220 graphics card and Windows 7 professional installed
From time to time it says driver crashed and the screen sort of freezes for a while then everything goes back to normal
I have attached a screen shot of my error message
How do I fix this?

Thanks in advance

Downloaded the latest driver from Nvidia for you specific card and OS. Before you install the new driver uninstall the current driver. Some people recommend using a drive removal program such as Guru3D - Driver Sweeper.

I will however suggest you look at…
