Windows 7: nVidia Control Panel & Drivers Problems

nVidia Control Panel & Drivers Problems

Hello guys,

I am having some real annoying problems with the nVidia Control Panel + Drivers (Geforce GT220), for about a year or two now lol.
So I currently have the 275.33 installed, and every time there's an update I have tried to update the drivers but with no luck.

Okey this is what happens every time:
I download the right driver, in this case, the very latest (295.73-desktop-win7-winvista-64bit-international-whql.exe) and extract the files.
I run as administrator the installer, accept terms and accept & install.
It starts well, after about 20% of the progressbar, the installation stops at nVidia Control Panel and it says "Error". And nothing else can be done. I've been stuck with the 275.33 drivers for months!

I've tried the following:
1. Perform a "Clean Install". Deleted my drivers, and then fails at the Control Panel installation.
2. Uninstall drivers in normal mode. Reboot into safe mode, use Driver Sweeper to clean leftover files, clean registry with CCleaner. Boot back into normal mode, run installer, it fails. Have to system restore to get drivers back installed (not even the 275.33 installation works!)
3. I've even tried following a suggestion I found online, I totally uninstalled the drivers, and then used Windows Update to find the drivers. (I hate using Windows Update to update anything but the OS). The updates failed.

Computer Specs:
Code:

    MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1

    Intel Core i3 530  @ 2.93GHz
    Clarkdale 32nm Technology

I have no idea what to do now. My whole pc is up-to-date, bios and all, except nVidia.
Suggestions are gladly welcome, if you need any info just ask.
Thanks in advance!

A few suggestions.
Install the executable, without using "Run as administrator".
or
Use 7-Zip, WinZip, etc., extract the files and use setup.exe to install.
or
Try installing the Display Driver using nvcplsetupeng.exe, inside the folder.

Thanks for the fast reply, tried without admin, didn't work, error came up at the Control Panel part of the installation again.
There is no nvcplsetupeng.exe or any nvcplsetup.exe file in any folder. :S Inside the physX folder is only PhysX_9.12.0209_SystemSoftware.msi

Edit: my bad, it's called NVCPLSetupInt.exe for me. gonna try it now

Check the Edit:
:P
So I ran NVCPLSetupInt.exe and nothing seemed to happen. Asked me to allow the program to allow changes to the computer. But no window showed up.

Nvidia just can't make 64 bit drivers. I have updated twice and two times the driver "stopped responding" and the BSOD appeared. Now my Win 7 64 bit Pc only use drivers from Windows Update.
