Nvidia driver problems.
Adapter: Nvidia GeForce GTX 670
Drivers Packages tried: 335.23, 340.52, 344.11

When I load any of the above drivers Win Explorer freezes with a right click on a disk. (no context menu) Sfc finds no problems. I can unload Nvidia drivers run driver sweeper and windows load a generic driver and the problem goes away. Loaded a previous image and problem still exists. Ran system repair with no success. Loaded drivers in custom mode and only installed the driver. Problem still exists. Is it possible my card is failing?

Bummer, when the Windows Explorer crashes, Windows Error Reporting Service creates a dmp file. I would post it in the BSOD forum and see what it shows.

Also try removing your Norton Internet security and see if it fixes it. If so try a re install and test again.

DMP File

OK. I was going to find the dmp file, zip it up, and post it. When I started a search to find it, man, I had loads of dmp files. Not real sure which one I wanted I decided to delete them, call up explorer and let it crash and then hunt for the appropriate file. Well guess what. After getting rid of all the dmp files I could find I called up Win Explorer and the context menu now works. WTF!!!!!!!

Better Nvidia Graphics card
Hi, I read on another forum site that a Nvidia Geforce GT630 with 1GB dedicated memory is better than a Nvidia Geforce GT620 with 2GB dedicated memory. Is this true, surely more memory would be a bigger advantage than the slight speed difference between models? Thanks, Tom
