Windows Experience Index Dropped like crazy. Anyone got any clues?

Hi everyone.
I just did a windows update. There were two regular 64x based system updates, and one nvidia video card update. After the update were applied, i restared the computer, as prompted. Then i checked my system properties page, and it tells me to refresh. I refreshed, and my ssd score dropped from 6.8 to 6.3. This bothered me, so i ran another test. This time it dropped to a 5.9, and my ram and cpu dropped from a 5.5 each to a 5.4 each.

Any help or suggestions would be welcomed. I know the scores aren't the most important thing, but they shouldn't drop like that for no reason.

Thanks in advance everyone.

Don`t use Windows update to update your video card. Go to nvidia.com, download your video drivers, do a custom/clean install of the drivers. Restart the pc and rerun your WIE again.

Post your results.

Always go the the Manufacturer`s website for video drivers.
