Windows 7: browsing control panel....and it crashed.

If you do not use any "special" features of the nVidia card, Windows driver is fine. On my ATI card, I use an overscan setting that is not available with the Windows driver.

Soundcard drivers are famous for causing these types of problems. Just install one driver at a time and test in control panel so you can figure out which one is causing the problems.

thank you everyone for the help on this issue.
Instead of the latest 190.38 driver , i used 186.18 now.

I have too this problem. The control panel crash was causing igfxcpl.cpl. So i move it from System32 folder and now is control panel fully working without crashing. I think that Intel Video Driver is old and doesn't support Win 7.

Had same problem here, but solved with one of these hotfixes.

Windows6.1-KB123334-x64
Windows6.1-KB123456-v2-x64

Try both of them.

I don't know exactly which one solved my Windows 7 Control Panel navigation problem, but now my Control Panel works perfectly without crashing...

Is there a hotfix page for Windows 7 on Microsoft's site for us mere technet/msdn users yet? Or are those "in the wild" patch files?

Where did you get those hotfixes? I looked for them on Microsoft's Knowledge Base but can't find them.

Referenced on TechNet

With the possible exception of KB123334, I do not see the connection.
