Windows 7 32-bit

Thanks for your help with that. It seems to have taken care of the "temp" folder problem. Since my driver disk did not work in Windows 7, I had to download the driver from Nvidia's web site. Now I have the problem that I can't uninstall certain Nvidia programs that I don't want. I have come to hate Nvidia. It is so hard to deal with. It's like working with an Adobe program -- it just does all kinds of crap you don't want it to do. My next video card will not be a Nvidia if I can help it.

Anyway, I appreciate the help.

You're welcome and glad to hear that helped with the temp folder.

You might want to mark this thread closed solved, and create a new thread in the Graphic Cards forum.
Posting there with a new thread title will probably get better help for the new issue.
