Windows 7: To all nVidia users: turn off Stereoscopic 3D

To all nVidia users: turn off Stereoscopic 3D

As Rafael Rivera said in his article:NVIDIA Stereo 3D Vision service bug causes handle leak - Within Windows
All users of drivers 186.xx and up should disable the NVIDIA Stereoscopic 3D Driver Service because it is the cause of some memory leaks and crashes.
Even the beta versions are affected with this bug, but nVidia says that it will fix this bug "sometime this month".




p.s. And a BIG HELLO to sevenforum! This is my first post!

Thanks for the information. I am also having an issue with NVIDIA win7 drivers.

I'm using XFX 8500 GT (256 MB) card for the past 9 months with vista wihtout any problem. Last week I switched to Windows 7. After that also ,the display doesn't have any problem. But when watching movies, it looks pixelated. I installed the latest NVIDIA drivers also. Intel onboard graphics works properly with windows 7. I hope NVIDIA people will solve this also.

Kinda sux that you have to install the driver..., bad decision to have to install something that effects real world gameplay

How about the fact that it gets installed whether you have Nvidia's special 3D kit (and the monitor to use it) or not,

Yep it comes bundled with Nvidia drivers but its pretty usseles so my advice-disable the service anyway (unless you have 3d glasses or something!)

Thanks for the headsup. Seems pretty useless for most people to have it enabled by default.
