Windows 7: Any way to get NVIDIA Win 7 drivers to show again in Windows Update?

Any way to get NVIDIA Win 7 drivers to show again in Windows Update?

I was having some screen freeze issues that turned out to be related to Hard Drive / DVD Drive firmware on a new Dell PC and part of what I did to troubleshoot along the way was to install the current Vista drivers for my installed 9500GT and 6200 cards.

I did this after I installed the Win 7 drivers for both that previously showed up in Windows Update. Now that I have teh freezing fixed, I'd like to go back to the Win 7 Beta drivers but they're no longer available in WU and you can't get them direct from NVIDIA's site.

Anyone have any ideas on how to get them to show again? Thx.

Thanks for the response and the welcome.

I'm currently on the 181.22 drivers. I was hoping to get back to the Pre-release WDDM 1.1 drivers that originally showed in WU after the 7 install and mentioned in the warning section of the 1st post in that thread.

Uninstall the drivers and then it should be in WU again.

Doh!

The one thing I didn't try is the obvious and logical solution : )

It worked great. Thanks!
