It's the driver supplied with Win7. Use the WHQL driver (digitally signed) recently released from NVIDIA for your system; x86 or x64. Cheers.

What is this? ... Windows Update: Graphics Adapter WDDM update
I already have the latest NVIDIA driver installed on my Windows 7 x64 for my GeForce GTX 660 Ti. But I got this item in my Windows Update list. Is this something different from NVIDIA drivers--and therefore I should install it? Or should I hide this update and ignore it?
