No, I'm not speaking of the major wood I got from the Shitbit Fitbit coach app on my snazzy Live tiles. Looks like Nvidia has some stuff installed. I'll confess, I'm somewhat intrigued. Let's fire that bitch up!

Huh, well what happens if I just close the Log In window/dialog? Everything goes away. :roll:

Okay let me try to slide it over and see if can see what's under it.

Okay, what happens if I click on Optimize game settings or one of the others...

A brief flash and focus is returned to the Log In dialog!!!!!

So I close it down and reopen it just to make sure I haven't missed anything and it auto-updates!

I review and find I haven't missed anything. Whoa, a video card with auto-updating software with features I have to log in to use! That totally is isn't off-putting. My wood just got more major!

I ALWAYS uninstall ALL these stuff. You don't need that crap AT ALL. The drivers will still work just fine. Honestly, people who use that stuff are mostly retard gamer kids or complete morons. :arrow: Keep your system clean. Never use it as "Administrator". Never give "administrator" right to any program unless absolutely needed. 99% of the time they will run just fine. Not even at installation, do I give "administrator" rights to anything. I install on separate place, copy the files into my main "user" account. If the application doesn't work without needing "administrator" rights in my system, it's NEVER EVER worth running or using.
