Running Vista Ultimate 64-bit. I've installed the 100.65 drivers. Where's the system tray icon?

These drivers (and the 101.41's) don't seem to install the tray icon. However you can right-click on the desktop and select "NVIDIA Control Panel".

Yeah - I've been doing that (and waiting ~20 seconds for it to come up). I'm hoping they'll add it back in a future driver release.

I run vista x64 and 100.65. It only takes 3 - 4 seconds to open with mine. Tried the 101.41 beta drivers but the control panel didn't function right at all. Evidently they have some unsigned drivers in them which x64 will not load.

Hmmm, in x64 for me the 101.41 drivers load the control panel really fast, the 100.65's take ages.

101.41 cp loads in less then a sec here.
100.65 takes ages indeed.
x86.

Oh, it loaded right away. Faster than 100.65. It was when I went to assign 3d settings. The options in the drop down menus wouldn't show up until I placed my cursor where they ought to be. They would then fade in. Plus the windows experience would stop working at the 3d portion. Thats when I rolled back to the 100.65, just to be safe. I've done reinstalled once. Besides, control panel opens in the same amount of time as it does in xp (3 - 4 seconds) and everything that I tried and used worked. Such as importing game .exes', assigning and saving 3d options both with global and programs settings. I believe there has to be some connection with x64, unsigned drivers and an application or program not being fully functional. To many articles say that x64 will not allow unsigned drivers to be loaded to ignore them. I've only had problems with two programs and they were both betas, 101.41 and the latest ati tool. I can wait on the whql for my x64 rather than get the c000021a bsod and reinstall again.
