This site doesn't exist to satisfy you. If you have a problem, leave.

Besides, your whining sounds more like a 12 yr old than anything bob has done. There is an ignore feature as well as multiple other ways to avoid it. So, exercise one of those options, or stop whining.

So don't ignore the Mod when he tells you to chill and stop acting like a crybaby. Like he said, there's the door if you don't like the venue.

Us guys with big post counts stay rough here because we can either play ball as well as goof off, or everyone just ignores us.

Anyway did the direct download install correctly? I've had the original posters problems before, it's a pain BUT look at it this way. An everyday user doesn't update drivers unless there is a problem like The Sims 2 crashes, so getting updates through Win Updates is fine. MS designed it that way to only allow stable drivers and to ensure all updates play well.

An enthusiasts goes and grabs the latest driver right from the manufacturer, so it can be expected Win Updates will be a few steps behind and not detect the spanking new driver. So downloading the entire SP2 package is usually the way to go for us guys and just let Win Update handle the little updates.

A real testimony (again!) to the spam fest that is nvnews. Do you mods/admins not grow tired of this? *sigh

The direct download installed fine, no problems at all.
