Yes. Getting the driver from GeForce Experience got me up and running again. However, the Protein Screensaver still does not stay animated for more than a few seconds.

NVidia often has newer WHQL drivers that the minimum that satisfy the Windows Update minimum. It mas been my policy to install newer drivers so that whenever MS increases their minimums, I'm already running that level. This avoids the inevitable WU crash produced when I allow Windows Update to do the install/reboot, plus it allows me do to it at a more opportune time that whatever MS selects.

I always accept a GeForce Experience Update when they become available. I guess this is how I have avoided the "dirty deed" that MS pulls on my main PC.

You should have access to my email, but you could always send me a PM too (I get email notifications of events here :mrgreen:) if you ever want me to do anything at all to help you with whatever I can do, any time at all.
