All right im noob here and was wondering wtf this is 5gb really???
Maybe more than one driver complied in a folder.
Have you installed drivers more than one time?
Try deleting it out.
There is a folder with all the previous drivers. Usually on the drive windows in on called Nvidia. Not in program files but just on the drive youll see mine is 1.4GB and only have like 5-6 drivers in there.
Check the above folder for old installed drivers. The nVidia driver installer caches all driver versions in that folder. You need to clean it out periodically to gain back that space.
I agree because even those older drivers can cause issues with new hardware installs.
Um why would the C:\nvidia folder be showing up in his installed application control panel. No something is wrong here.
I followed Erockers guide
Uninstall old drivers, restart in safe mode & use Driver Sweeper (download it if you don't have) to get rid of other Nvidia files, just click the "Nvidia-Display" & analyse it then clean it. Restart normally & install new drivers
pulling the net cord definitely helps too
