the clean intsaller did not work for me, clean install of win 10 as well. when it got to the end, it just just said finish and install and wouldn't let me click either one.:eek:

Just to clarify, you start nvcleanstall, select the first option (best driver), it downloads the driver, then it shows two buttons "install" / "show in folder". you cant click either of those?

I figured it out, it was an issue on my end, apologies. It did work for the driver itself, but not for Physx for some reason I still had to install that one manually direct from Nvidia. Latest Win 10, and gtx 1070 laptop, clean install of OS.

Hey it's working fine now though so all is well ^^

I used this to update the last two versions of my GTX 1660 Ti DCH Driver (only) and it worked perfectly both times.

Bitdefender started screwing up the installation as it identifies the workings in the temp folders and so on as suspicious activities. Had to deactivate Bitdefender for installation, other than that everything worked fine.

Does Bitdefender silently cause issues or do you get some kind of notification?

It pops up and says it's found suspicious activity and that it's cleaning up and putting stuff in quarantine.
It leaves the NVCleanstall.exe file alone where it is, but the downloaded driver files and stuff happening in the background after download is what it's stopping

When i installing a new card into the system, i have a generic display adapter, i launch cleanstall, i cant select manually from droplist anything, just use the browse local files option.
My old laptop with gt330m, recognize it, driver version too, but doesnt offer anything. With some prevous build there was in the droplist.
Other pc with 760ti manual select from dropdown list doesnt work either.
So my main issue is 'install best' and 'manual select' dont work for me. Regular drivers not dch, on win7 (laptop) and win 8.1 on desktops.
