After several bouts of blue screen error nv4dll, here's what I've tried;
Rebooted HD with toshiba restore disc. Unistalled then reinstalled NV drivers (original). Not activated Nview wizard exe.
My questions are that now things seem to be working fine (24 hrs with game on and no blue screen), is there a chance that activating the nview properties will start this blue problem again? And, is it worth it to update the drivers. I read that as far as speed and stability are concerned, the original drivers provide about the best. Comp is Toshiba P20, Pent 4, 3.4, 1Gb, Fx go5700 128 mb. It performs well on the games I play so far.
:tazz: What causes these things to suddenly start happening anyway?
Now, I don't want to do anything to start this up again. Can deleting 'old files' using cleaner utilities or regisry cleaners cause this?

Registry cleaners can cause this, use either of these

This is for a one month trial

http://www.tune-up.com

Run disc clean up then registry clean up, click optimize then run reg defrag, which needs a reboot

This is for a free cleaner

http://www.filehippo...d_ccleaner.html

Run the cleaner, then press issues to run scan for issues, press fix selected issues and always take the option to make a back up, and save them to a folder you create for storing these, if you get a problem, you double click the back up and select merge to undo the changes

If you have a Nvidia graphics card, can you please tell me what driver version you have?

:tazz: I believe it is version 5.6.8.7.. So far the last install is holding out. I might not bother to update unless there is a significant difference in performance. In the past I've also had problems with slow frame rates and jerky animation in games but it seemed like that was being caused by other programs running that I could not find or shut down. I have AVP, adaware, spy bot. I follwed Keiths advice and downloaded the apps he recommended. The Nview properties are working the way they're supposed to so I'm hoping it's B'Bye to the blue screen forever. :) .
Thanx for your interest.
