I came across this in a thread at WP and it is an amazing way to utterly gut the nVidia drivers of any and all bloatware and just leave the bare essentials. I follow the how to guide and do it myself; https://forums.guru3d.com/threads/441-87-clean-version.421390/ If you scroll down you will see the; Essentially you: - DL latest driver, - unzip it into folder (I use 7zip), - delete all the unessential from that folder (Step 3), - restart into Safe mode and run DDU, - reboot into normal OS and install the clean driver from the folder. It is a lot quicker without the bloatware and on my GTX1070 I have yet to experience any problems and in fact have had improvements in one that was very laggy (WOT) although Ping and packet loss looked fine and I was suspecting it was the GPU drivers. It is working as expected in RDR2 where many seem to have a multitude of different GPU issues for many varied reasons. I do have one outlier which I am trying to resolve being the 'NVPCF' folder which I cannot find in the above thread. Here is a detailed discussion on all of the folders present in the nVidia driver and whether it is necessary or not; https://github.com/CHEF-KOCH/nVidia-modded-Inf/blob/master/Docs/nVidia Driver package structure/Driver.md Either way I have become a big fan of this method and have used it for the last 2 driver packages.
