    Doing this would prevent running anti-cheat software and people would not be able to play most MP games. If you really care about data collection then add something like pi-hole to your network. Stopping data collection from just one app isn't gonna do anything to your privacy.

    That is true but I play MP games that doesn't have this kind of anti-cheat software so it isn't affecting me. It isn't about privacy only though... I use custom DNS server so I am pretty much covered on that side about privacy... it is also about trying to lower the overhead that Nvidia drivers gets added with it and the amount of bloat/loggings/tracings on driver levels. All these stuff pretty sure use CPU/GPU cycles at least.

    At least when customizing the driver... I still have WHQL status on a custom Nvidia driver ;)

    Which really shouldn't cause too much issue with anti-cheat software unless they are pretty stubborn.

    It isn't about one app on nvidia... its a multiple of services with it + Deep down on drivers level... all that with just Nvidia drivers alone.. useless with no benefits except collecting/logging/etc... why need all that dirt on driver level + a multiple of services with it for a damn GPU driver? I believe those kind of things to be made for Beta driver releases where a developer gets benefits from those kind of stuff... but other than that.. why implement it on Stable releases too? it doesn't make sense to me.

    Generally... It might not make a difference for High End Spec PC's/Laptops but it will surely make a difference on Low-Mid Tier PC's/Laptops in general. Personally I like my stuff to be clean :)

    I use Pi-Hole on my network and love it.

    Thanks! Are there any other tips or files you forgot to mention? From your post and those links, I might be able to build this into a bat script. Here's what I've got for the pre-cleaned version:
    Code:
    @echo off
    :: Driver
    rem [HD Audio, PhysX]
        c: & cd %UserProfile%\Downloads & for /D %%G in ("GTX*") do cd "%%G"
        rd /S /Q "HDAudio"
        rd /S /Q "PhysX"
    rem [DisplayDriverRAS.dll]
        cd Display.Driver
        type NUL > DisplayDriverRAS.dll
    rem [GPU Unsigned Driver Skip]
        echo set wshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell"):Do:ret = wshShell.AppActivate("Windows Security"):If ret = True Then:wshShell.SendKeys "{TAB}{ENTER}":End If:WScript.Sleep 500:Loop>GPUUnsignedDriverSkip.vbs
        start "" "GPUUnsignedDriverSkip.vbs"
    rem [Silent Install]
        cd ..
        setup.exe -s -clean -noreboot
        START /wait taskkill /f /im wscript.exe
    rem [Nvidia Profile Updater]
