    I did check the post in its entirety but it was not visible for me yesterday for some reason (I even ctrl+f it). I see it now, thanks!

    So much Hotfixes...
    Nvidia should fire all the driver testing team XD

    I was ironic...but somehow i think that all the point of WHQL certification become useless
    Some of the problems of the released drivers are really easy to spot with proper testing, the pattern it's Buggy Driver release -> Hotfix next day
    Do not seems so nice to me.

    They could implement an Insiders Beta Driver and a Stable release one for example

    A fellow SVP user? You, Sir, have a good taste. ;)

    I can clean one for you in several hours, or you can refer to the bottom of the OP - there is a manual cleaning guide.

    @Blackfyre
    Clean 431.70 WHQL - I also removed all of the Nvidia telemetry, so don't freak out when it says the driver isn't signed during installation.

    It wasn't, as @Blackfyre is using Gtx 1070. But glad it works for you.

    signed up just to ask, in the "clean" version of the driver provided here, a file "NVtelemetry64.dll" still exists in the "driver" directory, is this file verified to be harmless on its own?

    In that case, Welcome to the forum!

    Some other components rely on it, but file by itself is harmless. DisplayDriverRAS.dll on the other hand actually sends stuff.

    As of late Nvidia has integrated some of the telemetry components into the core driver itself, so just fully "removing" them as it used to be by deleting them is now impossible (unless there was some new development that I missed out on).

    Nevertheless, there is a workaround that works and breaks the telemetry chain resulting in no data being sent out.

    The above method is not included in the clean driver (for now). But takes like 10 seconds to implement manually.

    thanks for the welcome, and the info was most useful!

    I was actually plotting on how to bypass this too, my first idea was to edit the inf file but windows complained it had been tampered with when i tried to install, feels like that is a protection system working backwards allowing undesirable software in.

    my second idea was a little different though, I think it is technically a 'clean bypass? I was simply going to use windows firewall to block outgoing requests from NVtelemetry64.dll I guess I should block DisplayDriverRAS.dll instead, or just block outgoing network access to all dll files that came as part of the driver (it's the only way to be sure?)

    it should work right ? could maybe even be integrated to the clean driver somehow as part of the install? thought I may just end up doing the dirty install, I like the idea of that dll not even existing on my drive so long as the drives work fine and don't flag me a hack/cheater or anything with what few games i do play

    Thanks
