    This happened to me yesterday as I uninstalled all Nvidia programs in programs files ( I wanted to clean up old files and reg).
    I didn't use DDU but maybe this helps none the less. I did disable WU so it couldn't DL and install the driver. I first uninstalled HD audio and PhysX which needed a reboot on each to clear, then I did display driver and again rebooted.
    After about 30sec before I could install new driver I see windows installed drivers, but if you looked at program files nothing shown, but Device manager does, so I installed new drivers and then check DiverStoreExplore and I see 2 entries for NV, one with "Nv_dispi.inf" and one "nv_dispiwu.inf" and I think the last is from WU and that was what it installed.
    I do clean out old ones but being the naming is different DiverSoreexplorer doesn't mark it as old, guess should have removed that one first.

    Anyway, though it might help others I normally never run into this and guess most user either if you just use NV installer.

    I did not notice that I downloaded your old sources. New ones (WPF) are good.

    With the latest drivers 430.64, I'm noticing two new files in the C:\Windows Folder

    NvContainerRecovery.bat
    NvTelemetryContainerRecovery.bat

    So just a heads up if you didn't know already.

    They were there in the past too. They are already removed by DDU when you tick the option to remove Geforce Experience.

    hello sir
    can you remove any entries that the nvidia driver install puts into the windows store in any permutation? It seem there are entries for analytics in windows store even when a non DCH driver is used.

    My bad, I saw someone else mention then that they were new additions to the 430.64 install, I checked mine and sure enough they were also there, thought you might want to know about them, but I guess you knew and they are not "new either.

    Seeking your assistance with this issue i encountered. i recently upgraded my Nvidia GPU and now im getting the following issues:
    • low resolution in Windows 10 safe mode
    • low resolution in Windows 10 loading screen (windows 10 logo + spinning circle)
    Here's what i did prior to this happening
    • Boot into Windows 10 normally
    • Press Shift Restart to boot into Windows 10 Safe Mode
    • In Windows 10 Safe Mode, Run the DDU (Clean and shutdown)
    • Replaced GPU
    • Booted into Windows 10
    • Tried to install new Nvidia Drivers but apparently Windows 10 already installed it
    • Rebooted back to Windows 10 safe mode
    • Run DDU (Clean and restart)
    • While restarting, powered down Modem
    • Booted into a super low resolution of windows 10
    • Installed Nvidia Drivers / GeFExperience
    • Windows 10 changed the resolution, detected the widescreen 1440p monitor

    1- Both of your issue or not realated to DDU
    2- You issue usually happen when you are not using UEFI in the bios or if you GPU is not UEFI compilant.
    3- If in normal mode it doesn't happen and everything is normal then you can safely ignore them.

    i use DDU which restarts the pc into safe mode automatically and removes the driver, very easy to use, no issues, ofc, installing new driver has to be with clean install option
