I was running driver version 441.87 on my RTX 2080 Ti since 9th Feb 2020. No issues. On 24th June when I start my system I noticed a new folder was created: C:\nVidia Corporation\umdlogs. I just deleted it, but then every single day it gets recreated. Just started out of the blue. No driver, windows or any other updates. Hadn't even updated any non-related applications. So I updated the graphics driver. Didn't solve the problem. Post on a nother forum which pointed me here. Downloaded latest DDU and followed the instructions and uninstalled the drivers. The only thing I disabled was the retrieval of drivers from M$ Update, which I had set in group policy anyway (I gather group policy os not applied in safe mode?) After that I was unable to install any version of the nVidia drivers. The installer kept responding "Not compatible with this version of Windows". Say what? Had to restore from a Macrium Image. So there's two issues here... the creation of this empty folder and Not being able to install graphics drivers after using DDU. I use standard drivers. I won't use DCH drivers. At least until there is no other option, at which point I'll look for alternatives.
