    Yeah sorry, it's powershell, using Windows Terminal these days so forgot to differ between them.
    If that fails you might want to try removing the driver with DDU, select the option that prevents Windows driver updates in DDU and then go for a reinstall of the driver.

    If you got any software running that can hook, monitor or edit on the GPU side of things make sure to close it all down before installing.
    As example, I close MSI Afterburner, RTSS + Desktop Overlay and a few other things down every time before installing new driver.

    If so you have to remove some lines under manifest from setup.cfg, see the screenshot below 3 lines after the marked eula.txt.
    Also, if you use audio via your graphics card you might want to keep the audio folder.

    plus, keep nodejs for RTX cards.

    edit: you can allow NGXUpdater.exe to go internet and keep other nvidia related exe's blocked.

    Absolutely no difference in performance whatsoever from the older drivers in dx12 or dx11.

    No sir, it manifested before I had an opportunity to switch to 10-bit, and stayed after the switch to 10 bit.

    With no apps open, the squares did not appear. With apps open they populated screen - but not over the open apps, only on desktop background.
    I can drag mouse cursor over black polygons and the mouse curser stayed intact as if cursor was crossing over small black lakes in desktop. Apps can also occlude black polygons.

    Its very strange, others are reporting same occurrences.

    Currently I use nvslimmer on 472.12 with everything removed except the driver, audio, physx and nvi2 folders, The control panel gets installed and everything works just fine.
    Can I get the same outcome with the 496.13 dch only package ?
    I do not have Windows store, and telemetry is set to 0 in group policy.

    but control panel download for DCH has has other relevant dependencies:

    Appx service must be running
    MS Store cannot be disabled in gpo
    Windows firewall must be on
    Software protection platform service has to be enabled

    nv slimmer does work,
    but for telemetry reduction, after install you'll have to stop nvidia service, and manually delete the ras.dll from nv corp folder (do not delete the RAS folder itself), and reenable the nv service if you choose.

    Hope that helps.

    FWIW, NVcleanstall.exe ver 1.10 worked fine with this driver 496.13. I just picked display driver, HD audio, and PhysX modules.
    I did choose to add control panel option one and MSI mode for IRQ, all worked fine.

    Does anybody know what the "Driver Default" value is in the shader cache size option? I doubt it is 512mb because there is an option to choose 512mb in the drop down.
    It would have been nice if Nvidia listed the size next to the driver default setting.

    what do you guys think the best option is for setting the shader cache size too? Im using a 1tb 980 pro for C: drive lol so no size constraints.

    Also where is the shader cache located? Everybody on the internet it seems thinks they are stored in the DXCache folder but I disabled it in NVCP then checked the DirectX Shader Cache box when doing a disk cleanup but after a restart the DXCache folder is the same size & has the same files in it

    I am also seeing the weird black flashes on my desktop as well. Thought my monitor was going bad but reverted back drivers and I don't have the issue. Hopefully they fix it.

    Disk cleanup shader cache is completely separate to the drivers shader caches.

    The original bug was caused by the EDID to some extent. What mode do you typically set your display to so I can ask our team to revisit this.

    The NVIDIA Control Panel is part of the NVIDIA installer now.
