    I noticed this question has been asked multiple times in pretty all the newer driver threads, so this'll be the end-all of all those questions:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NVIDIA Corporation\Global\NvCplApi\Policies]
    "DevPolicies"=dword:00000000
    "ModePolicies"=dword:00000000
    "ModePersist_GPU:0_Mode:0"=hex:00,00,00,00,40,00,0 0,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,\
    05,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,05,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00 ,00,00,00
    "LutPersistDesktop_GPU:0_Head:0"=hex:00,00,00,00,6 4,00,00,00,64,00,00,00,64,00,\
    00,00,64,00,00,00,64,00,00,00,64,00,00,00,64,00,00 ,00,64,00,00,00,64,00,00,\

    "LutPersistFSVM_GPU:0"=hex:00,00,00,00,64,00,00,00 ,47,00,00,00,47,00,00,00,5a,\
    00,00,00,45,00,00,00,45,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00 ,00,00,00,00,00,00

    Just go in reg edit and put that new dword; SedonaDriver and apply
    in those little changes down below in other values and get old cp just in few sec.

    BIGWORM, you hit the nail on the head, but most of those entries are unnecessary. Also, that fix only disables the new CP without the ability to switch back and forth.

    Disables the new CP and leaves the old CP:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NVIDIA Corporation\Global\NvCplApi\Policies]
    "SedonaDisable"=dword:00000001

    Enables ability to switch between old and new CPs:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NVIDIA Corporation\Global\NvCplApi\Policies]
    "SedonaDisable"=dword:00000002

    Let me know if these do not work.

    Enable old CP: works for XP, not sure about Vista.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NVIDIA Corporation\Global\NvCplApi\Policies]
    "ContextUIPolicy"=dword:00000001
    "TaskbarUIPolicy"=dword:00000002
    "CplGroupUIPolicy"=dword:00000003
    "SedonaDisable"=dword:00000000

    Or as suggested use NvTray...

    Thanks, i vote for a sticky aswell, i spent ages searching the internet till i found this. Thanks. I use:

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NVIDIA Corporation\Global\NvCplApi\Policies]
    "DevPolicies"=dword:00000000
    "ModePolicies"=dword:00000000
    "ModePersist_GPU:0_Mode:0"=hex:00,00,00,00,40, 00,0 0,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,\
    05,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,05,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00 ,00,00,00
    "LutPersistDesktop_GPU:0_Head:0"=hex:00,00,00, 00,6 4,00,00,00,64,00,00,00,64,00,\
    00,00,64,00,00,00,64,00,00,00,64,00,00,00,64,00,00 ,00,64,00,00,00,64,00,00,\
    00
    "LutPersistFSVM_GPU:0"=hex:00,00,00,00,64,00,0 0,00 ,47,00,00,00,47,00,00,00,5a,\
    00,00,00,45,00,00,00,45,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00 ,00,00,00,00,00,00
    "ContextUIPolicy"=dword:00000001
    "CplGroupUIPolicy"=dword:00000001
    "TaskbarUIPolicy"=dword:00000001
    "SedonaDisable"=dword:00000002
    This adds the classic control panel, the ability to switch, and the temperature monitor.
