|I am running Microsoft xp 3. Running PSI 2.0. I finnally patch my Nivida driver. I held off for a while. A year ago I updated the driver and when install it had really screwed up the video on my computer real bad. It was a real bear to get it fix. After installing PSI it had kept showing Nivida drivers needed patch. I kept ignoring the notice. Finnaly I decided to give it a shot. It did the patch and no problems to the video occur. In fact nothing appear to change as for as video function and properties go .Odd! But a glitch in PSI occur. This is the first glitch I had with PSI. The problem that is occuring is that when Windows exploer starts, PSI alert pop up stating that a Nivida patch is install. Then a few seconds later a pop up state that the Nivida patch has been remove. I have rescan and the Nivida never occurs to need a patch and then I check and it appears that the Nivida driver is up to date! This has been going on ever since I patch this driver. Is there a fix for this problem are is there more info needed?|

|I would suggest manually updating the driver via nvidia.com and then run a new Secunia scan after the fact. That for me has always been my #1 workaround to Secunia not behaving exactly as I want (like auto updates scheduled that never actually begin). Plus, unless I'm mistaken on nvidia driver updates specifically, manually getting it will give you the option to set advanced settings in the Install Wizard (like location, etc) that would automatically be chosen otherwise.
