This driver gives the same performance as version 326.29 based on test with battlefield 3, Grid 2 and Torchlight 2 on Windows 8 Pro 64. Perfectly stable during gaming.

But when trieing to shut down the pc it reboots. Did 4 tries.

Any of you have the same problem?

If you disable all of the options in GeForce experience or uninstall GeForce experience in add/remove programs, is the problem gone?

 After cleaning the driver using Driversweeper, I reinstalled this driver without GeForce experience and without 3D vision.


I also cleaned and updated all other drivers using the driveragent.com from the laptopvideo2go.com website.


Now all problems are resolved.
