    Here's an important article discussing the recent problems with Nvidia graphics drivers causing the system to freeze, hang, BSOD, or crash when browsing with hardware acceleration enabled or playing games, with detailed analysis of Event Viewer logs and BSOD minidump files, workaround by rolling back or installing the 314.22 and the latest version of the Nvidia driver, possible side effects and resolution of choppy playback in Flash Player in Firefox caused by the Nvidia 3D Vision plugin for older versions of the graphics driver, slow loading of the browser due to disabled Nvidia streaming services, other tips and tricks, and more. Try to enjoy.

    Maybe I'm at 6s & 7s about this but my Nvidia GeForce 327.23 is listed as up to date. That's way past 314.22.

    There was 314, then 327, then 331, to the best of my memory.
    The most current one is 331.65 btw. But again, the problems depend on your card.

    All those with the latest nVidia drivers, can you try Google Earth? There are reports that it breaks Google Earth. The drivers broke mine.
