I haven't used the start menu since XP, probably.

Classic Windows. My personal favorite was a recent update that reset the Start icons. A happy little accident...

It didn't just reset the start icons. It also added a new column of them on my PC w/ stuff like Groove music, added something called Microsoft People to my task bar that I promptly removed, and reset several of my preferred applications back to the Microsoft defaults... It also took forever to install. I was not very happy that day.

I have a 1060, glad I didn't get around to the last drivers yet. I tend not to update unless I'm playing or about to play a very recent release. Prevents a lot of issues.

But, how can this be? Nvidia has no driver issues. Ever.

Given that this was only happening with this specific version of this driver, it's more of an NVIDIA problem I'd say.

People still love to go on about how buggy AMD drivers are but in the last year, the number of driver flubs NVIDIA's made (including that one version that bricked a bunch of cards by turning their fans off) is incredible. But NVIDIA seems to get away with murder these days (said as a 1080 owner.)
