Agree with everyone on here, bad experience. On my laptop it deleted all the drivers and was causing my GPU to not be detected and not allowing me to install any new drivers, saying the hardware did not exist. Big mistake.

Causes graphic drivers to be unstable on my GTX 460. And it completely fails to detect my installed games

I thought Nvidia was telling me an update was available, but it was a whole download of some other crap and now Windows Media Player isn't displaying images on screen when I play a dvd, only the sound, which is really pissing me off. My pc is WinXP, not 7, 8 or any other useless numeric platform microsoft try to force on the world. If I remove this will windows media player be restored back to normal or will I have a whole lot of aggro to go through?

Geforce Experience is just a plain BAD experience!! It makes my clean install of Win8 Pro self-reboot EVERY TIME... I was running Win8 Pro for a couple weeks without any issues and deceided to try out the Geforce Experience software, BIG MISTAKE!! Now, no matter if I completly shut down my laptop or do an hibernation, when I start it back up, it just reboots by itself just before loading windows and then it lets me log in normally. It wasn't doing that before I installed Geforce Experience, so if it's a coincidence, it's really well timed! I think that this beta version is completly wacked and should not be installed at all. The bad, but REALLY BAD thing is that now, for reasons unknown and unforeseen, I can't uninstall it at all. Tried in the programms and features and even if I click uninstall, it doesn't do anything. This is really plain old bad programming!!
