What is NVIDIA Grafikdrivrutin?

The NVIDIA Graphics Driver is the software driver for NVIDIA Graphics GPU installed on the PC. It is a program used to communicate from the Windows PC OS to the device. This software is required in most cases for the hardware device to function properly. In most cases, drivers come with Windows or can be found by going to Windows Update in Control Panel and checking for updates as well as downloaded from the NVIDIA support website. This is the first WHQL-certified release from the Release 296 family of drivers.

Overview

Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. When installed, it will add a context menu handler to the Windows shell in order to provide quick access to the program. The setup package generally installs about 49 files and is usually about 282.37 MB (296,086,168 bytes).
