C:\Program Files\NVIDIA -- window pops up

    Two problems.

    1.) When I start my computer these days, a window pops up titled C:\Program Files\NVIDIA.
    It contains a file folder icon and an Nvidia file.

    2.) In my control panels, I also have Nvidia Nview Desktop Manager, but when I click on it I receive an error loading message, and 'the specified module could not be found'.

    I was looking at the Nvidia Control panel a couple of months ago, trying to figure out this and that, and I ran 'Tune System' and some other options. (By the way, there was a big improvement in the games I play.) I must have accidentally done something else to create the pop up window, and error messages, but I don't know what.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    (I did do a search on this topic, but while I saw other Nvidia problems I didn't see anything about these problems.)

    Thank you.

    Try uninstalling your NVIDIA software and reinstalling it.

    The current driver version for the NVIDIA GeForce 6200 for Windows XP is 285.58 and was released about 2 weeks ago.


    Download and save it, then close all open windows first, then install it.

    It should overwrite and replace the old version you have.


    None of the NVIDIA-related startup entries need to remain checked.

    Start - Run - MSCONFIG - OK - "Startup" tab

    None of the NVIDIA-related service entries need to be on Automatic. They can be set on Manual.

    Start - Run - SERVICES.MSC - OK
