    Whenever I try to open NVIDIA nForce Control Panel, it crashes, the details are: AppName: sndstorm.exe AppVer: 1.0.0.298 ModName: sndstorm.exe
    ModVer: 1.0.0.298 Offset: 00013a3d

    My guess as to fixing this problem would be to update a driver, I tried updating my audio driver and rolling it back, didn't fix the problem

    Is there something I need to do with sndstorm.exe?

    I would say that downloading the newer drivers and then removing the old ones should work.

    Remove the drivers and reboot. Allow the machine time to find the hardware and then install the new ones and reboot. If you have already tried it this way, download driver cleaner and boot into safe mode after you have removed your drivers. Run driver cleaner to clean up anything that is left over and then boot into windows and install the new drivers.

    Set a restore point before you do it. Then no worries, right?
