    I am trying to update drivers for NVIDIA software. NVIDIA website is NO help at all.

    #1 - While trying to update my
    "NVIDIA nForce 590/570/550 Serial ATA Controller"
    I got an Error Message: "C:NVIDIA\nForceWin2k\15.23\IS\Thumbs.db - Access denied"

    AND Error Message: "NVIDIA Setup Error - Previous NVIDIA Windows
    software have been detected. To ensure proper installation of the new
    drivers, it is necessary to uninstall the current drivers."


    #2 - While trying to update my "NVIDIA Network Bus Enumerator"
    I got an Error Message: " Access denied"

    AND Error Message: "NVIDIA Setup Error - Previous NVIDIA Windows software have been detected. To ensure proper installation of the new drivers, it is necessary to uninstall the current drivers."


    I Currently have in my system the following NVIDIA programs:

    under “C:\NVIDIA”-
    “nForceWin 2k”
    “nForceWin 2KXP”
    “nForceWin XP”
    “Win 2k”

    Under Program Files:
    “NetworkAccessManager”
    “9.16_nforce_winxp_international_whql.exe”
    “175.16_geforce_winxp_32bit_englich_whql.exe”
    “nforce_winxp32_15.17_international.exe”
    “nforce_winxp32_15.17_international.exe.xml”

    What am I supposed to UNinstall?????????

    Hi there,

    Go to Add/Remove Programs, and remove anything nVidia. Then go to C:\ and right click on the NVIDIA folder. Tick the box next to read-only and click Apply. Then untick the box and click OK. This will reset the folder permissions. Now restart and try again to update the drivers. Also, make sure you are not using a "Limited Account".

    Hope this helps.
