Further to PC-Mag's suggestions, I installed yesterday your highly praised UnChecky utility.
Today, I updated the nVidia video-card drivers from a downloaded copy of the Installer, while having your utility actively running in the background.
To my surprise, at the point during the installation sequence at which I was supposed to select which drivers to actually update, ALL checkboxes were CHECKED (which, incidentally, was what I would have selected myself)!
Again, no harm was done, but was UnChecky not supposed to actually UNCHECK all checkboxes and have me check them as needed & requested?
Your insight on the matter will be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your attention to this matter,
