GeForce Experience - Warning

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I installed the latest NVidia GeForce Experience which includes a replacement for ShadowPlay.

Subsequently when running FSX, I found that clicking on certain menu items resulted in FSX hanging :sad:

In Task Manager, I found a few instanced of NVIDIA_SHADE.EXE running so I deleted those and FSX continued :Hmmmph:

Today, I uninstalled GeForce Experience and FSX is back to normal :smile:

I too have found this program to be non functional or causing strange things with many other games. You would this type of program right from the device driver makers would be near flawless, guess not.

I agree and it's not limited to video drivers!

Yep, it's off my system too. Can't remember what the issue was, not serious, a minor annoyance, but I uninstalled it immediately.

 

I do wish companies like Nvidia would stick to just providing drivers and forget about all the other useless nonsense they like to clutter our drives with.

A while ago I had a problem with the NVIDIA control panel and NVI not retaining any settings that I changed. Someone on another forum advised me to remove GeForce Experience and, suddenly, everthing worked normally again. It seems to cause more problems than it solves.

Interesting. I recently installed the latest and now everything is on the dark side in P3d and I can't get it back to normal.

I also stopped using all the extra stuff that comes with the NV driver updates. Totally unnecessary for most people. Unless you specifically know that you need it for a certain application, you do not need it and you are inviting potential for problems. 

 

When installing the driver, deselect everything that you can, leaving only the base driver checkbox (which you cannot deselect anyway) before clicking the "next" button.

 

Also a good idea to use DDU Display Driver Uninstaller if you are planning to redo your graphics driver install. Probably not really necessary but you want to totally wipe out all this other stuff. Many also recommend rebuilding the shader cache after a GPU driver install/update.

All good here. I always liked Shadowplay because it makes me able to record videos really easily without performance loss. 
And in other games too i can recover the last 10-15 minutes of gameplay in case i had an "epic" action to show.

Like Vortex681 above, I removed GeForce Experience when I was informed that it was the source of my Nvidia Inspector problem. I didn't need it, so it has been booted!

GeForce Experience --> another app not needed for anyone doing flight simming.

Agreed, I've stopped blindly clicking updates.

 

Even to the point of reading the driver updates, seems some of them are game specific issues, if I don't play those games, do I really need to update my driver? Sometimes I think I'm on borrowed time before something blows up. Since I've stopped updating everything I see, I've had no "new" issues to deal with.

I only really consider updating graphics drivers when I need to. Upgrading because the readme states that I will see a 2% increase in framerate is not what I would call essential.

I have installed Windows Fall Creators Update without problems. But then GeForce Experience didn't work, so I update the driver to v387.92 and now, although it says that is recording my video and then saving it, I cannot find the video it claims to have created. Also my last recording session produced a massive flicker of the sim. So now waiting for a new driver version.

You could give a try of completely uninstalling driver, reboot and then install with "clean install" option..

I currently have the latest Nvidia driver for my 1080Ti. After reading this thread I uninstalled the GeForce Experience and that 3D stuff that installs with it. But I have always used it to upgrade my driver's. So without it, what is a foolproof way that us easy to install new drivers going forward? Possibly just install GeForce Experience again, download a new driver and then uninstall it again?
