    Are you using any kind of network filtering? For example, pi-hole will block some of the domains that GFE needs to "phone home" and communicate metrics back to NVIDIA (which can be considered a violation of privacy, hence why it is blocked by default).

    Can't say I have, and I had to login again after I updated to the 416.16 driver last week.

    Nah no filtering, other than what win8.1 does by default. It's worked before for ages, just started this at some point in the last few
    months. I've reinstalled it a couple times here and there, it's the same when logged in, weird double windows, pretty unusable.
    No other issues with the full time use PC, gaming or all day at work.

    Have you used DDU to do a full, clean reinstall each time? I always run DDU first then install my graphics drivers.

    I did this last time going from 1060 to 1080, full DDU with reboots and ccleaner and the whole rigamarole.
    It's been screwed up long before and still is after.

    FIXED, set GFE to ignore screen scaling and bam, kinda fat looking but it works fine now. NV tech support was also stumped when I tried em this afternoon.

    Great end to the story. I'll keep that in mind.

    Huh. I use 150% scaling and never had this issue.
