It hung me up once, and froze me second.

Uninstalled.

I know, I know, there is no point in having it, but I only did because of the auto-update driver function. Suppose I could just check the site here and then... I definitely learned my lesson, never again will I use a console-favoring program.

UHG!


So considering it wouldn't un-freeze, I just resorted to flipping the power switch on the back of my case. I got the "Windows didn't shut down normally." and I'm not worried about that, but I'm wondering if doing this has any negative effects on hardware, or even software? Thanks.

Any time the power cuts out, you run the risk of getting some corrupted data. Whether it's a power outage or you just flipping the switch on your PSU, the risk is the same. That's why it's always a good idea to use both system restore (which I admit has failed me a lot when I tried using it) and system backup (making an image of your boot drive.)

I've never had an issue with GeForce Experience, and I mostly have it for the automatic driver updates as well, although it's not hard to just update them yourself. Maybe I should get rid of it. The "optimized settings" for each game are questionable, and it only finds 5/18 of my games as well, so it's not terribly useful.

I've had no problems with GeForce Experience, I don't know what you're talking about TC.

Unless you have 500 series cards, you probably wouldn't have problems.

Oh, and does this apply to the computer rebooting on its own, or simply a cut of power?

Yeah, my old PC had a 580 and it would shut down with some critical error every time.

Just built a new PC with a 780 and it works flawlessly. lol
