    DON'T! I downloaded that, Extracted the files with z-zip - It will install ALL kinds of malicious CRAP and CACK into your system.

    Just use Windows update to download new drivers, and use GeForce Experience to download new Video drivers - DONT USE crap programs like this.

    Hello Alfatide,

    Personally, I wouldn't use those sites since many of them are nothing but scams or virus/malware infested. Instead, only get your drivers from the device manufacturer's site.
