259.47 Made a new user account called 'UpdatusUser'
  1 / 2    
Can someone explain to me why 259.47 is creating a whole new user account called 'UpdatusUser'?

That seems like a really stupid thing to do.


Also what does Updatus actualy do?

I might be wrong, but 259.47WHQL is not a general Geforce/Ion driver release for all Desktop cards
I believe it was released to Microsoft for WHQL release on Windows Update for select HP OEM Laptops/Notebooks
Perhaps the user is something to do with that?
Not sure, I am curious....

I checked the registry for some of the exe's in \Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\NVIDIA Updatus\ (Im on Win7 x64) and apparantly its for "NVIDIA Update Service Daemon" which does (and again Im quoteing the description from the registry entry) "NVIDIA Settings Update Manager service, used to check new updates from NVIDIA server.".

It's a System Service set to run Automatically (Delayed Start) running as UpdatusUser. I'm going to change it to use Local System, Set to Manual and then delete the UpdatusUser user account and folder.

Your right, but It fixes the severe DPC Latency issue with my Intel P35 Express chipset when the card is in 2D mode.

-------

Next time I'll download un-offical drivers from Laptopvideo2go instead of ripping the cab off of the windows update site.


Consider my question answered (And sorry for any miss-spelled words, I just re-installed and am on IE8 without spellcheck). /teehee.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':teehee:' />

Update:
I completly removed it by going to "\Program Files (x86)\InstallShield Installation Information\" (Im on 64 bit windows) finding the Updatus installer folder and then running setup.exe with the '/uninst' switch.

Also I found a PvSonyDLL MSI installer that was also installed along with the 259.47 in 'C:\Windows\Installer', I just right clicked on the MSI and chose Uninstall.


Anyway, MORAL OF THE STORY kids: DON'T install unoffical drivers(unless you don't have a choice). =P

It's official, but not for the hardware I installed it on (like JohnZS said its for a OEM laptop, probably a Sony).


Also it wasnt pushed through the standard Windows Update app, I downloaded it directly -

In other words, you bypassed the normal WU detection route, which [i]might[/i]'ve made a difference. I know nothing's shown up on my stops to the WU site - I don't download automatically but I do stop by every Tuesday.

But as to the update redirection towards nVidia's site, I can think of one reason off the top of my head that would be beneficial for the [i]regular[/i] user. WU updates aren't released with the same frequency that the nVidia site seeds them, and the nVidia site is already set up for hardware detection via the updater. It would tend to keep them more up-to-date and would be in line with the general industry push to override most users' tendency to ignore the necessity of things like security updates.

But, as usual, those of us with customized configurations don't always want to play "follow the leader" like lambs behind the lead goat...

It did? Thats good news. You got to like that.
