NVIDIA Update stops working - 275.27 beta AD Network Security policy
I'm running Win7 Enterprise x64 on a secure network under Active Directory. Install of 275.27 drivers and Update went fine, and Update seemed to start OK from the Help tab of NVCP. After reboots, I [u]think[/u] system/network policy stops Update from working. Whenever I invoke Update I get a MS C++ runtime error and then an Update crash. A reinstall of Update makes it temporarily work again, until the next reboot.

What are the default ownership and permissions supposed to be for the UpdateusUser profile directory? Is there a simple way for me to stop the Update crashes without having to modify security policy? I cannot assign the "Log on as a service" right to UpdateusUser using secpol.msc- it's grayed out.

Using GTX 460.

The NVIDIA Update Service Daemon service failed to start due to the following error:
The service did not start due to a logon failure.

The nvUpdatusService service was unable to log on as .\UpdatusUser with the currently configured password due to the following error:
Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer.

Service: nvUpdatusService
Domain and account: .\UpdatusUser

This service account does not have the required user right "Log on as a service."

User Action

Assign "Log on as a service" to the service account on this computer. You can use Local Security Settings (Secpol.msc) to do this. If this computer is a node in a cluster, check that this user right is assigned to the Cluster service account on all nodes in the cluster.
