Nvidia 260 Driver Installation Failing

I have been having a problem Installing drivers for the 260. This has been happening ever since 185.85 and is still not resolved in 285.38. I cannot install any recent drivers at all.

I have the Same issue, seems as if an older firmware messed up the Registry Keys and wont allow for me to remove them so i can update drivers.
I used many freeware registry cleaners aswell as some Microsoft programs. The Key is not null and cannot be removed i cannot take control of it and is becoming more of a hassle then what it should. I'm trying many supposed solutions with no avail. I'll still have add it till i can get it removed or an answer. To be honest if i have to format just to install drivers that Nvidia screwed up im gonna be pretty ticked.

Need i say i have a GTX 295 and these are the Registry Keys: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\NvViewHelperLib.CNvViewObject.1\ & HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\NvViewHelperLib.CNvViewObject\

I tried to look in the forum for some sort of solution about this... I still haven't found a solution... Any nvidia representative has any idea about what to do?

Same here. Driver fails to install - full permissions to directories needed. Driver Sweeper 3.2.0 will not remove HKEY_CLASSES_Root\NvViewHelperLib.CNvViewObject\ and HKEY_CLASSES_Root\NvViewHelperLib.CNvViewObject.1\. CC Cleaner does not pick them up. Regedit states that the entries are corrupted. Followed all on-line clean install guides/suggestions. I've spent over a week trying to get a driver to work with my 560 TI. Vista 64.

5 months on and the problem persists, I will have to change to a AMD card.

I really have no option.

Guys, I have a solution! First you should remove everything nvidia related you can with both whatever program you use to clean registry entries(I use Driver Fusion Premium) and manually through regedit - give yourself permission when necessary like in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionSetupPnpLockdownFiles case. Don't mind HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTNvViewHelperLib.CNvViewObject.1 and HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTNvViewHelperLib.CNvViewObject they will persist. Then download latest driver update from the ofsite and [u]unpack it somewhere[/u]. Then use Windows Device Manager to initiate driver update manually - and specify where it should look for the driver. Thats it! Hope it will help those of you who have not yet moved to AMD. PS Mine is 560Ti.
