Hi, Yes, I have the same exact problem. Disabling my anti-virus program's active-protection and Firewall doesn't fix this, even if we add Geforce Experience to the program's exception list. 560Ti Overclocked Core i7 8GB RAM All drivers up to date Windows 7 64-Bits Hope this issue can be fixed soon as I REALLY want to test drive this baby. Thank you.

Can you reach our servers? Open up a cmd shell and type: ping gfe.nvidia.com

I have had the same problem for months. Got tired of it today and seeked help and stumbled in this thread. Had to update manually for three patches now. Disabled ESET entirely, and still nothing. Ping is losing nothing. GTX 680 Core i7 16G Ram Win 7 64

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/15072754/Capture.JPG Regardless of how many times i use the update tool (geForce experience in my case) tells me the last time i checked my driver was 7/12/2012 at 12:14 am. Same thing with the control panel, even though it doesn't give me the option to update through there anymore.

Hi, Found a fix for the "Cannot connect to Nvidia." Nvidia states for the Geforce Experience program to be added to the exception list of the user's Anti-Virus/Firewall/Security software. This is all fine, but they forgot to mention that, for updates, you also need to add the Nvidia Update program ([b][i]daemonu.exe[/i][/b]) to that exception list as well. The file is located on the [b]'Nvidia Update Core'[/b] directory of your Nvidia's installation directory. In my case [b]"C:\Program Files(x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\NVIDIA Update Core\daemonu.exe"[/b] Once you had this to the exception list of your security program, start Geforce Experience and run the program update (with your games directory already picked on the Games option menu), just look at those games popping up on the Geforce Experience main screen. Hope this helps. Thank you.

Unfortunately, that did nothing. AVG already had the NVIDIA Settings Update Manager (daemonu.exe) set to allow for all... Checking for updates gives me a Cannot Connect to NVIDIA error and GFE isn't finding any games as a result. Oddly enough it also says that I last checked for updates on the 11/8/2012... it's 2013, lol.

Firewall/ avg security have been set to allow the Proper files and update managers, and still when I go to update the drivers it says "cannot connect to NVIDIA please try again later". This is all to fix the periodic freezes that occur when playing a game and the driver is out of date. Any help would be appreciated! GTX 460 Core i5 3.10 8gb RAM Win 7 64

Hi, Nvidia has confirmed there was a problem with their servers recently. They also say they fixed it already. However, I am too getting the "Cannot connect to NVidia" message. As such, it is very likely this recent wave of "Cannot connect" messages is a problem at Nvidia and not related to a specific Anti-Virus. In regards to AVG, is it possible it has a second-layer of security exceptions? Still, I think the problem is not AVG as I have ESET NOD and it is giving me the "Cannot Connect" message. So, we'll just have to wait. :-)
