Reviewed nVIDIA GeForce Drivers for Windows 536.23

I had no problems upgrading a GTX 960. But I always do a clean uninstall using Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) first. You never trust the Nvidia (or AMD) uninstall program to work properly. Read full review

These drivers implement CUDA 5.5, which is used on GPUGrid. I have two GTX 660s running fine with no errors at the moment under Win7 64-bit. Read full review

I use my Nvidia cards mainly for Folding@home, and the 295 series causes crashes on my GT 240 and GTX 560 Ti (Win7 64-bit). So I have gone back to 290.53 beta, which works fine for my needs. Read full review

Reviewed NextPVR 4.1.1

I have been recording with NextPVR and its predecessor GB-PVR for about 5 years. Some guy needs to read the Wiki.

Version 2.3.6 is the best yet, and works great with HDHomeRun Prime, and a lot of other tuners. Read full review

This works well, and is a much easier way to install Flash on both IE and Firefox (and others). There is one error message about permissions on start up, but just click past that and it works.

If you don't want the adware, then don't install it. Read full review

Reviewed Adobe Flash Player for Windows (Internet Explorer)

I have no problem with Flash itself, but the installer is fairly hopeless, especially on Internet Explorer.

Use "Alternative Flash Player Auto-Updater" instead. Problem solved, on both IE and non-IE plugin versions (e.g., Firefox). Read full review

Reviewed DivX for Windows 10.8.9

Works great for me. I re-compress HD MPEG2 videos that I have recorded from my cable company into smaller files that will fit on a DVD. DivX is the best I have found for that, taking about 4 hours for an hour-long 1080i show for HD 720p output.... Read full review
