    Default New to NVIDIA

    I have the latest driver 375.70, which I cannot locate with Windows Explorer. Previous drivers have left what look like files that MIGHT BE removed with CCLEANER.
    NVIDIA INSTALL FILES 917,806kb.
    There are files under C:\NVIDIA\DISPLAYDRIVER\375.57. More files in C:\ProgramFiles\NVIDIA CORPORATION. More in C:\ProgramFiles(x86) and C:\ProgramData. A large number of files are in a sub-folder named International.

    Does anyone know what NVIDIA/EVGA 1060 needs to run? I do have EVGA E-FLEET, EVGA OC Scanner X, EVGA Precision XOC and Geforce Experience installed. I am sure that is overkill as I also have MSI Afterburner.

    You only need the official NVIDIA driver for the card to run. The rest is third-party software that can help with customization, overclocking and monitoring. The driver version isn't a file you should be able to find with windows explorer. The file itself is probably a .ini file that lives in the windows system folder, but I'm sure there's much more to it than that. I mean, you have to have registry entries as well.

    GeForce experience will keep you updated on the lastest driver and tell you if you're current or not.
