    Default 8800GTS/ForceWare 163.75 problems?

    Just got myself a new 8800GTS 320MB with the latest 163.75 drivers. Card works flawlessly, except for one little yet annoying problem: when I switch user, then logs back in, the names of files and folders on the desktop disappears. I can still open them, and when they are highlighted I can see dark silhouettes for the names of the files/folders.

    The card idles at 33 degrees and full load increases it to 62, a very tolerable temp for an 8800GTS.

    The card plays games just fine (even Crysis now, after I've reinstalled it).

    Can anyone please help?
    Meh....

    Seems to me Nvidia drivers still need improving for the 8800 cards.
    I have had an 8800 GTS with 760 megs for some months and am still playing with drivers.
    I am currently running their latest driver supplamented with nHancer.I have found that locking AA at 16 X gives me the best results.
