Requires registration: Since October 2016, you have to create an Nvidia account with a username and password and log in when you open GeForce Experience. You can’t get driver updates, one-click performance optimization, or the unified game library until you do. You can still access the Nvidia control panel through the right-click menu on your desktop, but you’ll have to manually check for driver updates by comparing your version to the most recent one on the GeForce website (or here on Download.com by searching for “Nvidia graphics driver“), which is disruptive even for technical users. If you don’t want Nvidia to collect your user data (such as your email address, which games you’ve installed, and which internal components are in your PC), then you’ll have to forgo GeForce Experience. Some of GeForce Experience’s data collection is used to enable its one-click optimization settings; after all, it can’t optimize for your components if it doesn’t know what they are. Still, we’d prefer to be able to disable data collection.
Drivers sometimes don’t update cleanly: By the law of averages, the more you update your drivers, the more likely it is that you’ll run into a conflict. And the Nvidia driver package contains multiple selectable components, greatly increasing the number of potential outcomes that you might have to troubleshoot. Solving software conflicts frequently requires the use of an unofficial tool like Display Driver Uninstaller to reset your video card driver environment, which can be a hassle.
