Default DX9c + Nvidia 61.77 = freezing games

Hi,

Madden 2004 and UT2004 now freeze about every 2-3mn during 10-20s before
resuming.
That makes playing UT2004 online impossible.

It never occurred prior to updating both DX and NV.

The easiest thing to do is try some older nvidia drivers and see what
happens.

Yep, I reverted back to 61.76 and it seems OK now.
So, after all, WHQL *does* mean something. ;-)

Next time, just update one thing at once so you'll know what did it.
