Nvidia Installer Failed

Greetings,

I recently purchased a new graphics card (GTX 660Ti)and a new hard drive. I am having a common problem with NVIDIA drivers which consists of the problem in which when you run the driver installer you receive a message the message "NVIDIA Installer Failed".

I have a totally empty hard drive with just Windows 7 Installed, so it makes a lot of "fixes" irrelevant because they include clearing driver folders.

Got any suggestions?
Thanks,

Best solution

1) Open a command prompt with administrative priviledges and run "sfc /scannow"
2) Re-download the driver from the official Nvidia site or install it from a disk if you have it and upgrade to the newest version.
3) Run Windows updates if you haven't already.
4) Contact Nvidia.

You have probably sorted it by now but just in case you haven't here is the solution, you don't need sfc /scannow or any registry cleaner, you need to delete the Nvidia Corporation file from your program files in win 32 x86 in 64 bit it will be in Program files and Program file x86, but before this you need to go to control panel, User account and family safety/ User accounts/ change user account control settings/ and move the slider down to never notify, a restart is necessary after this, if you do not do this first it will say you do not have permission, then you can delete the files and you will have no problem installing Nvidia after this, but remember to put your User account back to default afterwards.
