    I had this too. Easy. Go to your desktop, right click, nvidia control panel. On the left there should be something that says stereoscopic 3D. Click it and uncheck the "Enable stereoscopic 3D".
  2. Same here. Above answer correct.

    Windows 8.1:
    a) Windows uninstalled my antivirus solution so I had to reinstall that. Windows Defender also wouldn't run in AUTO mode giving me an error. I turned it OFF in the settings.

    b) You can REMOVE the "windows.old" data from the update using the normal C-drive CLEANUP utility.

    I didn't experience that issue, but I use Malwarebytes and Kaspersky.

    aww man thanks so much, this was starting to stress me out and it was giving me a hard time. I wiped out my ssd and re-installed windows 8 and everything. A lot of stuff got erased but im just glad my PC is back to normal. thanks a lot it was a easy fix however i never used the nvidia control panel before so it would have probably taken me awhile to do this on my own.
  5. Thanks!
