Just use the newest (it's 261.00 or 262.99 for the beta and 260.99 for the WHQL's) and follow the menu's options, I always choose "Custom" and then tick the box marked "Perform Clean Install".

I always uninstall my old driver first through add/remove programs, then using Driver Sweeper from Guru3D in safe mode I make sure all traces are gone, then I run the installer for the new driver in normal mode, reboot and done!

Never had any problems with traces of old drivers or driver conflicts.

I just install it over the previous version. Again, never seem to have a problem installing it this way.. All options are viable and fine

ok, friends, I did clean install, thanks. nvidia drivers are easy to install and my control centre is working fine. earlier my ATI control centre never opened after two days of install.

I am running window xp with 32 bit.

I have installed nvidia driver 260.99 without installing earlier version 260.89 for GTS 450 graphic card.
Is there any need to update driver previous version when installing latest version.
In my driver CD the version was of 259 series.

Please help.

Don't worry about the driver CD as that is always an old version, 260.99 is the latest WHQL'd version so stick with that.
