Apparently over the weekend there was a new GPU driver released by nVidia that has caused some problems with Windows 10.
http://www.pcworld.com/article/3134478/computers/nvidia-rushes-hotfix-after-bad-geforce-driver-broke-windows-10s-start-menu-apps.html

GeForce 375.57
They've released a newer driver that is suppose to remedy the issues GeForce 375.63

IF anyone is experiencing the issues with the Start Menu, Tiles, some Apps, etc., perhaps downloading and installing the newer driver will help.

Thanks for the heads up @Trouble. I spotted that the NVIDIA app was prompting to download an update over the weekend, but I hadn't got round to installing it yet - phew! I've downloaded .63 now :).

Blissfully still back on 368.xx
Not a fan of that GeForce Experience program.
Maybe I'll catch up today after DDU with a clean custom install of 375.63

Trouble - After reading your post regarding NVIDIA driver update, I accessed my NVIDIA Control panel and checked for updates. Instead of updating, a drop down provided this information (Runtime Error
Program: C\Windows\System32\Rundll32.exe
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Contact the application’s support team for more information.)
My Version is GeForce 6150 LE Version 309.08

I've never noticed an problems along the way, but I'm curious if this might present a issue for me.

BTW, I did download the driver per the link you provided above. I have not yet installed it. Thanks.

LE Version 309.08
That's the latest driver that nVidia has for that card
http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/82758/en-us
Which evidently stopped at Windows 8
Microsoft doesn't seem to have anything newer for that card either http://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=GeForce+6150+LE

The link I provided above is for newer cards and does not apply to yours.
As to whether or not it
might present a issue for me
I couldn't say for certain.
Time will tell with the new Windows 10 Creator's Update coming April 11th.
