    Nice one. You could have deleted unwanted folders like here http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/nvidia-geforce-drivers-v385-69-whql-findings-fixes.809155/
    Since you install GFE separately, deleting those unwanted files like @j95 showed us, would create only some entries related to NV Shield and GFE.
    Let me ask you this, is there any reason you are disabling in game overlay of GFE? If you aren't using GFE overlay for FPS, screen recording etc then GFE isn't needed. You can get Battery boost settings in nvidia inspector.
    One more question (because you're a nice guy) were you able to get vulkan running on Intel iGPU, because whenever I tried on Optimus based system the performance was pathetic and I had to use nvidia's vulkan driver installer to get a decent FPS.

    Nothing special, I have been just installing it on top of the current version for 10 years without any problem. I always install the driver and physix only, nothing else.

    I have always installed Nvidia’s Alpha drivers the way @j95 do it. Fast and clean:cool: And why bother with Msconfig for boot into safe mode? Too many steps for me.
