Several days after Microsoft started rolling its latest version update 22H2 for Windows 11, users on Reddit began reporting issues on systems with Nvidia GPUs.

Nvidia has already released a new version of the GeForce Experience software that should address this issue which confirms that the culprit indeed was in GeForce experience rather than a driver incompatibility. This fact also explains why some Nvidia-powered machines weren’t affected, while others had issues.
If you’re experiencing mentioned issues and have GeForce Experience installed, you might want to check that beta update for the latest Windows update.
BSODs that some users have reported are probably related to the update itself, rather than with Nvidia drivers or incompatibility.
