After installing the above driver I am getting computation errors for M@H WUs and Collatz Conjecture WUs on my nvidia GTI 560 Ti graphics card. In both cases the error appears after 1-2 seconds of computing. M@H is using opengl_nvidia and Collatz is Cuda23. I also run Einstein (Cuda32), GPUGrid (Cuda31) and Seti (Fermi) without any problems. Is the problem the nvidia driver or the W@H and Collatz applications?

My current "solution" is to revert to the 285.62 driver, where all 5 applications compute without errors.

Windows 7 Pro, Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 processor, 4GB memory

If the earlier driver works for you then stick with it, there is no reason to upgrade just because there is a new diver. MOST updates are for gamers not crunchers. I also have a 560 Ti and am using 275.33 and it is cranking out the credits over at http://boinc.freerainbowtables.com/distrrtgen/index.php
