Clicking the Nvidia icon in the taskbar gets the above exception.

Are you overclocking anything in the BIOS?
Nothing clocked. All voltages and timings are standard for the CPU. Temperatures for CPU, GPU and drives are within range.

If that is the process that is consistently crashing try configuring a "clean boot" and then install the drivers
Installed the new drivers while in clean boot and rebooted while still in clean boot. Then went to Nvidia control panel to get dual monitors working and clicked on enable all monitors...BSOD. Everything works so long as I don't try to enable both monitors.
I don't often update graphics drivers unless I am experiencing problems but the new driver addresses a security issue »Nvidia driver exploit allows super user escalation
. Nvidia is probably no longer interested in supporting dual monitors in XP. Works fine for W7X64 but not XP.
Unless someone has another idea I will revert back to the 270. drivers to get the dual monitors back.
Auggy, thanks for looking at this. Your expertise and willingness to help with problems is most appreciated.
