Something with the 1703 update and nVidia drivers are causing the ICC profile and custom nvidia colours to revert back to default when I restart.

Also, any game (not application though) with an nvidia profile which is detected through the manage 3d settings tab will revert the icc profile and/or custom nvidia colour settings to default while the games without a profile retain ICC/nvidia custom colour settings. This happens on both 378.92 and 381.65.

I have personally and quantitatively confirmed this through reading a lot of reports across various forums of people having the same problems.

I rely on these profiles/settings because I have a laptop and can't change them externally like a normal monitor could.

I wish I didn't delete my Windows.old folder as I would definitely revert until this has been sorted.

This update has caused me so many problems and I see little benefit and added annoyances like control panel being removed from the right-click and a nagging "actions needed" since I shut off Windows Firewall and use a third party.

I have had nothing but issues with my audio and video drivers. My audio keeps resetting to the monitor instead of the sound card when I reboot and I can't change my multiple display settings and I have two monitors and a TV hooked up and I switch back and forth. The computer just crashes when I try and switch from the TV to the second monitor now.

I'm debating clean installing regular Windows 10 back on the laptop and desktop at this point which really sucks. Anyone else have any ideas or suggestions before I go this route?
