Failed to start Nvidia Update - Try again later




yesterday EvilDeadGuy5381 asked if i knew anything about a program called
" GeForce Experience " ?

http://www.geforce.com/geforce-experience

that part was easy , ... no .

then he asked which Nvidia update was i currently using ?

so i opened the " Nvidia Control Panel " and clicked Updates .
and this is what i got >>>

i played with the control panel for a few minutes , but no luck ?
the updater would never start .

so i left myself a note by the key-board .
to check Nvidia updates , when i restarted today .
and again no luck ?

i went and started my 2nd PC .
and it also was unable to update Nvidia ?

so that interesting bit of information cleared up 2 questions ?
it couldn't be malware , for i hadn't started that 2nd PC in nearly a month .

and it couldn't be a dumb user error ?
for the same reason , ... the dumb user had only played with just one PC !

so my simple logic told me it had to be a Nvidia problem ?

after an hour or more of dull Google searches .
i finally found a thread in another forum that sounded like the right fix .

http://www.sevenforums.com/graphic-cards/240229-errors-nvidia-update-unable-log.html#post2073877

here are the details/steps that were suggested and did work for me .


The NVIDIA Update Service Daemon service failed to start due to the following error:
The service did not start due to a logon failure.

I had this issue but I fixed it as follows .

Try this:
- Open Computer Management.
- Go to Local Users and Groups -> Users
- Doubleclick UpdatusUser
- Uncheck User must change password at next logon
- Check User cannot change password
- Check Password never expires
- Click OK
- Start Services.msc
- Scroll down to "NVIDIA Update Service Daemon"
- Click Start.


the first thing to do is open " Computer Management " .
click/local users/users/UpdatusUsers .
and " un-check " , user must change password at next logon .

image

next , you must " check " the next 2 boxes as shown .
click " apply " first and then " ok " .

image

now type " Services.msc " in your search box .
and open " Services " , as shown in the image .

image

when " Services " opens , scroll down and find Nvidia update service .

image

right/click on the update service and select " properties " .

image

i have already applied this fix .
but you will need to click " start " and then " ok " .

image

as soon as i clicked " ok " , Nvidia told me , i had an update available .

image

now i went back to the Nvidia control panel .
and clicked updates .

image

and this time there was no " error " message !
and i clicked " check for updates " .

image

and as you can see , my Nvidia updater is working again !

image

i had to perform this fix on 2 PC's .
and it worked both times .

i don't know the cause ?
but since it even effected a PC that wasn't turned on at the time .

my guess is that there was a change to the update service on Nvidia's end ?

Yes, me too. And after installation, I go to Control Panel and uninstall Nvidia Update, Nvidia 3D and Physex software. I then remove the system tray icon and remove from desktop context menu.
I only need Graphics and Audio drivers. Lean and mean!

yes you make a good point there !
as long as Nvidia supports these cards .
all we need to do is to go to the Nvidia site .
the next time i do some major house-cleaning .
i will give your suggestion some thought .
