I got these problems too. I followed a thread on here how to fix the windows search menu not working.https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/how-to-fix-the-windows-search.3571228/

For me what worked was to download the nvidia control panel from the microsoft store. Copy and paste
NVIDIA Control Panel. This should fix it :)

I always download it from the store , takes only a minute. If you get the driver from Nvidia you can choose express installation and just the driver. It will install the driver and control panel only.
I always installed nvidia drivers the same way as before and it included nvidia control panel...whats going on ?

Welcome to windows 10. I've scratched my head over this a few times.
With my system, 1st time I was able to go to the microsoft store and redownload.
The second time I was told you have already downloaded so it is unavailable.
The fix is to do nothing, it will most likely repair itself when it determines the control panel is missing.

Are you using the Automatic Driver Update or the Manual Driver Install from the NVidia site?
What hardware are you working with? PC? Laptop? Graphics Card?

I download it from their website,not using GeForce experience.I select custom installation,check PhysX graphic driver and clean installation.It always worked untill now.Using pc - Gtx 1050

Yes. What he said! Do nothing. I received the same message and before I could grab it from the Windows store, it had already downloaded and installed.
