for some days now I get the messege, I shall update my Display Drivers
SETI@home: Notice from server
NVIDIA GPU: Auf die neuesten Treiber aktualisieren, um die GPU dieses Computers nutzen zu können.

The Problem is: I can't and I wont. The newest Display Driver isn't supporting my GTS 250 anymore, the Installation would fail or Windows would choose another Driver (Standard Microsoft?) for the card to work.
So how do I get rid of this messege?

This message can be a little misleading as it also happens when you have a driver that is too new for your GPU. It can also happen if Windows has tried to update your driver and failed....
