During the last two times I updated the Nvidia drivers, all my OpenCL tasks give error before I even sign on to Windows 10 after updating. The last time I had eighty errors. There were about forty for the previous occasion. I closed the BOINC program before updating the drivers to no avail.

I'd uninstall the drivers and reinstall them, this time clean. That's an option in the installer.
The error you're throwing is that you're missing a DLL file, most probably in the OpenCL driver part, which can only be fixed by reinstalling the drivers and hope that fixes it, or going back to previous - and known to be working - drivers.

I use the clean install option which removes the old drivers before installing the new drivers. I suspect that OpenCL programs is running during the installation although I have turned off BOINC. The OpenCL application apparently tries each task and fails during the time the drivers are removed and there is no mouse and keyboard actions.

This time when I updated the Nvidia drivers I closed BOIC Manager, BOINC Client and BOINC System Tray for Windows. There were no computation error with any of the OpenCL tasks this time.
