TLDR: New driver breaks your system, don't update yet.
"The 364.47 driver was released yesterday, and is meant to include optimisations for The Division, Hitman, Need for Speed, Ashes of the Singularity and Rise of the Tomb Raider. The drivers can also severely damage your computer.
Blue screens, failing to boot up Windows, restart loops, losing sound, graphical artifacting and even burned out cards are all problems which are being reported by users on various sites. It doesn’t seem to be specific to one brand or generation of card, either.
Nvidia has released a statement saying that the problems lie in the express installation settings, and that it is “actively investigating the issue”.
I am personally running the driver with my GTX 980 on a non-upgraded installation of Windows 10 64-bit, installed using express installation, and have found my entire PC now locks up after a few minutes of The Division. Enough people having more serious issues for me to suggest you wait until Nvidia releases a fixed version, or roll back your drivers if you’ve been unlucky enough to already install it."

Thanks, I'll sit this one out. :)
I don't want my GTX 260 to be offed by shoddy drivers.

I guess we got lucky. We tried to install that update and the update download kept failing due to NVidia's shoddy download system. So I gave up and haven't gotten back to it yet. Guess I will hold off, then.
