Default Temps wonky for GPU

I noticed that after updating EVGA Precision and to the latest non-beta nVidia drivers, that all of my temp monitor programs either say the GPU temp (for GTX 260) is 0 (FanSpeed), or some ridiculously high 6 digit number (real temp). I was wondering if its the drivers doing this as i've already performed a couple of system restarts in attempt to clear the problem if it was stuck in memory. Now its not a 'massive' concern as i know it operates between 50-60C on full load folding, i'd just like to get this temp monitoring ability back.

Driver problem...well known "issue" with some folks running 190.xx Drivers...try 18x.xx Driver and all should be fine.
