Default Leaked Nvidia drivers 167.26

I have been using these drivers for the last 3 days, heard a lot of good stuff about them and they are working very well for me. Brought my 3dmark06 score up by 525 points. I haven't had no trouble with games at all so far, but my nvidia control panel icon on the bottom right corner of my screen has gone by by. Not really a problem, but kinda strange.
