Question 169.25 drivers crashing vista 64

Ok so i decided to give it another shot, and everything was fine and dandy until i decided to update my video drivers. Now i get a bsod everytime i try to boot using the 169.25 drivers. WTF. I thought these things were supposed to be the working driver...

Also, anyone happen to know how to make vista stop disabling my third video card?

Go in via Safe Mode, or VGA Mode, and either roll back the driver within the Device Manager, or update it to a better one. I say roll back.
