Angry Stupid nvidia drivers Shell32.dll, Control_RunDLL DESK.CPL,,3 ?!

Ok i used to still use the 29.45 version of the nvidia drivers (XP) for my Geforce 4 MX 420. Today i tried installing the latest drivers but when i restart and try to go to the geforce settings menu XP gives me an error 'An exception has ocurred (...) Shell32.dll, Control_RunDLL DESK.CPL,,3 ?!
Im on a dell pc 933Mhz with 256mb...
Anyone know what to do? I tried reinstalling the old drivers and the new but XP keeps giving me errors
Plz help! Tnx in advance...

try to uninstall your driver and restart xp. XP will alert you bout your graphics card as a new hardware...then run the driver program. if this does not work try the nvidia detonator XP drivers (preferably the v43.45).

I believe you could do either one of two things here too,,

1) use the rollback feature in XP to restore your system to a date prior to the change of drivers,,

2) delete the card, uninstall the drivers, reboot, let the machine find the card, and use the detonator 43.45 drivers as Devilish suggests,,

I have a GF4 Mx440 ,, and went through a similiar exercise,, the 43.45 drivers did the trick for me though,,
