This latest driver that rolled out last week, how stable is it? I'm hesitant to update.

OP also gave instructions for driver rollback if fear of stability is issue for you.

378.49 caused issues with vanilla as well as mods ;) The hotfix linked in the first post (378.57) has been included in the latest release (378.66) so you should be good to just update as normal going forward.

FYI, I have successfully downloaded and installed version 378.88 through the NVIDIA control panel itself without issues. I did indeed experience the buggy version, for me at least, the fix during that period was to remove the 3D drivers manually. If you are worried that updating might cause problems, it doesn't cause any for me, at least.
