    Turn off your antivirus software and reinstall the Nvidia 182 video driver

    There should be no issues with that driver unless you got a bad download or it's conflicting with something else installed on your machine, such as your A/V like Tmagic suggested. If you still have issues grab the newer 182.50 drivers just released and try again.
