Nvidia releases hotfix 431.68 driver to fix disappearing mouse cursor

Nvidia has put out a hotfix driver update for the 431.60 WHQL Game Ready drivers that were released last week. According to the release notes that accompany the hotfix, the reason for the updated driver is because the "Mouse cursor may render incorrectly after exiting a game." which is pretty important, and as far as we can see, the bug only appears to have affected Windows 10 devices.

The driver update is being offered in two flavors: the Windows 10 64-bit Standard Driver and the Windows 10 64-bit DCH variant, with Nvidia further pointing out that the the method of packaging the driver is the only difference.

In addition, the hotfix, which is based off last week's 431.60 drivers, is optimized for Wolfenstein: Youngblood, Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot, Madden NFL 20, as well as the first DLC for Metro Exodus. The Madden game also has an updated SLI profile. Those drivers also included support for three new G-SYNC Compatible monitors from HP and AOC, you can find more details here.

You can grab the hotfix at the links below, this doesn't appear to be coming through GeForce Experience yet, and the driver is also not listed when you search for it at Nvidia drivers page, so if you're affected, update.
