Default CPU is not reliable enough to get *blah*

Greetings, all.

After years of being stable, I thought I'd throw a wrench into things and upgrade to v25.8. Unfortunately, the nVidia drivers decided to act strange and make my machine unstable. So, I reverted driver versions. Now, though, prime95 gets an error from the server when asking for new exponents--should be first time LL or DCs--but the server says I'm not reliable enough.

Is there a file I can twiddle with to make it forget that bad nVidia driver? Or, what do I have to do to make that all go away? I tried running a torture test overnight and that passed with no errors. So, before I go around editing files all willy-nilly, someone want to point me in the right direction?

Cheers.

Go to the web pages. Look at the list of computers. Click on the affected computer. Check the reset button I just added.
