Default Dracula 3 - Flickering (Win 7 - Nvidia)

I purchased this game today on this site, and having an issue.

Running Windows 7 Pro (32 Bit) and Nvidia Graphic Card (driver 257.21)

I am experiencing "flickering" while watching the cut scenes and gameplay.

I did notice a thread on bigfishgames that mentioned the latest Nvidia drivers have made ALL Kheops games with this flickering problem.

Anyone have any suggestions on possibly getting this to work properly?

Thanks!

Which Nvidia card is it?
There's a big difference between a $40 Nvidia card and an $800 Nvidia card.

I have the Nvida GeForce GTS 250.

Maybe try older drivers.

Yes, that was the recommendation on the BigFish forums, however I play a few Adventure Games, and when I get stuck in one, I leave it alone for a while and go back to another.

One of the other games I was playing I needed to update to the latest Nvida drivers, so it works perfectly now, so having to constantly switch drivers is not an option for me currently.

I was just praying someone either figured out either a compatibility setting or some tweaks to the Nvida panel that might fix this problem.

There seem to be several threads about the problem at the Big Fish forums, dating back several months.
The thread -->here<-- says going back to the 186.20 drivers fixes the flickering screen problems.
Nvidia doesn't seem to be too eager to fix their drivers.
I think my next video card will be a Radeon.
