An emerging problem this morning with reports on rendering issues after updating NVIDIA graphics driver to 378.49
Residents are reporting a render issue where the world is painted in a blue hue. There are various work arounds for this issue (including not installing the update or rolling it back), turning glow off and enabling ALM etc.
For details see https://jira.phoenixviewer.com/browse/FIRE-20774

The bug first appeared after the 31st August update for Windows 10 Anniversary edition. However Microsoft said the problem was due to code inside the NVIDIA and AMD drivers.
Early reports say that the frame rate issue may have been resolved, at least for NVIDIA graphics users thanks to a driver update released today from NVIDIA, version 373.06
Of course it is too early to say for sure, so please keep and eye on the Linden Lab Jira BUG-37795
Overnight many more people have indicated that this issue has finally been resolved and AMD have now also released a new driver to fix this problem. AMD 16.10.1. So if you have been suffering the frame rate issue, updating your graphics drivers to the latest release would seem to be the solution.

Have you tried this setting in your NVIDIA control panel? It won't work for everyone, but might work for you.
Under program settings, create a profile for your SL viewer software, and try enabling "Vertical Sync".
You need to restart your viewer after this change. On our computers, frame rate increased from an average of 28-30 to 40-50. Every little helps!
It does not fix the issues with the Windows 10 KB3176938 problem, but was a tweak we found along the way whilst researching the causes.
