The drivers for out-of-date Nvidia drivers also build up at 500+ mbytes per pop in c:\Windows\system32\DriverStore\FileRepository. Personally, I use "Rapr" (DriverStore Explorer) at https://github.com/lostindark/DriverStoreExplorer/releases to keep these drivers and other old drivers from eating up my SSD drives.

I don't know if it's related to exactly the same cause/root problem, but everytime I update the drivers for super cool overpriced Nvidia Graphics Card or when it decides to die for a few seconds, only skins/meters using Mouse Actions dissapear.
Same things happened when GDI+ was around as well (good old 3.3.3 days). So HW Acceleration is not the problem, and I probably reported on the wrong thread now that I think about it...
Though it's a bit strange that CPU drawn stuff dies because of GPU committing sewer sliding.
