nVIDIA Prompt Keeps Appearing

I'm currently using version 4.3.7¹ on my all-Intel Windows 11 desktop PC (upgraded free a few months ago from Windows 10), and every time I perform certain operations, like resizing an image using hotkeys, an nVIDIA prompt keeps appearing "babbling" stuff at me about how to use its overlay...when I'm not eve calling the nVIDIA interface.

 

Specs:

MBD:        MSI Z490-A Pro (MS-7C75) w/Intel Z490 chipset
CPU:        i9-10900F 2.8 GHz 10-Core/20-Thread (water-cooled)
GPU:        nVIDIA (Gigabyte) GeForce GTX-1660 Super Windforce / 6 GB GDDR6
RAM:        16 GB Crucial Ballistix UDIMM Gaming Memory, DDR4/3600 1.3V
OSD:        Crucial NVMe M.2 2 TB SSD (2400 MB/s)
PSU:        750 W EVGA 80+ Gold
OS:        Windows 11 x64 Home 21H2
Network:    EP-9636GS EDUB LOVE Wi-Fi 6 / Bluetooth 5.1 3K Mbps

 

It's not a problem, actually, as I simply try to ignore the irritating message, but it's a bit annoying, but on the off chance that anyone knows what's causing it, maybe such a person could tell me how to eliminate the petty annoyance? I keep all of my drivers up-to-date, but I've noticed that there's a new Paint.NET version. I've downloaded it, but haven't yet installed it (I'm reluctant to, as I might not like some changes).

¹ (EDIT) I've just installed the newest version, and find that this problem happens with it, too.

In the Nvidia software look for the option to disable the overlay.

Thank you. Not quite what I was looking for, a way to eliminate the actual error, but this works, too, treating the symptom, not the disease. No more hiccoughing, sneezing, and farting at the same time- whee! I know the fault isn't with Paint.NET; the nature of the problem lies squarely in the driver-coders' bailiwick (somebody was a lazy coder; instead of writing all of his own code, some "rocket surgeon" at nVIDIA thought it a sound practice to use code blocks already present and ready to be called from system nooks and crannies! My professor back in the day regarded that practice as 1) lazy, and 2) plagiarism- write your own darned code!).
