Correct Windows 7 Hibernation Resume Nvidia Graphics Card Problem

Windows 7 with a 512MB Nvidia Graphics Card works great for most games. Sadly, there was a major issue when I tried to resume Windows 7 after Hibernation or Sleep. Apparently due to an issue between the Nvidia Graphics card driver and Windows 7, probably something with Windows Aero, the computer stopped working completely after resuming from the Hibernate mode. I had this problem for several months before I could finally get hold of the problem and a solution to it.

Microsoft has provided a Windows 7 and Windows Server Hotfix update to resolve this issue with the Nvidia Graphics Card driver. Below I shall post the entire Email that was sent to me after I requested the Hotfix update:
