Basically what happens is the setup works perfectly fine, it installs the refresh rates, and overrides the EDID. Then I restart my computer as it tells me. When I run strobelight.exe it tells me 'no strobed refresh rates found.' which isn't right.

So I did some debugging, downloaded CRU and looked at my monitor's EDID to find that the strobelight override is still there. Wtf?

Eventually I figured out that if I run restart64.exe (which basically restarts the entire graphics driver) it will restart my displays, and will apply the EDID override, therefore allowing strobelight to work again.

But the problem is I have to run restart64.exe EVERY TIME I startup my computer to get the strobelight to work. This is a minor annoyance to me, but I wanted to let everyone know that this workaround does exist.
Are the refresh rates not available at all in Windows until after you run restart.exe or is it only Strobelight not finding the refresh rates? I can't do anything if EDID overrides aren't loading. That would be a driver issue, but I haven't heard of this happening with NVIDIA. Try reinstalling the driver after using DDU to wipe everything:
