This patch should now fix most issues for you!
The Witcher 2 – Patch 1.35
The following information is now deprecated. Get the patch instead.
Now OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED.
Do you have the 3D Vision driver installed? Check “Control Panel -> Program and Features” and look for “nVidia 3D.”
Apparently there’s a bug with The Witcher 2 that absolutely tanks performance if you have the 3D vision drivers installed – it doesn’t matter whether or not you’re using them. I had this problem and in parts I was getting as low as 12 FPS on my GTX 570. Uninstalling the 3D Vision drivers fixed everything and in the same sections I now get 60+ fps with everything maxed except Ubersampling.
I was very lucky to stumble upon this information. Spread the word.
Of course also make sure you have the latest drivers from nVidia, which are 275.27 as of writing this. I heard those can solve a lot of problems as well.

It has been brought to my attention that there is a torrent of Dropboxifier floating around the interwebs. This torrent contains a virus! Specifically, this virus.
Dropboxifier will never, ever, be distributed as a torrent by a third party. Dropboxifier is free software available at Codeplex. There is no reason to torrent it!
The torrent that I saw for Dropboxifier was an installer that put unwanted DLLs on your PC. The current version of Dropboxifier, 0.1.7, is a standalone executable and does not require any installer.
Never trust a torrent. Remain vigilant. Use protection.
A new relatively minor update for Dropboxifier has been released:
– Added link to Dropboxifier homepage
– Update validation on property change instead of on focus lost as to be less annoying
– If there’s an error in the XML, don’t overwrite it
As usual, grab it from Codeplex.
