Funnily enough I've just installed the latest Nvidia drivers, 417.22, and ever since have been getting sporadic display flickering. I wonder if this is a bad update?

Won't hurt. Do the same process of using DDU to remove the current driver version and then install one of the older versions from this list (search for your card and OS) https://www.nvidia.com/download/find.aspx

No. It's optional.

wait does it automatically install geforce experience?

 

When you install the Nvidia drivers there's an option to install the drivers by themselves, or the drivers and GeForce experience. By default the box for drivers with GeForce experience is already selected so if you don't want to install it you need to check the other box that says drivers only.

If you check the box to install both, then it will automatically install the GeForce experience software when it installs the drivers.
