Expand the file in the NVIDIA directory NOT the System32 one. Once the file has expanded THEN move it to the System32 folder.

C:\NVIDIA\WinVista64\163.75\IS>EXPAND.EXE nvlddmkm.sy_ nvlddmkm.sys
Microsoft (R) File Expansion Utility Version 6.0.6000.16386

Expanding nvlddmkm.sy_ to nvlddmkm.sys.
nvlddmkm.sy_: 4634314 bytes expanded to 9673120 bytes, 108% increase.

Here is what you need to do. Navigate to the folder nVidia by typing cd c:\drv\vga\nVidia in command prompt while running as administrator.

Then you can type the command expand.exe nvlddmkm.sy_ nvlddmkm.sys. Once that is complete copy and paste from the nVidia folder to the drivers folder.

And it should work!
