AnnomousIf It Is NvCpl.EXE it is most likley to be a virus or Trojan.

malinok, but what do i do with the error message "error loading C:Windows/system32/NvCpl.dll" I ran a virus scan by kaspersky and didnt find nothing... Plz help
RicThe control panel itself is not needed but it is better not to delete this file because it may be used by Nvidia drivers
namei have this file in my user directory on vista ultimate c:myname{somehugehash} vcpl.dll AVG says its legit :shrug:
cav"If It Is NvCpl.EXE it is most likley to be a virus or Trojan" this IS correct the nvidia control panel is "NvCpl.dll" so check your facts before you start calling people names.
nameThe main reason you get that error message is because Windows indexed it then later on you pc preformed a scan disk check and deleted it reason for the delete is because you or something edit or made a new bootcfg file and windows ran a check and deleted it
anonI'm pretty sure this exe and related .dlls are what's causing my PC to BSOD every time I shutdown, gaaah.
