NvCpl RUNDLL32.EXE
NvMctray RUNDLL32.EXE

I'm pretty sure these are associated with the NVidia Control Panel.

rthdcpl.exe

I think this one belongs to the Realtek HD Audio Control Panel

What kind of scans are you after? Something to improve your boot time? Or other types of scans?

Here's one scan:

Right click on the C drive in Explorer and go Properties > Tools > Check Now (under Error Checking). Check both boxes then click "Start Now". A message will pop up saying that Error Checking will run after you restart the computer. Restart the computer and Error Checking will run automatically after the restart. After itís finished it will restart into Windows automatically.
