The vghhost.exe shows up in my startup items, but I cannot seem to find the file anywhere on my computer. But when I delete the registry entry/ies, they simply show up again after a reboot or two.

Can someone help me figure out what it is and if it in fact is a trojan/virus or the like. My Symantec Endpoint Protection does not show anything suspicious when scanning.

Here's the content of my DDS.txt:
