I am running an NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS 512 on Vista Ultimate. I installed new drivers for the card about a week ago, and now this is showing up in my processes. Googling turned up nothing of any benefit in the way of information. Description is Stereo Vision Control Panel API Server. Doesn't seem to be causing any problems except after reboot, it is continually increasing its memory consumption, right now about 22 MB after a reboot yesterday. Rather annoying when these software people do this. Not in startups, so I appear to be stuck with it.

Has anyone else noticed it, knows what it does, or is there any possible way to get rid of it other than shutting it down in Task Manager?

Same problem here with an 8600 GTS. Installed 190.38 and noticed this new process. At the time of writing, it is taking 84 MB in working set memory. I definitely remember it starting out at a much smaller amount after booting.

Checked Nvidia Control Panel, the stereoscopic option is disabled, why is this process on in the first place is beyond me.

This is the "NVIDIA Stereoscopic 3D Driver Service". You can disable Stereoscopic 3D through the NVIDIA Control Panel, but I also recommend disabling the service through Services.msc just to be sure the process doesn't run anymore.
