this error seems to be causing a slow start up for me. I 'm wondering if it would be safe to just delete the driver. I cant find it in the hardware manager (hidden files either)
Windows\SysWow64\Drivers\nvport.sys has been blocked from loading due to incompatibility with this system please contact your software vendor for a compatible version of the driver. ( no response from Nvidia)

I've looked in quite a few places and can't find a definitive answer.
Please Help
Sincerely
Erik

It seems:
(a) SYSWOW64 is used to support 32bit applications in the 64bit version of the OS and
(:huh: nvport.sys is related to NVIDIA Pure Video
