NVIDIA Driver Helper Service which gets installed as a service under Windows Vista by the NVIDIA drivers for their graphics cards (or graphics cards based on an NVIDIA chipset). This task is used only when you use specific Advanced features of your NVidia graphics card, in particular overclocking, overriding of the refresh rate for OpenGL games, and dual monitor display. It is also needed if you have configured your PC or laptop to go into Sleep Mode or Hibernation.
This service has a long history under Windows 2000/XP for being responsible for various glitches, from significant boot-up and shutdown delays to excessive memory usage.
If you use any of the Advanced Graphics features mentioned above, or if you Hibernation or Sleep Mode, then you have no choice but to keep this service enabled.
For all other users, however, we recommend that you disable this service
