Within the last two days, I began getting an error message stating that "Avicap32.exe" has encountered an error and needs to shutdown. This appears on system startup. I run Windows XP Home Ed. and have run registryfix and CCleaner, also checked msconfig and avicap32 is set to run on startup. The other registry lists through the above programs have not blocked the task either. I have looked for awhile and can barely find information on what this even does -- if it's not neccessary then I'd like to just take it off the startup list. This is my first post on this site so if I've left anything out I apologize. I appreciate any help ya'll can give me on this.
