I then checked the startup Items. BOY, were there ALOT of things in there! When I first removed alot of the starup items, the start up time went from about 10 Minutes!...to about 2. But that only happened once. Now, with only 8 things in the start up, it takes about 6-7 minutes. So I've checked those last 8 items, of which I eliminated all but 3. One of those I need help on, is: NvCpl. I checked this site for that, and it came up with 20 items. All but 4 of those are Viruses/Malware/Trohans! But none of them match the file on my PC exactly. The file in my PC:
Command: RUNDLL32.EXE C:\WINDOWS\system32\NvCpl.dll,NvStartup
This is the link where it shows the potential files:
Is this something bad? If so, how to remove?
If it is a good file, is it ok to remove from Start up?
I'm running Windows XP, Media Center Edition, Version 2002, Service Pack 3
CPU is 2.8 GHz, 2.0 GB of RAM
