Hi,
I searched google to get some info on this videocntl.exe stuff and I haven't gotten any information on how to get rid of it. The closest that I've come to is how to turn it off in msconfig. I've read that it is a virus and that this is not good. I'd like to ensure that where ever it is I'm going to get it all out of my computer.
Please help. I know my way around a little bit so please be gentle with the technical jargon.

Thanks
Squiddly

Run these online virus scanners:

Also this online Trojan scanner:
TrojanScan

If that doesn't help:

I suggest you post a HijackThis log for examination.
A member of the HijackThis Team will walk you through, step by step, how to disinfect your computer.

Once you post your log, don't make any changes to your system, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it more difficult to properly clean your system.

Read Preparation Guide for use before posting a HijackThis Log.
Please read, and follow, all directions carefully!!!

Then, run a log, and post it in the HijackThis forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, as these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

NOTE:
Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.
