    What is NvCpl.exe

    I'm running Windows Xp as my operating system. The problem is that whenever i turn on my system after 5 to 10 minutes a pop-up displays on my desktop screen stating that NvCpl.exe error has been occurred due to which you need to reboot your pc. Can any body tell me that what is NvCpl.exe? Does any body knows about it? Kindly help me out to get rid of the above issue.
