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.

Re: What is NvCpl.exe

If a process named nvcpl.exe is running on your computer, you may have been infected with a strain of the Yanz.B worm. It can result, for example, into enabling remote access to computer, stealing data like bank account access, passwords stored in computer etc. Trojan can be received by email as an attachment (screensaver, multimedia postcard) or can be downloaded from internet (keygen, software for free, etc.).
