3RVX is a mac-style onscreen volume control for windows
3RVX can be installed in XP, Win7 etc. and MAC its a cool little volume control which can be used with Keyboard Hotkeys of your choice.. My Vol control went bust on my speakers so I use it instead. You have to have Windows Netframe work 2.0 and perhaps 3.5 installed. It places an Icon in the Taskbar if you want,. It is neither dangerous nor essential, it is an add on for people who want quick access to a Volume control. The icon can be placed anywhere, and pops up at last used location. It is a life saver if you need a Volume control, without using the Window one which covers your screen.

Best practices for resolving 3RVX issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with 3RVX. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the 3RVX.exe process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries. A unique security risk rating indicates the likelihood of the process being potential spyware, malware or a Trojan.
