i cannot seem to use some of my programs or at least install any because a window will pop up saying it cannot finish installing or there is a problem with windows. when starting windows, it always comes up with a window stating windows system 32 nvcpl.dll is not available or cannot be found.
   
Make sure to turn this off if you move from an NVIDA card to a Radeon. This was causing tremendous cpu usage until I turned it off.
   
Nvidia ;)

The entry in msconfig is RUNDLL32.EXE "C:\Windows\system32\Nvcpl.dll,NvStartup" - this is how it is run at startup. Recently it was using 50% CPU on my PC. Removed it - no system tray function now.
