The program uses massive amounts of memory. At one point my computer got so slow it would take 2 minutes to open a Word doc. I checked Task Manager and this program was using 1,300,000 K of memory. I re-booted and it dropped to about 100, 000 K and programs ran normally. The program's memory use grows during each day so I re-boot often.
This is part of NVIDIA geoforce experience driver install and is no threat unless it somehow gets infected and runs when you are not updating your drivers. if you find it running when not doing an update locate the file and rename it then delete it or you could right click on it and have your virus software scan it for a virus but if you don't find any virus I would rename it and delete it

It's for the NVIDIA GPU's I have one so it's harmless.

Spyware, geared by Nvidia to block other software from running; usually games.

I don't have Nvidia in my laptop, but Now and Then a virus visit my Laptop, here is the message of the antivirus: Object: C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\nvxasync\nvxasync.exe Infection: Win32:Malware-gen Action: Deleted Process: c:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Launcher.rb4 For whom it may concern.
I think that has 2 files. One is safe on one is not made by nvidia and be dangerous. It's hard to remove because you don't know what is safe and what is not!
I need it for my drivers and stuff to work also if you don't have Nvidia its probably a virus or another random program. Always check if you have Nvidia and in windows 8/8.1/10 you have icons on them- if they don't have an icon it is a virus
You have to go deeper than this, nvdsync.exe is spyware from Nvidia, that's all. It is not needed for the functioning of the graphics card. It behaves very suspiciously, it resists the users efforts to close it down while adding nothing to the users benefit. You cannot load the Nvidia control panel if the nvdsync.exe process has been renamed, deleted or stopped from running, yet if you stop the nvdsync.exe program after the Control Panel has loaded, the Control Panel functions perfectly normally proving that nvdsync.exe is not needed for the correct functioning of the graphics software. And just in case you had any doubt that the Control Panel doesn't need nvdsync.exe in order to work correctly, watch how nvdsync.exe starts up again (if you have stopped it manually) when you exit the Control Panel! What's more nvdsync.exe resists any attempt by the Firewall to stop it communicating over the Internet - it rewrote the entry in my firewall software, ZoneAlarm, cancelling the block I placed on it to receive and initiate internet connections. I managed to bring this outlaw software under control by changing the ownership of the nvdsync.exe file to "user" of the computer (a user with admin rights). Now the block in the Firewall software remains as I set it and nvdsync.exe cannot call home.
Here what you do you press start then type Resource monitor Then memory then find the nvxdsync then tap on it then end process Done sevice stopped

Best practices for resolving nvxdsync issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with nvxdsync. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using 1cleanmgr and 2sfc /scannow, 3uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using 4msconfig) and enabling Windows' 5Automatic 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 6resmon 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 7DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
