Bei mir belegt die datei über 1 Gb Arbeitspeicher!

NVIDIA-Grafikkarte: Die Datei ist (bei mir) 1,137 kB groß, befindet sich u.a. in Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\Display, Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\Installer2\Display.ControlPanel.0, NVIDIA\DisplayDriver\280.26\WinVista_Win7_64\International\DisplayControlPanel (mein Install.-Pfad). Kaspersky meldet keine Bedrohungen und mehr als 1 Million Installationen bei Kaspersky-Nutzern..
Braucht nach und nach allen Speicher auf. Bei 4 GB fängt Windows 7 an zu motzen. Nvidia-Support scheint nichts darüber zu wissen!?
Datei die meinen Taskmanager blockt und auf mein System zugreift. Virus ! Lässt sich nicht entfernen, wird nicht in den zu deinstalierenden Programmen aufgeführt. Größe: 1.424KB
Belegt bei mir 7mb arbeitsspeicher, lässt sich im task manager weder schließen (zugriff verweigert) noch den dateipfad anzeigen. macht mich skeptisch.
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.

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 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 doing a repair of your installation, or in the case of Windows 8, 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 nvxdsync.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.
