Part of a virus that listens for game CD keys and sends them to the virus author. Latest Norton AV 9.0 definitions (9/8/2004) did not pick up this file, but it did pick up another portion of the virus. I know of 2 other offending files in your SYSTEM32 directory: "o" and "ms.exe" - o is a list of ftp commands, and ms.exe is another part of the virus.

Part of a virus, videosd32.exe in conjunction with elite.exe take up 50% CPU power each, grinding your computer to a halt. These two files must be removed from startup in your registry, or msconfig. I have also found traces of this virus (probably used to execute and spread in C:\ ) deds.rar and mediaded.rar You should delete those, as they seem to run periodically also. Aliases of this virus: Micr0s0ft.exe, elite.exe. It's tricky, even a C:\ format and this sucker re-launched itself from our D:\.

Summary: Average user rating of videosd32.exe: based on 3 votes with 3 user comments. One user suspects danger. 2 users think videosd32.exe is dangerous and recommend removing it.

Best practices for resolving videosd32 issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with videosd32. 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.
