Hope you don't mind me adding $.02 here. :rolleyes:

 

Just wanted to give you a bit more information about NVidia Driver Helper and Creative plugins (C:\WINDOWS\System32\nvsvc32.exe and C:\WINDOWS\system32\CTHELPER.EXE)

 

Taken from answersthatwork.com

 

NVIDIA Driver Helper Service which gets installed under Windows NT4/2000/XP/2003 by the NVIDIA drivers for some of their graphics cards (or graphics cards based on an NVIDIA chipset). We do not at this stage know what this process does except consume memory ! And we also have no idea as to what a “Driver Helper Service” is supposed to do !!

 

Recommendation :

This service is often responsible for various glitches, from significant shutdown delays to excessive memory usage. Disabling it, however, does not result in our experience in any ill-effect in regards to the proper operation of your NVIDIA or NVIDIA chipset graphics card, so we recommend that you definitely set the Startup Mode of this service to Disabled. You can do this by going to start>run, type services.msc, hit enter. Locate the service in the list and right click>properties. Stop the service, then disable, apply and OK out.

 

CTHELPER is a background task that is a plug-in manager for Creative drivers. It first appeared with Creative’s SoundBlaster Live and Audigy soundcards. The theory is that 3rd party manufacturers can use the CTHELPER plug-in interface to produce drivers, add-on features, and fixes that will integrate with a tighter fit with Creative’s sound drivers and utilities. One of the very first uses of this interface has been for InterVideo’s WinDVD in the shape of a fix called "WinDVDPatch" and, at the time of writing 12-Jan-2003, there have not been other uses for it yet.

 

Recommendation :

Given its purpose CTHELPER would normally be classified as a "leave alone" background task. Unfortunately, as with many other Creative background tasks in these pages, there are often problems with CTHELPER. The most common complaint is random excess CPU utilization, up to 100% ! We have also had complaints of PCs freezing when CTHELPER is around, although that is probably also 100% CPU utilization. Additionally, on PCs running Intel’s Pentium 4 Hyper-Threading CPUs, the sound stutters. In short : CTHELPER is far more trouble than it is a help.
