I have read very conflicting stuff about disabling NvCpll.dll from startup.

I understand it's from my Nvidia graphics, however, I would like to disable
it from startup.

Anyone know if this is possible? If so, if it is, how can I go about doing
it?

I have tried through Spybot, but it keeps coming back to startup.

Yes it can be disabled. Start | Run | Msconfig | Enter. On the startup
tab uncheck it.

Hi

You can disable it via msconfig>startup if you want to.

I have tried that route and it does not work. It keeps coming back on
startup.

This is the control panel extension that shows up when you go to the video properties (Right click
desktop select properties, Settings tab, advanced settings). There is no real reason to disable, I
would leave alone.
