Does anyone actually know what the Nvidia Driver Helper service doest under WinXP Pro?

Disabling this leads to faster shutdowns and/or restarts, and I have seen people say it is ok to turn in off, because it does nothing, however this can't be enitrely true. If they bother to have such a service run, it must do something

What?

TIA,

DJB

I always disable it and have never had a problem. YMMV.

same here, first thing after installing any nvidia driver is to disable the nvidia helper service... don't know what the purpose is though...
