This so-called dynamic link library (DLL) contains all the functions that have been transferred to a separate file. These transferred functions are available not only to this particular program, but can also be used by other applications. The file does not come from Microsoft and is not part of the operating system. The program executes in the background, and can only be terminated using Windows Task Manager. The service has no characteristics or description of its own. This is unusual. The file also can also affect other applications by changing their properties. Such manipulation can cause an application to do things other than what it is intended to do. Nview.dll is capable of log keyboard entries as well as supervise programs. For this reason, 65% of all experts consider this file to be a possible threat. The probability that it can cause harm is high.

If you see this file on your hard drive or in Windows Task Manager, please make sure that it is not a malicious variant.

With the above information or by using tools like Security Task Manager you can determine if, in your case, the file is an undesirable variant.
