What you should know about nvStInit.dll NVIDIA Stereo Initialization dll
nvStInit.dll is not part of Windows, but it is important nonetheless. NvStInit.dll is found in a subdirectory of "C:\Program Files".
Frequently occurring are file sizes such as 17,288 bytes (77% of all these files) or, as the case may be, 20,328 bytes.
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 service has no characteristics or description of its own. This is unusual. This process does not appear as a visible window, but only in Task Manager. This 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. The file was developed by a so-called third party provider - and not by Microsoft. The original file has a digital certificate (see its file properties). Windows starts the process each time that the computer boots up (Registry: AppInit_DLLs). NvStInit.dll is capable of track other applications. nvStInit.dll appears to be a file that was compressed by an EXE-Packer. This technique is often used by trojans to keep the file size small and also hamper debugging efforts. However, this in itself is not sufficient reason to presume malicious intent, since even well-intentioned, professional software producers take advantage of compressed files. For this reason, 69% 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. It's a fact that many trojans try to cloak their true identity by calling themselves nvStInit.dll. 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.
What do other computer users say about nvStInit?
