My computer has been bogging down lately for no apparent reason, and it is all because of a process called nsvcip.exe. I do not know what this file is for, and i have no idea what a hijackThis log is, all I know is that it doesn't seem to use much of my CPU, it will just randomly spike my PF usage from around 350 MB to about 1.8 GB, which isn't exactly healthy. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

"nsvcip.exe is a process associated with ForceWare Network Access Manager from NVIDIA. Disabling or enabling it is down to user preference"

If I use msconfig and tell the program not to start up, though, Windows Security goes insane and tells me I have no firewall, but if I end it after it is running, my computer shuts itself down, saying that the Generic Host Process ended unexpectedly. Anything else I could try?

Don't use msconfig - use services.msc . :)

services.msc is what, exactly? I know more than the average human about computers, but not that much haha.

in the Run prompt, instead of using msconfig, type in services.msc and press enter. You have much greater control over services from this tool.

The Run box is a method by which simple commands can be given the system through the normal user interface without opening a Command Line Dialog. (Black box) It is available for display on the right-hand side of the Start Menu.

If yours is not showing, right click the Start button and select Properties. In the new dialog window, please choose Advanced. Scroll down the list until you see Run, and place a check mark in its box. Apply. OK. While there, mark one of the options to show Administrative Tools. It contains a shortcut to Services as well.

Then go to the Start Menu and click Run. In the small box that opens, type services.msc. This will give you the standard interface for managing Services.

Before making changes to other things there, have a good read:

Security Center is giving you alerts because the Windows Firewall was likely turned off by the NVIDA utility. That can be simply changed through the Control Panel. Open the Security Center applet and select the Firewall entry.

Alrighty, I took care of the security alerts and left the nVidia firewall activated, and so far, there has been no trouble with the process taking much more than its share of page file. If it occurs again, I'll be sure to let you know and ask for more help. Thanks for everything.
