The module NvQTwk.exe is the "QuickTweak" utility for nVidia graphics cards, the icon for which sits in your system tray if the utility is present and loads correctly.
What's probably happened is that utility is no linger installed, but it's still being called from the Registry to load with Windows.
This may have happened if you changed the graphics card recently and the old nVidia drivers left references behind in the Registry after uninstalling them.
If you did not change the graphics card and are still using an nVidia one, and you don't need the 'QuickTweak' utility anyway, you can use a startup manager to remove the entry which is causing the error. That module is not required for correct functioning of the graphics card, which is obvious since it's not loading anyway and your graphics card is working fine.
Download 'Ccleaner' from here: http://www.filehippo...wnload_ccleaner
Click Tools >> Startup
Highlight NvQTwk.exe and then click 'Delete'
PS - using 'msconfig' to disable it will have the same effect but that's not the correct method for permanently disabling a startup item, and it doesn't allow you to delete any of them when you are sure they
are orphaned entries. Ccleaner is easier use, is much more versatile than 'msconfig', and you can disable items (just like 'msconfig') if you want to check what effect that has before deciding to delete.
