If so, I see you use ZoneAlarm for your anti-virus. ZA allows you to add files to it's "Exceptions" list, and that is supposed to tell ZA to ignore those files. I know this was discussed in that thread, and I can see where the problem is.
These are the steps we should be able to take to add this nvgames.dll to the exception list:
Open ZA's Control Panel, (right click the ZA icon in the Notification area, near the clock, select Show ZoneAlarm Security Suite Control Panel).
Navigate to Anti-virus/Anti-spyware.
Click on the Advanced Options.
In the new window, find in the left-hand column "Exceptions" and click.
In the right hand pane, click Add.
In the new window, make sure "On-Access scan" is selected. (If that options doesn't help, then later on try changing it to "Trusted Process").
Click Browse, and navigate to C:\Windows\System32. Highlight System32 and the folders and files will list in the right hand pane. Scroll down until you see nvgames.dll. Highlight, then click Open. Click OK/OK.
So, those are the steps. But, when you scroll down the System32 folder to find nvgames.dll, it isn't listed. I don't understand that, and I don't have a solution.
To make this clear, it isn't listed in that ZA navigator, even though you have set Explorer to show hidden folders and files, and show hidden protected system files.
Because of this I wonder if you should register with the ZoneLab forums at http://forums.zonealarm.com/index.php and seek clarification there.
By the way, glad to see you got the other problem sorted.
