Last week I inserted a graphics card into the AGP slot to support the resolution on my new monitor. The computer has onboard VIA/S3 graphics, and since then every time I start Windows I get the VTTimer asking to be run.  I've googled and get conflicting information as to whether I should disable this process or not.  Some sites advise running a registry scan and offer tools to do it, but I'm reluctant to do that unless I know it's safe.  any ides please.

Thanks
