Yes I do, its quite an old one (I have had the computer for about 7 years)
Its a GeForce 6600, not sure whats up with it, it is working fine, I had no idea it was the graphics card. So what do you think is wrong with it?
Thanks for the fast reply!

daemonu.exe is one of the components that manages NVIDIA updates. Something is wrong with it that it cannot do what it is supposed to do. I would try to perform a clean reinstall of the graphics card driver (and any NVIDIA-related software, if there is any) to see if the problem goes away.

You can download GeForce drivers from NVIDIA. If the auto-detect does not work, GeForce 6600 uses the "GeForce 6 Series" driver.

Please try to uninstall any NVIDIA software before updating your driver. We want to make sure the installation is as clean as possible.
