RivaTuner is a tweaking utility for NVIDIA (and to a lesser extent AMD/ATI) chipset based graphics cards. This startup entry is for XP and can appear twice - with registry key names of "RivaTuner" and "RivaTunerStartupDaemon" respectively. The former minimizes it to the System Tray and is primarily required only if you want to use the "Launcher" or monitoring options. The latter applies overclocking changes to clocks and memory (for example) at startup and then exits. See the FAQ for more information

Startup information:

Registry (Start → Run → regedit)
