NVidiaContainer.exe Blocked - Not sure what this is

Go to solution Solved by Maurice Naggar,

I recently updated my Nvidia drivers and since then have gotten a message saying that Windows Defender has blocked NvidiaContainer.exe from creating %userprofile%/Videos/tdbswd56spcap. I'm pretty sure it's benign but want to be 100% sure. 

Attached are my FRST logs, my Malwarebytes log, and finally my Adwcleaner log (scan and clean as I had some Lenovo software on my computer).

The items flagged by Adwcleaner are in the Lenovo   "Preinstalled Software"

That is not malware   and IMHO, is not a threat.

The scan result from Malwarebytes for Windows has found no malware.    nada.


Looking at the section of FRST  that lists Windows events for the Windows Defender,  it has this

Windows Defender:
Date: 2020-09-24 08:26:10.4800000Z
C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\NvContainer\nvcontainer.exe has been blocked from modifying %userprofile%\Videos\Tdbswd56spcap by Controlled Folder Access.
Detection time: 2020-09-24T12:26:10.479Z
Path: %userprofile%\Videos\Tdbswd56spcap
Process Name: C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\NvContainer\nvcontainer.exe
Security intelligence Version: 1.323.1742.0
Engine Version: 1.1.17400.5
Product Version: 4.18.2008.9


Question:   Do you recall doing some video downloads around the time  12:26:10.479Z   ?


Another factor,  this Windows is set to use Controlled Folder Access.

If you would turn that off,  the block event from Windows Defender would not happen
