We at SpyShelter's cybersecurity labs here in Austin, Texas LOVE Nvidia hardware. Therefore we're used to seeing this well known NVIDIA Web Helper Service NVIDIAWebHelper.exe. If this is signed by your PC by Nvidia, then it's definitely a safe process to see in your Windows Task Manager.
The process associated with the NVIDIA GeForce Experience software. It's designed to improve the user experience by providing various features and functionalities, such as automatic driver updates, game optimization, and live streaming capabilities. The process runs in the background to ensure that the GeForce Experience software operates smoothly and efficiently, and it also provides additional support for NVIDIA graphics cards and related services.
