    I have a blank icon in my control panel running windows 8.1 on a AMD 64 CPU. I needed this software to play a game and have since removed that game and cn still not uninstall this and I know it should not be there. I have no games installed on my computer whatsoever. I have googled this topic and have tried every option possible but no way to get rid of it. There is no processor installed but it still remains there. Have looked in the registry for it and cannot find it anywhere. I'd like to get rid of that icon. Have also reinstalled it and then uninstalled it to see if that would work but no it won't and it's still stuck there. Can someone please help me with this.?:(

    Download and save the TSG System Information Utility (SysInfo.exe) to the desktop.

    After it's been downloaded and saved, double-click it to run it.

    Information about your computer will appear.

    Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the ENTIRE text here.

    Your computer has AMD graphics, so I don't understand why you would be using NVIDIA Physx software in it. :confused:

    I've never used Windows 8.1, so I'm not familiar with its features nor how to navigate through it.

    There is no Policies/Explorer in this directory.

    The *Cpl was in syswow64. I just happened to stumble on it and open it with control panel just to triple check and this was it. Deleted it and no more blank icon in control panel. But I also seen application files named Agea dated 2008 in syswow64 folder but I hadn't even bought this computer then and I wonder if those should be deleted too. It was 2 files in one folder named Agea. This is AMD so should they be there. I left them alone because I'm unsure of that. Any thoughts anyone.
