    Boot in Safe Mode.
    Switch System restore OFF, see how here.
    Press Ctrl/Alt/Del simultaneously, select Taskmanager/Processes, select the process (if there), click "End Process" for:

    vidctrl.exe
    wintask.exe

    Next, try to UNinstall anything to do with (not delete yet!):
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\vidctrl\vidctrl.exe

    Next, run a HJT scan and place a tick-mark in the little square before (if still there):
    ...................................................................................................
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\vidctrl\vidctrl.exe

    ...................................................................................................
    Now click on the Fix Checked button in HJT.

    When done, from between the dotted lines, delete the highlighted bold files.
    When a \directory-name\ is bold, delete everything in it, including that directory itself.
    Delete all files and directories from: C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Local Settings\Temp
    Repeat this for ALL [usernames].
    Delete all files and directories from: C:\WINDOWS\Temp (except files dated from TODAY).
    Boot normal. When all OK, switch System Restore back on.

    Finally, you MUST install SP1 or SP2 (includes SP1).
    Don't come back here if you don't!
