So after I restarted my PC after updating Geforce Experience I looked in the event Viewer and I got an error related to it.

Event ID 1

Source NvStreamSvc

Is anyone else getting this? Will this negatively affect my PC?

It's trying to connect to a device that hasn't even been released - I'd ignore it.
It might be something to do with the 320.41 beta drivers being released today also.

Anyone else having the same issue?

EDIT: I disabled the streaming tab also because I don't have a Nvidia Shield but I'm still getting the two errors after I rebooted.

Yup, I noticed the event viewer crap and it annoys me to no end!!! Here's what did it for me (the fix that is)...

I went into programs & features and removed the dumb "Virtual HD Audio Driver" for Nvidia and pooof, like magic, the errors went away... I have enough performance issues alone with the Nvidia HD audio driver, now this crap!!

Hi Guys,
Just stop the NvStreamSvc service. Open a command prompt (as Admin) and type:
sc stop "NvStreamSvc"
sc config "NvStreamSvc" start= disabled

I don't have shield and never will. I've been fighting this problem (just got a black screen for 2 sec.) for a week. When I try the many solutions on the web, none work. In cmd I get a msg saying "the (5 sec. freeze) specified service does not exist as an installed service." In task mgr It won't let me stop process. I like nvidia v cards but I'm thinking AMD just because of this problem.

Upgrading to 1.6.1 for GeForce Experience seemed to fix it.
