NCLAUNCH.Exe forms the crux of the SWF Studio, which is an enhanced version of Flash. This is installed as part of the SWF Studio suite itself but is also found bundled with any self-extracting Flash based screensaver created using SWF Studio. Removal of the particular screen-saver does not automatically remove this process, even if SWF studio is not installed.http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/nclaunch.exe.html

It is run automatically at the system startup if is contained this key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. If my operation system is too loaded I kill this process, ant this really helps. But is not only this process   Caliogstro

This is from macromedia flah  
Launcher is used by screensavers created using SWF Studio (www.northcode.com) to launch URLs and other files from screensavers   jb
A file that will automatically run if you install an .swf screensaver. Open Start, go to Run, and type in msconfig. Then go to the Startup Tab and uncheck it. Best thing to do.   TerrorByte

Keylogger, Printscreen taker, sends the information. Opens up cmd - ipconfig repetedly. Can be found in c,d:\windows\nclaunch.exe   Pelle Svensson
I got it from a "maxim-girls" screensaver. Uninstalled screensaver because it wasn't very good. nclaunch.exe stayed, now my pc freezes up. I have a p4 2.4g w/1gig of RAM/cable   carlos
INstalled to my PC when downloading cat licking screensaver from 'theslurps.com', so can vouch for all the above 'Flash' comments.   Illusioni
NCLAUNCH.EXe is a trojan! Is a fake file writed in uppercase (but last letter...)   Falken

This process always runs on my machine. I have a nice 3D fall/autumn screensaver. Doesnt seem to harm PC. I have scanned numerous times using Norton AntiVirus 2008, Uniblue SpyEraser, SUPERAntiSpyware, and Malwarebytes' AntiMalware using latest definitions, none of them see this process as a threat. ZoneAlarm doesn't catch this process ever sending information out. It only takes up 3.4M of ram, I have 2GBs and typically I don't even use 25% of that. If I need the ram, I'll kill it, otherwise, it doesn't bother me.   phat_tony04
I created it. It consumes NO resources while running and never sends anything information out from your machine. It's not a trojan/spyware/keylogger (as some people seem to think) and it doesn't do anything malicious. It is installed by screensavers created with older versions of SWF Studio (www.northcode.com) to allow the screensaver to launch applications and HTML pages when the screensaver ends. If you want more information about what it does or how to remove it, just contact Northcode support!  See also: Link   Tim Goss
