Fresco logic USB 3.0 to VGA Screen
I have the Fresco logic USB 3.0 to VGA screen adaptor. If flvga_tray.exe is directly connected with the Fresco Logic USB/VGA adaptor as the previous comment suggests, I have scanned it for viruses using Bitdefender 2018 and now with Neuber Security Task Manager trial... neither scan shows the program as a virus.
Flvga_tray.exe is visible and located on my computer in the folder Windows\system32. The size is 383kB and it has no developer. AVG antivirus Free Edition didn't recognize it as a threat and HitmanPro checked it out as Suspected.
