Unknown program in process list
Just received my new Dell PC. Have removed the bundled software, but there is a program (CLCLEAN.0001) that reapperas in the Windows task manager on boot. I've run MSCONFIG to remove it, but it doesn't appear there. It doesn't appear in the list of Services, either. The program also appears to create a ne... 22 Jan 2006 00:08
Has anyone ever heard of this and know anything about it? They go to such extremes to indicate that their program *doesn't* install spyware that it makes me suspicious.
