Hi everyone.
I have just installed Zone Alarm and now I am getting a warning that " CLI application(command line interface) is trying to access the internet".
I have denied access because I don't know what it is and the PC seems to be working OK!
Does anyone know what CLI.exe is?
Thanks

A CLI (command line interface) is a user interface to a computer's operating system or an application in which the user responds to a visual prompt by typing in a command on a specified line, receives a response back from the system, and then enters another command, and so forth. The MS-DOS Prompt application in a Windows operating system is an example of the provision of a command line interface. Today, most users prefer the graphical user interface (GUI) offered by Windows, Mac OS, BeOS, and others. Typically, most of today's Unix-based systems offer both a command line interface and a graphical user interface.

just found this thread as I have a similar problem. My son has just installed the catalyst control centre for ATI and I am now getting a warning about cli.exe coming up when I start the PC. I can click on it to make it go away and my son tells me that his game runs OK (that was the reason he installed the catalyst control centre) but I would like it to stop popping up on start up.
Any help appreciated

start>run>msconfig> go to start up and remove tick from cli.exe
