Happy New Year everyone! Still sorting out PC. I notice 'matcli' appearing on Taskbar when starting up. From browsing the net it seems to be a Dell programme? Should I remove it - I use MS Win ME. Any suggestions as to how? Thanks Itinerant

I think that this is a form of "spyware" used by Dell and Compaq.

I found this

matcli.exe is a motive Assistant Command line interface that gathers information about your system's identity like your name email address, city, state.. etc and gets written to a log file while silent.exe execute matcli.exe quietly in the background. Compaq Knowledge Center is required to run with the Help and Support program. If you remove the checkmark on Compaq Knowledge Center and then run help and Support it will add another Compaq Knowledge Center in the startup menu. If you remove the Compaq Knowledge Center in the add/remove program some help menus in help and support will not be available like Fix my Presario, Preference, and Contact Technical Support. It's best to leave it.

So I suggest that you leave well alone.

Via e-mail: Thanks but I am mystified since I do not use Dell or Compaq! Itinerant


May be HP? I would leave well alone if it is not too much of an annoyance.
