I understand matcli stands for
'Motive Chorus Command Line Interface".

It gathers information about your system's identity like your name, e-mail address, city, state, etc. and gets written to a log file. It is a Motive Powered Service from HP. To remove matcli, uninstall 'hp instant support'. The standard way to remove this program is by going to
Start/Settings/Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs - Select HP Instant Support - Change or Remove Programs.

Did you resolve the problem ?

I believe matcli is used by several firms, not just dell, compaq, hp etc. From my research it also appears to be linked to help files with broadband, but I have not found out if it's safe to remove or not. Perhaps you just lose the help files but it's purely a guess.
