What is CltMngSvc.exe?
cltmngsvc.exe is a part of the Search Conduit browser hijacker. It runs as a Windows service called 'CltMngSvc' with extensive privileges. This service enables auto-updates of Search Protect by Conduit. It runs automatically every time Windows starts. cltmngsvc.exe and related components are designed to protect search.conduit.com from being replaced with competing search engines and web browser add-ons. There are at least seven different variants of this file and most of them are flagged and dangerous or potentially dangerous by multiple antivirus products. Search Conduit displays misleading and sometimes even offending ads on your computer which is why most users decide to get rid of it. It's not essential for Windows and may cause problems. What is more, cltmngsvc.exe comes along with adware and potentially unwanted programs that may collect certain information about your browsing habits and searches. Needless to say, I recommend you to remove cltmngsvc.exe from your computer.
