What is cltmng.exe and how to remove it?

cltmng.exe - Search Protect by Conduit

What is cltmng.exe?

cltmng.exe is a part of the Conduit browser hijacker which specifically targets Chrome and Firefox. It installs an extension that forces users to use Conduit Search (search.conduit.com). Needles to say, it's not essential for Windows and may cause problems. This application will prevent other competing web browser plugins from changing the home page and search settings that are created by Conduit software. It may block any attempt to restore your default search engine and home page. It may slow down your computer, especially when online. Besides, Conduit software displays ads on infected computers and redirects users to search.conduit.com when searching directly through the address bar. I recommend you to remove cltmng.exe from your computer.
