   This is a valid program, but it is up to you whether or not you want it to run on startup.

Whether or not you need to run this program on startup must be decided by you. If you feel that you want this program starting automatically so that you have it available as needed, then do not disable it. The following information is a brief description of what is known about this file. If you require further assistance for this file, feel free to ask about in the forums.
Name: Client Virtualization Handler

Description:

Part of the virtual MS Office software called Click to Run which may be preinstalled on certain computers.  This file is responsible for updating the software in the background.  If you wish to use the traditional office software, it is advised to remove the virtual version, then download the traditional installation package being sure to get the proper version and suite so your license key will work.  Please note that the numbering scheme for Click to Run is different than for the traditional software.  For example: Office 12 is Office 2007, and Office 11 is Office 2003.

It is assumed that users are familiar with the operating system they are using and comfortable with making the suggested changes. BleepingComputer.com will not be held responsible if changes you make cause a system failure.

This is NOT a list of tasks/processes taken from Task Manager or the Close Program window (CTRL+ALT+DEL) but a list of startup applications, although you will find some of them listed via this method. Pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL identifies programs that are currently running - not necessarily at startup. Therefore, before ending a task/process via CTRL+ALT+DEL just because it has an "X" recommendation, please check whether it's in MSCONFIG or the registry first. An example would be "svchost.exe" - which doesn't appear in either under normal conditions but does via CTRL+ALT+DEL. If in doubt, don't do anything.
