Note that non-system processes similar to cclaw.exe come from software the user installed on his PC. Since most programs store data in the system’s registry, it is possible that the registry endures fragmentation and compiles invalid entries. Such entries may affect the computer’s overall performance.

Users are advised to check their systems’ registries so that such issues are identified timely. On the other hand, if cclaw.exe stems from a malware program, the user should scan his entire system so that suspicious software is detected and removed timely.
