My system has been slow on startup. I looked at processes in Task Manager and see 'clivfr.exe' taking up cpu initially.
Does this suggest a virus?

Apparently it's often relating to CyberLink products.  If you're worried then run a virus scan anyway.  Its always better to be safe then sorry.

I would disable the CyberLink program from startup if you're not using it.

click Start> Run> type in 'msconfig' and press ok>  Click on startup items.  Find the Cyberlink product and un-tick it>  Click ok and re-boot.

frankbustos--clivfr.exe is not  a virus, but is part of Dell Latitude ON Reader.

It is not at all necessary to have it start at Boot.  Run msconfig and Uncheck clivfr.exe from Startup tab.
