Task Manager and see 'clivfr.exe' taking up cpu initially

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?

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.
