I don't see anything more recent than 8/23/13 :/
Sounds like most of those came from Google toolbar and about the time I uninstalled it ?
None of the exact folder names though
6H5VZOXA.LCA
EB7LVO9P.CQM
Manifests shows,
clic...exe
goog...app

Mine just appear to be empty with the temp file names. Is there A way to see my past installed and uninstalled aplications? (Control panel wont show past uninstalled ones)

I was going by memory,
If the dates of install were recent you could just post you msconfig startup and services pages for review :/
Click start and type in the search box,
msconfig
Click or enter
Services check the box on the bottom left to Hide all Microsoft services,
Then Startup repeat the screen shots,
Cheers.

Thank you for the update,
Confirm which browsers you have install and how long this anti cheat has been installed ?
Also review your browser add-ons in them/ toolbars and extensions and accelerators,
I take it if you game you have Java installed as well in your browsers ?
If you have ie11 installed this could all be tied to this new feature of it,
Internet Explorer begins blocking out-of-date ActiveX controls
Cheers.

Punkbuster has been installed for more than a year. It is a legitimate program used by Ea and activision developed by evenbalance.

I use google chrome, I have been reinstalling chrome alot lately testing things and I heard chrome uses click once so possibly its related

I do not use games related with java and I do away with java completely for security reasons.


I have the latest ie installed but I use chrome 99% of the time.

Could be why the folders are empty you don't use ie for the games you play :/

I believe Callender might return with an update sooner or later ?
See how many files this clears,
I doubt it will changed the listing of the local folders but it's a good cleaner none the less for gamers,
Temp files delete,
Run this as administrator and Start the scanner,
Shut your machine down after it finishes,

Ive never used a browser to play any sort of java game or flash game. I play games downloaded from steam. I have moved the folder away and it hasnt come back so im going to wait and see if anything happens.
