What is CCC.exe? Why is running?

Are you having issues with CCC.exe and wonder what it is?  Why is it running and consuming your system resources?  We’re going to tell you why!

What is CCC.exe?

CCC.exe is the ATI Catalyst Control Center.  Catalyst Control Center is part of your video card drivers and packaged software for an ATI family of video cards.  It adds features that allow you to quickly change your display settings, monitor layout, etc.  It’s not spyware or malware, unless you notice it is running outside of the C:\Program Files\ATI Technology folder, in which case you should investigate further.
