Purpose: GDCW.EXE - According to CA:
"Security software that uses deceptive means for installation and purpose. Once installed, the rogue software usually uses scare tactics to inform the user that spyware or malware is installed on their system. The rogue security software then claims to offer remediation in exchange of payment. These applications can come bundled with other malware that serve other purposes. This software usually comes in the form of Anti-spyware, or Anti-virus applications."
gdcw.exe is spyware/adware. PC Pitstop recommends strongly that all adware and spyware be immediately removed. This application category consumes considerable system resources and the performance gain is quite noticeable. Furthermore, adware/spyware pose a security risk to your computer as it sends your personal information back to the mothership.
