A Microsoft process, this application terminates all processes and traces of activity from your profile when you log out of a Windows PC. Without uphclean.exe, in some instances programs will maintain a link to a registry file or keep some processes running. This creates problems if you have a roaming profile and log into another machine on the network. Additionally, it can cause minor issues for other users logging into the original PC. Founded in 1975, Microsoft's Windows Operating System is on more than 90% of IBM Compatible PCs.www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/uphclean.exe.html
