WksCal.exe *32 - Resource hog and I haven't ever installed it!
This program seems to be the Works Calendar program, which I have never installed on this computer (Dell Inspiron 620S/Win 7), yet it has opened, at times, up to 12 different processes. I can't seem to get rid of it, since Works doesn't even show up in the "Programs and Features" list. Though I haven't observed this personally, other forums have said that if it is deleted from the drive, it reinstalls itself. How can I disable or stop it and what happens if I do? Can anyone here help explain this mystery?

Run msconfig (run as Administrator). Go to the Services tab. If WksCal.exe is listed, make sure that it is not checked. Do the same on the Startup tab. Be sure to click Apply. Then log out of Windows. When you log back in, the problem should be solved.

Important: Some malware camouflages itself as WksCal.exe, particularly when located in the c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 folder. Therefore, you should check the WksCal.exe process on your PC to see if it is a threat.Cheers,
