When I start my computer this quick DOS message flashes on the bottom toolbar, "matcli". It seems to be a result of my recently adding a HP scanner. (I searched under "find" and there were 4 different "matcli" files, and under properties I was able to see that they were all connected to HP). When I start my computer, the scanner makes a startup sound. Shouldn't it be off until I use it?

Maybe this isn't a problem, I was just curious if anyone else has had the same DOS message and if it matters? Thanks.

Motive Assistant Command Line Interface. Keeps track of your computer info. Not necessarry to disable it but if it bothers you you might be able to use the start\run\msconfig and uncheck it\them so it doesn't load. Quite a few scanners (mine also) turn on with your computer and do a calibration check which is the noise you hear. Not to worry, it's all good! Hope this has helped!

Hi! Just thought I'd add that your thread solved the doubts I had myself about Matcli, an MS dos file seen on the bottom toolbar at startup.
I too noticed it only after installing my new HP scanner-copier-printer.

So yes, I'll leave it as it is, as I know its not a bug/virus or something!

Thanks again,
Firuzi Dabu.
