Hi Syed Hassan,


1. What is the complete error message you are receiving?

2. Have you made any recent hardware or software changes on the system?


Cli.exe files are used for ATI catalyst driver programs, which work with the ATI graphics card.

Method 1:

If you have installed ATI graphic card on your system, then try updating the latest version of graphic card drivers and check if the issue persists.

Method 2:

If you are still facing the issue, then you may try performing a clean boot and check.

A clean boot helps to verify if any third party application services or startup item is causing this issue.

You may refer to the following article to perform clean boot.

Note: After troubleshooting, make sure to put the computer to start as usual as mentioned in the above article to configure Windows to use a Normal startup state.
