I suppose it came when I loaded broadband software from AOL
This file is related with Bellsouth and Broadjump Software for DSL Connection
  Michael Manuel  
Installed as part of my SBCYahoo DSL connection software
I got it when i installed sbc yahoo dsl I think
Don't Friggen know, I never had SBCyahoo DSL...ever...I have Roadrunner Cable connection, yet this .exe still pops up...wierd?....I have no clue about this process...
yep michaels right
This program was running in background and taking 99% of memory. Every time I stopped it, the program relaunched. I had not idea what it was doing, deleted it from the system
Just had to re-install my operating system after some spyware attacked me...this appeared just b4 the system failure when I installed ntl broadband.
SBC Yahoo installs it with their DSL package. Some folks think it is Spyware and my WinTasks program says it is, but SBC insists it is necessary for connection calibration. I have mine blocked by my Zone Alarm firewall so it can't access the internet.
dsl spyware
came with my sbcyahoo dsl package, i usually quit the program and i denied it access from my zonealarm. it doesnt really seem to do anything...but, you never know
It loaded onto my XP system when I installed Bellsouth DSL from the CD. As soon as I start up my McAfee says "Program trying to access the internet"...yup! it's cfd.exe . I don't want xs programs running that benefit others' agendas for ads, etc. I'm deleting it!
It's used by multiple ISPs, used as a DSL Spyware as the last post, another way to gain information on their users, delete it or block it in your application level firewall.
I don't know which program put cfd.exe on my computer, but I blocked it on McAffee just in case. Everything works just fine without it.
It monitors your broadband connection for errors. Auto fixes isp errors.

My XP was freezing on me every day, sometimes even every minute. I try EZ antivirus and right away it detected CFD.exe as a virus and removed it, and since then my PC works like a champ. I no more connect through SBC DSL connection package, I connect manually it is fast and unbelievably faster.
I installed SBC Yahoo! DSL on my XP computer and was subsequently unable to log in for more than a brief moment to my computer. During that brief moment, I managed to open up a text file that was on my desktop, which somehow halted the process that kicked me off into a blank desktop with only the background picture. I then ran System Restore from the Start menu (Accessories/System Tools) to restore to a point in time before I installed SBC Yahoo! DSL. This process evidently did not clean up CFP.exe, which McAfee spotted immediately and, upon reading the posts on this page, I blocked it.
Credits.Txt in Broadjump/ClientFoundation folder states, this product is distributed with Macromedia's Flash Player Software. I have no idea what it does.
This is a spyware/connection monitoring software that was bundled in when your broadband software was installed, it can be safely removed by going to add/remove programs "BroadJump\Client Foundation" your broadband connection will not be effected by removing this software. I have added a link to the EULA to reaffirm this.
came with DSL; I denied access, seems ok
It does come with SWBell DSL. CFD.exe is not a spyware and is not used for advertising purposes, it is used to check your system settings and also network settings associated with your computer. However, McAfee is now detecting it as adware... Maybe because it is logging connectivity? Or, it could be that this filename can be used by dangerous spyware and adware programs to mislead us. Anyways, you should be able to remove it through control panel or use the link below to download a program to help you remove it. Just make sure you really want to remove it - you might later need it.

I didn't know I had cdf.exe until I installed Eztrust. I always chose the option to deny access. I installed Eztrust because I had Pop-ups that were cascading upon each other. I am very finicky about applications or .exe's if I don't understand their purpose. I find all of your suggestions extremely helpful.
I found the source of the file it was installed from the RoadRunner installation CD, and ended up in the RoadRunner subdirectory under Program Files. The Broadjump software was removed through the Control Panel Add/Remove Programs. My resources moved from 37-65% to 97-99% after the CFP.exe was removed.
I know nothing about this except for what the kind folks above mentioned. Everything was freezing on me, saw in my CPU that it was this slowing things up, found you guys, and agree 100% that this was the problem. Just wanted to say thanks!
Came in when I went onto NTL Broadband. Has soemthing to do with its on-line support
I was playing freecell and my cursor locked. Looked at processes and CFD.exe was using up all my mips. I had read about it before, so I deleted it. Voila! System took off like lightening again.

CDF.exe was installed with my bellsouth dsl, I blocked it with zone alarm and everything seems to run fine. I think im going to delete it from the startup list.
Description: BroadJump Client Foundation. Broadband troubleshooting software installed by various companies. Not required and you can remove it via Add/Remove programs - pcreview.co.uk

spyware, i use zonealarm and block it for logging on the internet. i if i didnt block it, then many pop-ups would kill be. EVERY! BLOCK IT
Installs with SBC DSL software. Connects to internet on its own. Disable in Zone Alarm/Firewall to stop it from reporting. Uses up a bit of RAM.
i use to use ntl's tv.phone and broadband using a setup topbox, when i did this i never had this file running. When i ended my phone and tv then gave back my topbox an engineer came and installed a broadband modem gave me a setup cd n fled. Once i set up my new broadband via the modem-this file turned up. On my start up cd there was broadband, a broadband medic n netguard anti virus program. I think this file is related to the broadband medic program. It is certainly a broadband file.
Freezing up, cpu usage 100%, kicked off, BUT IN ADDITION TO whenever I allow zone alarm to let cfd.exe run instead of denying it... My computer would have sporatic clicking like there was a phantom using my computer with me?.
Bundled with ATT SBCYahoo! DSL, Panda Antivirus and a number of others block internet connections made with Broadjump Client Foundation (cfd.exe). Apparently, Antivirus, Malware, Spyware, etc., considers this to be an unnecessary risk to your computer and software environment. As it seems to be an unmonitered communication to and from the internet and hidden while running, it may be an unnecesssary threat in so far as the user doesn't run the application, ie-automated. It doesn't seem that tech support from your ISP needs to have it installed on your computer to determine connection problem
I spent weeks trying to figure this out !! I even asked the tech's at RR they told me they never heard of it .!!! UNBElievable! I did block it on EZ Firewall and it and all other resources improved the same as Halsey's .

It is part of Broadjump client managment. It is the trouble shooting software installed with some DSL packages

From McAfee 10/01/06 BroadJump DSL Client Foundation The BroadJump DSL Client Foundation program is provided by your Internet service provider (ISP). This program automates many different tasks, such as automated updates, as well as anti-virus and line-condition testing. This program is also used before a high-speed install is ordered, in order to pre-qualify a person based upon distance and line condition. While its exact functions differ from ISP to ISP, these functions are often viewed as beneficial. If you block the BroadJump client from communicating, these functions will not work properl

CFD also uses other programs and links through the Dynamic links Library to access the internet. I have had 46 instances of this. Similarly to your comments I don't know what it was doing either but, once removed everything has speeded back up again. I too believe that it appears to have come from the NTL broadband installation CD
Remove It or Block Access w/ZoneAlarm, etc.
  Max Moss  
spybot n nod32 ok'd it, running ok
  james c  
I used add/remove programs to delete the CFD.exe file... then did a search to see it was removed and i found CFD.EXE-01772012.pf any thoughts on why this wasn't there before?
scanned with multiple virus scanners

All I know is that for months after getting DSL installed, the computer would freeze up on me. I'm going to deny access to see if that clears up the freezing problem. Thanks
From my ntl driver cd
Remove it in Add/Remove Prog. It is not a vital program, it will not damage your computer if it is removed. Harmful if left installed, unless you like people taking information about your viewing habits and what files you have on your computer. After you uninstall, go to Search, type cfd.exe, and delete the file it left behind. Also, people you DO NOT need that crappy SBC software to connect to the internet!!
Bundled with ATT SBCYahoo! DSL, Look at your FOLDER - C:\Program Files\BroadJump\Client Foundation for "license.txt" It also has an uninstall statement, "To uninstall CFD.exe, or any other applications installed by this Software on your computer, please follow standard un-installation procedures for your operating system.."
As soon as I disabled cfd.exe in msconfig utility, bootup was MUCH faster and all log ons are faster too. I have also noticed that since this program has been running, I very frequently get spam from a sender utilizing a name that I have recently typed into the computer while on line. Hmmmmmm. I'll let you know if this peculiar habit ceases now. Oh, since I disabled this gem, I get popups telling me that msconfig wants to run EVERY TIME the computer boots up! At least I get to say "NO". But one wonders if this is so the charming makers of cfd.exe can set their program to start auto again.

It also comes as part of the Virgin installtion package. I don't think it causes any problems in my case but I have now blocked it anyway just to be safe.
This file could be part of Comodo Firewall
The main application of the Comodo Firewall Pro

CFP is Comodo Firewall Pro
  JW Finch  
This is the Comodo Firewall Pro. Check through msconfig from run on start menu.
I know after it was gone I was able to record music again.
It's an essential part of COMODO Anti Virus & Firewall

Slows down my computer with this task running its a virus apparnetly none of my mates have it with COMODO
Its basically a form of spyware that DSL and other internet companies use to monitor what you visit... basically them getting more out of you than you know.
I was supporting a customer whose machine suddenly started freezing and running very slowly. Uninstalling Broadcom Suite (and related Broadcom programs) resolved the issue, and did not affect their Comcast connection.
The trouble with this software is that when you have the original, unmalwared version of cfd.exe it does function as described by some greenlighters here, as an autofix and connection manager for many ISP's broadband connections. However, malware of many breeds will call themselves cfd.exe, delete the original and start communicating masquerading as the ISP's program... many can even "take over" the original and all it's data and connectivity, which becomes a powerful tool for botmanagers when it's running on a high spec machine with a fast fibreoptic broadband connection.

Was Sie bei CFD Problemen tun können

Ein aufgeräumter Computer ist die beste Voraussetzung, um CFD Probleme zu vermeiden. Hierzu sollten Sie einen Malware-Scan durchführen, Ihre Festplatte aufräumen (mit 1cleanmgr und 2sfc /scannow), nicht mehr benötigte 3Programme deinstallieren, Autostart Programme überprüfen (mittels 4msconfig) und 5Windows Updates automatisch installieren. Denken Sie immer daran ein Backup oder zumindest einen Wiederherstellungspunkt zu erstellen.

Bei einem konkreten Problem überlegen Sie bitte, was Sie als letztes getan bzw. installiert haben, bevor das Problem das erste Mal auftrat. Nutzen Sie den Befehl 6resmon, um diejenigen Prozesse zu ermitteln, die Ihr Problem verursachen. Selbst bei schwerwiegenden Problemen sollten Sie anstatt einer Windows-Neuinstallation lieber eine Reparaturinstallation oder ab Windows 8 den Befehl 7DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth ausführen. Damit wird das Betriebssystem ohne Datenverlust repariert.

Zur weiteren Analyse haben sich folgende Programme als nützlich herausgestellt: Der ASecurity Task Manager untersucht den aktiven CFD Prozess auf Ihrem Computer und zeigt anschaulich was der Prozess macht. Das bekannte Tool BMalwarebytes Anti-Malware sagt Ihnen, ob die Datei CFD.exe auf Ihrem PC lästige Werbung einblendet und so Ihren PC ausbremst. Solche unerwünschten Adware Programme werden oft von einer Antivirus Software nicht als Virus eingestuft und deshalb nicht erkannt.
