it will not stop after closing Juniper website
It's installed under my appdata folder when I access a VPN server running Juniper software. Cache Cleaner 6.2.0 is a 230k exe. When I sign out from the VPN it scans my Temporary Internet Files cache (probably to delete cached intranet data) then shuts down.
