Maybe, but they are two problems which manifest substantially similar
symptoms, as perceived by the end user.

And in so doing, it breaks those processes, in a manner which no end
user should be expected to tolerate. This rogue Logitech crapware
should be permanently banished, to whatever "Great Institution in
the Sky", or wherever, which is appropriately equipped to deal with
such intransigently offensive software products.
And of course, the very connotation of "infection" of other processes
would qualify this Logitech crapware as a virus; isn't it illegal to
disseminate software virii in Switzerland, or in the "more than 100
countries" in which Logitech trades?
