What is it?

API interception library for CA Anti-Spyware, a spyware detection program previously known as PestPatrol. PestPatrol is an anti-malware product, designed to protect a computer system against threats such as adware, spyware and viruses.
Description of cahook.dll from CA
There is a good chance your computer is infected with spyware. Spyware finds its way onto unsuspecting computers through various hidden methods. Once infected, your PC can get bogged down by hidden processes, unwanted pop ups, web browser hijackers and many other symptoms, and your personal information can be exposed. CA Anti-Spyware finds these nasty pests, then quarantines them, so that your computer will work like expected.
