Process name: mimBoot
Product: Musicmatch Jukebox
Company: Musicmatch (musicmatch.com)
Mimboot.exe is a background process for Musicmatch Jukebox that is run when Windows starts. Its sole purpose is to load the file mim.exe, which decreases the load time of the Jukebox application upon running, and it handles most of the functions called by the GUI mmjb.exe. Yahoo! purchased Musicmatch in 2004 and subsequently rebranded the software as Yahoo! Music Jukebox. Yahoo! Music Jukebox went out of business four years later, and the software is no longer available for download. Some websites do offer old versions of Musicmatch Jukebox for download, but many of them are not compatible with Windows 7.

Note: Any malware can be named anything - so you should check where the files of the running processes are located on your disk. If a "non-Microsoft" .exe file is located in the C:\Windows or C:\Windows\System32 folder, then there is a high risk for a virus, spyware, trojan or worm infection! Check it out!

|mimboot.exe is a process associated with eMusicmatch Jukebox. The process makes sure that Musicmatch is launched when starting up the system. This is a non-essential process. Disabling or enabling this is down to user preference. Norman|
|It stops me from using musicmatch|
|MusicMatch component Ole|
|if you kill this process, then the speakers wont work anymore until you reboot; at least on my PC. Mantiko|
|The process name is "Musicmatch Jukebox Startup"|
|this is a non-essential musicmatch jukebox file. You can still use the jukebox if you turn this off at startup. To turn it off, go RUN- "msconfig"- STARTUP TAB- UNCHECK MIMBOOT (you will have to restart). I have had problems with ms office help after doing this, but I'm not sure if it's related. If it gives you problems, just turn it back on. It doesn't do anything dangerous. Dave|
