MOM.exe is directly related to your graffics and is usually preinstalled on your computer from ati technologies, it monitors the graffics and the cards that you use and reports to the catylist control center  See also: Link challam1064

It dramatically slows your computer. I've got it on my computer and its not doing anything but it looks quite mysterious for a .exe file to be called MOM. I don't want to delete it and wreck my computer, I've scanned it with Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 and the report is saying its safe. I don't have any problems with it so far but reading the reviews and votes I've wondered whether it would improve the CPU usage of other system processes, therefore increasing the speed of the computer.

its a spyware andy
MOM.exe is directly related to your graffics
ATI Catalyst Control program. Harmless. WolfRunner
try installing dot net 4.0 neer
Monitoring program from ATI Technologies Pedja
It can be mimicked and could be a trojan, that's what happened to me. Jarett
the file itself showed up on a firewall alert as trying to start another process. MOM.exe has no signature, and I've never seen any firewall react to it before. I blocked it, if it keeps trying to start another process again (2 attempts so far with 2 pids) I'll terminate it, and quarantine it, and see what happens. ...first I'm going to check when it was installed, with the original drivers? or as an 'update' if it's an update, I'll roll back the drivers and delete it.
ATI - never again, ATI Software makes promlems on all of my pcs, updates causes black screens and such shitty programs produces error messages. it just should make a f**** picture! Peter
Its passive and does'nt do anything just leave it PRO
My computer kept crashing, and the speed and accuracy, especially of spaces, was greatly diminshed. I noticed that MOM.exe and CCC.exe were using a lot memory. I deleted them both. Now my computer is running faster and doesn't crash as often. Typing anything while using Internet Explorer is still a bit delayed, but the speed and accuracy has improved. Deleting MOM.exe and CCC.exe improves speed.
its an ati driver, also with ati (or AMD) is CCC.exe
once i saw this mom.exe at any pc,it will cause TROJAN infection at the end.action taken (format pc) Nor Azman Bin Yaakob

It's from ATI and it doesn't heart your computer. ;) Villa
If you have ATI Catalyst Control Center, it shouldn't be a problem. It is one of those default things that happens  See also: Link Darion

ATI Catalyst Control program. if you own AMD Graphics Card. it will be on your system Deepak Pore
It is Catalyst Control Center: Monitoring program, and I scanned with malwarebytes all by itself, and it didn't came as a threat. At least for my side. K-joy-programer12
It's for ATI videocards.
my friend told me its the drivers for your gpu
if you have an ATI Radeon graphics card with the ATI Catalyst Control Panel software, MOM.exe is supposed to be there. It's part of the ATI Catalyst Control Center, an application for controlling many of the video card's advanced functions, such as 3D image processing. JOHN
Never even saw it pop up into a window until, guess when, Mother's day. It caused a black screen which I needed to perform complete shut down to resolve.
its a have to have if you want to make use of the ccc. Otherwise you wont be overclocking nothing. jimmy
It's not good. It gave me a firewall alert the first time I used it, so I let it go and said "Scan anyway", and now, let's just say, I have a new computer. Tony
It comes with ATI, your graphics controller Virus King

It is a tedious job to frequently delete the MOM.exe Application error meassages, otherwise it its OK. Moreover it slows down the computer, especially MS Office files that takes around 2 minutes or more time to open the same. Prafullachandra Jani
Belongs to the ATI video card drivers.
It is Catalyst Control Center Monitoring Program. Its 100% harmless and i think it comes with most Packard Bell computers. But also other types FluffyCakeMaster69

Part of ATI Catalyst Control Center. Installed by default on HP-Pavilion-15 notebooks. Alexander
It is needed for your ATI GPU, do not delete it. It is required or your computer will be exceptionally slow. XxBigPaPiPIMPxX
Part Of AMD Catalyst Antu
I have this process but it works fine. It's not harmless. Bob Express

It was taking up 20% of my CPU time. I killed it and have noticed faster response overall in everything else I do on my computer. Also, when I kill it, my CPU fan goes back to its normal 'idle' speed instead of full-on. Jim
It is just a AMD CCC program. If you have CCC installed, It shouldent be a virus. explodoboy
ATI catalyst christos greece
It doesn't do anything bad, and it shouldn't do anything to your computer. It comes with the computer as a file for Catalyst Control. I have never seen this take up much ram at all (Very little in fact) and it will not slow down games that you play. Chris. Much experience with software.
It's part of the Graphic Processing Unit driver for ATI and AMD chipsets. It has minimal impact on system performance. TheITGuy
