|Music Match software - used for ripping CDs Bill|
|MMTASK.exe has been linked with the YAB.A virus! MMTASK.TSK is used by Music Match Jason|
|This file is used by Musicmatch Jukebox to detect when a CD is inserted in your computer. When a CD is inserted, mmtask.exe launches Musicmatch Jukebox to play the CD. This file is not harmful. It follows the official Microsoft method to be notified of such events by Windows. That is, it exists so that Windows can tell it that a CD is inserted. Because it only responds to a Windows event, it does not use any CPU cyles, so it will not slow your system down. If you don't use Musicmatch Jukebox or you don't want it automatically playing CDs, you can safely remove this file. Bob|

|mmtask.exe from MusicMatch is harmless, but should it be partially or fully capitalized letters (e.g. Mmtask.exe or MMTASK.exe,) it is a VIRUS. GET RID OF IT!!! Block it first then delete it. Even if it is normal, (mmtask.exe) it may still be an ADWARE downloader, if it's not from MusicMatch. If you're not sure, GET RID OF IT!!! It's supposed to watch for you to insert a CD and automatically set up MusicMatch to use the CD (Record, play, etc.) but you can do all this manually. See also: Link James Cox|
|what bob said Jason(different one)|
|I just reformatted my computer and it is in the list of running programs, all lower case, as James said; therefore the lower case version is safe but unnecessary Bill yesterday|
