    I've been trying to research about MOM.exe and I thought it was keylog,so I haven't downloaded my Radeon Xpress 200,I've been reading posts here, and I was wondering, so is MOM.exe not keylog? Cause if not I'll download it now .

    I'M GOING TO SAY IT NOW, ONCE AND FOR ALL: MOM.exe SUPPLIED WITH ATI'S CATALYST DISPLAY DRIVERS IS NOT A KEYLOGGER/WORM/SPYWARE!!!

    Isn't this obvious?

    The most likely thing that's happened, is that ATI have added their own file called MOM.exe to the Catalyst package without realising that there was also a virus/keylogger that went by the same name.

    I would assume that ATI's MOM.exe is entirely safe.

    You douche bag!

    OH! now I feel much better about the whole thing. Someone wrote in huge ass letters that it's fine now.
    I don't understand how it got past testing unnoticed.
    If you are so certain why not enlighten me with some of your oh so powerful knowlege. I read all of the posts but nothing made me feel better about having the goddamn thing giving me warnings all the time. AAARGH!!!

    **ck it I'm getting a MAC.

    Ok... when something like this happens try looking on google for other people with the same problem. all you need to do is install NET Framework 2.0 or better and reinstall the driver.

    P.S. I highly doubt that theres any spyware or malware in the driver from the ati/amd website, they are professional companies and if they had brains then they would know they were going to get caught and that wouold be a big deal.

    Not really, seeing as how your first post was bumping a topic that is months old. MOM.exe has been in every driver since 7.2, and is now a non-issue.

    P.S. He he, I'm only 16 years old, isn't it great that I can spell correctly, use correct grammar, and capitalize the beginning of sentences?

    Sorry for trying to help, I guess I won't do that anymore.

    I can speak in complete sentences too!

    Ok, I registered just to prove that mom.exe is just a bad name ATI chose for the program.

    I know, I know, symnatec picked it up. I've researched many threads like "I just lost 1500 on the day i installed" that's basic, do you think he bought anything that same day?

    also, the symnatec thing, if you research it more it shows where these files are created, in program files, WINDOWS, not in your ATI Driver.

    There's nothing wrong with this mom.exe, ATI just chose a bad name :D

    No, it's not really important enough.

    Catalyst 7.10 will be released in a while, so this thread serves no purpose anymore.
