RatingNothing except it's always causing a general protection fault. My antivirus, spyware, firewall don't catch it. Natalie
RatingCauses system freezes, and malfunctions in many different software (especially midi audio).
Ratingmmtask.tsk is a normally hidden process which is instigated by Microsoft Windows 9x and ME only. It allows Windows to operate a multi-tasking system for multimedia based data. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated under ME especially unless u want to see quite a few problems with explorer and multimedia issues. There is a mmtask.exe that is a problem and it will have several files (all exe, dialer, mmtask0.exe, mmtask1.exe, etc) which must be deleted. Camile
