when starting up my computer I receive this error " can not find c:\windows\system\mmtask.exe. I believe I inadvertantly erased this file. Is it needed? Is there a way to retrieve it or download from somewhere if I do need it?
Thanks

The file is most definately NOT needed, here's pacs-portals description:

MMtask Service - mmtask.exe - Added as a result of a VIRUS related to the SOBIG.E VIRUS!

I checked it out brindle but that doesnt seem to be it. The word "mmtask.exe" is just as I have spelled it here. both m's are lower case. The site you sent me to shows the word "Mmtask.exe"

depending on where mmtask.exe is located it could be either upper case or lower case. same file though.

Keep in mind that Windows is NOT case sensitive.
mmtask.exe
Mmtask.exe
MMTASK.EXE
MmTaSk.exe
are all the same file as far as windows is concerned.
