This is not a native windows file. It's a common program name and may be different file from different, possibly legit, vendors--but some are malware. Registry entry in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Currentversion/Run for Name=DHCP and program C\WINNT\System32\Client.exe should be removed (IMO). Attempts to access internet on its own. ZoneAlarm detects and blocks attempt by MM2B_Client. Will generate error message "Runtime Error 10061 Connection is forcefully rejected." if it is blocked.
