It's used to protect files played in Windows Media Player from hacking. You can terminate it, but that can/will stop the player.

Totally unnecessary--unless you are stupid enough to purchase tracks with DRM. Delete mfpmp.exe and if you have any files that won't play any more, convert them to mp3. Aside from that, there's not a whole lot you can do about.
