Musicmatch's jukebox; a non-dangerous file as long as it is NOT in a windows file... enless you put it there.
Must go to Musicmatch/Options/Settings/Player/Quick Play in System Tray, and uncheck Enable box to stop it from running. If you just uncheck it in msconfig startup menu and don't do the previous it will reappear in the system tray. Just thought you'd like to know!
