its an ati driver, also with ati (or AMD) is CCC.exe
My computer kept crashing, and the speed and accuracy, especially of spaces, was greatly diminshed. I noticed that MOM.exe and CCC.exe were using a lot memory. I deleted them both. Now my computer is running faster and doesn't crash as often. Typing anything while using Internet Explorer is still a bit delayed, but the speed and accuracy has improved. Deleting MOM.exe and CCC.exe improves speed.
Its passive and does'nt do anything just leave it
