This file is a COM exe server that manages the database and devices for MusicMatch programs. By default it starts at user login; it helps MusicMatch applications come up faster and also provides for the following capabilities even when a MusicMatch application isn't running: 1) watchfolder operation (automatic add/update of tracks to the database); 2) UPnP content directory services.

It loads on startup and locks my box with error message "no disk in drive". To unlock, go to task manager and kill (stop) mim.exe. This is a MusicMatch program that is running all the time, consuming resources. On my Win XP Pro box I got rid of the unwanted startup by deleting it from the Registry at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\MimBoot. I now do not have the ugly startup issues. Don't try to get info on this from MusicMatch as they are without clue. If you manually start MusicMatch and close it the mim.exe will be left in memory consuming prodigious mem ant

This file sometimes blocks Music Match from shutting down. It may also interfere with other processes performance if it is in this "hung" state. Try opening task manager and ending this process if you face such a situation (eg: you've quit MMJukebox and you are trying to close Outlook but outlook is not responding - replace Outlook with any other application name). Also when you close MMJukebox and try to launch it again because of this process MMJukebox will never launch sometimes. Ending this processes task would be the only solution to this problem.
I have a manager for my TDK Mojo256f MP3 player. It is called "TDK UniFi for Mojo." Whenever I try to trun it, I get an error message saying that another copy is running. I finally used the task manager to determine that mim.exe was causing the problem. I get the same message if I run MMJB after running TDK Unifi, but MMJB will still run after I close the message. However, I have to end the process for mim.exe every time I use TDK UniFi.
In early versions of MM 10 you could remove the mim.exe from your system but now this causes MM not to start up anymore. I don't like mim.exe because on my computer it causes my cd/dvd players not to refresh anymore. You can prevent mim from starting up at windows start up but it becomes active as soon as you start MM, after that you have to manually stop the program via ctrl-alt-delete, even after MM is closed.

Causes an issue with MPIO Manager 2 for Digitalway MPIO player. Kill in task manager and MPIO player will start. Also Dell Musicmatch doesn't recognize mp3 player unless kill this task first (then it starts again!)
I found two copies of mim.exe in two musicmatch subfolders: (1) MusicMatch Jukebox and (2) Musicmatch Update/MMJB). So this file should be considered an integral part of the MusicMatch program. I don't know what it does, but it may occasionally use an extraordinary amount of CPU power, even when I'm not running the MusicMatch software. This seems to be a self-terminating affair and shouldn't be considered a real problem.

It's using 50% cpu 3.7 mb of ram atm. I believe this is due to my poor cable modem connection. I suspect that mim.exe is associated with the file tagging feature in music match. I think it is trying to download album art that has not downloaded yet. No facts on this just an observation.
This also seems to be buggy and wants to prevent Windows from shutting down properly. You find it not responding during shutdown. "Shellconhiddenwindow" problem. MusicMatch programmers: Clean up your act and stop using so many resources!

Starts on start up,adds 3 processes on my task manager.Starts without musicmatch and boost my cpu.Freezes my cam and bogs my computer,I think all should block and kill task at first sight,no problems since I did.
On install, set to start (as mimboot.exe) with Windows regardless of user preference @ HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run Re-starts when MMJB runs no matter what. Hogs 5-35% of CPU, 2-10MB RAM. Task manager would not close it. When I shut down internet, CPU usage dropped to 0%. Nothing in their support "knowledge base" about it. Looks like spyware to me! Write to MM and complain!

Music Match Jukebox process
It causes the ShellConHiddenWindow error to show up at shutdown and causes the shutdown process to take forever. I removed it once and didn't have any problems for about a week and then I couldn't open MMJB. Put in back into the startup process and am looking for a way to get rid of it at startup and still have access to the jukebox
When I installed ver 10 upgrade, MS outlook would not function with MS word as the mail editior. Appeared to be competing for resources and drove CPU use to 100%. Uninstalling Music Match corrected the problem.
MusicMatch file you get with upgrading to 10. Uses 50-60% of CPU for no apparent reason. I just deleted the file and I have had no operating problems with MusicMatch or any programs on my computer. MusicMatch actually opens quicker with less problems with out it. I keep the deleted file in my recycle bin just incase!
slows pc down too much and very insidious, what is the program doing, my beliefe is that it is spyware sending info back to sony etc, if you have peerguardian running the site which music match connumicates with is in the black list from peerguardian... very dangerous
I finally uninstalled Jukebox - I got tired of killing mim.exe after every use of Jukebox. If I forgot to kill it, it used 50-60% of my CPU. There are other audio players without such ridiculous resource killers (and thanks, Matt- I wondered why my fan was unbelievably loud on start up - after uninstalling Jukebox, it no longer happens.)
It also seems to have a hold on external hard drives. I always got the 'The Generic Volume cannot be stopped....' message when I wanted to disconnect my mini drive. After a shut down mim.exe, it worked without problem.
MusicMatch component - I say dangerous as it could seriously impact your ability to deliver 'actual work' from your PC - Ironically, it consumes CPU just as you close Musicmatch and for instance leave your desk with perhaps a critical process running
mim.exe is belonging to the Musicmatch Jukebox software. Musicmatch Jukebox is a multimedia application supporting most known media formats. This is a non essential system process and, disabling or enabling this is down to user preference.

Appears after installation of Music Match Jukebox. Seems a suspicious that the process still runs after ending MMJ application. Did not keep it running long enough to find out what it does or does not do.
Running on XP, sometimes prevents MMJB from loading after shutting down the first occurrence. Stops Photoshop from loading, Stops selective other programs from loading. Kill mim.exe, they load instantly.
It is a part of MusicMatch. If you look into the reports of your virus internet worm protection. You see. Mim.exe is making internet connections. Is it spyware? F... Yahoo Musicmatch does not give an anser. The are sorry for the inconvenience.
I had also had problems. After uninstall and reinstall Musicmatch, everything seems okay. Then I had my MicroCruzer USB with U3. Everytime I plugged that USB in my computer locked up. Sandisk tech support says there's a conflict between the U3 software with mim.exe. I now know that I cannot use my MicroCruzer USB jump drive while mim.exe is on. So if anyone is looking for a fix, you might want to look for mim conflicts.

It slows down my computer a lot. Don't know why it's like this on this version of MM but never had the problem before. Have been using MM for 10 years now and never had this problem before MMJB V 10.

EVERY time I log on to my computer, I get an error message saying mim.exe has encountered a problem and has to close. This happens even when MusicJukebox has not been used. I didn't even know it was running, so it must have been doing it behind the scenes without me wanting it to. Disturbing thought. When I click okay to close it, I get a run time error.
Definitely part of the defunct Music Match program that was purchased by Yahoo Music. It often ran in the background consuming 50% CPU cycles even when Music Match was no longer used. I removed it by Uninstall Music Match.

Was Sie bei mim Problemen tun können

Ein aufgeräumter Computer ist die beste Voraussetzung, um mim Probleme zu vermeiden. Hierzu sollten Sie einen Malware-Scan durchführen, Ihre Festplatte aufräumen (mit cleanmgr und sfc /scannow), nicht mehr benötigte Programme deinstallieren, Autostart Programme überprüfen (mittels msconfig) und Windows Updates automatisch installieren. Denken Sie immer daran ein Backup oder zumindest einen Wiederherstellungspunkt zu erstellen.

Bei einem konkreten Problem überlegen Sie bitte, was Sie als letztes getan bzw. installiert haben, bevor das Problem das erste Mal auftrat. Nutzen Sie den Befehl resmon, um diejenigen Prozesse zu ermitteln, die Ihr Problem verursachen. Selbst bei schwerwiegenden Problemen sollten Sie anstatt einer Windows-Neuinstallation lieber eine Reparaturinstallation oder ab Windows 8 den Befehl DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth ausführen. Damit wird das Betriebssystem ohne Datenverlust repariert.

Zur weiteren Analyse haben sich folgende Programme als nützlich herausgestellt: Der Security Task Manager untersucht den aktiven mim Prozess auf Ihrem Computer und zeigt anschaulich was der Prozess macht. Das bekannte Tool Malwarebytes Anti-Malware sagt Ihnen, ob die Datei mim.exe auf Ihrem PC lästige Werbung einblendet und so Ihren PC ausbremst. Solche unerwünschten Adware Programme werden oft von einer Antivirus Software nicht als Virus eingestuft und deshalb nicht erkannt.
