What is mmtask.exe? Should I remove it?

mmtask.exe is the piece of the file that can be found on the machine and raise questions

mmtask.exe is the part of the Music Match Jukebox. Located in “C:\Program Files\MusicMatch\MusicMatch Jukebox\”. Users report that MusicMatch Jukebox will still run properly even if this is removed from the startup. This task is the file that runs in the background and watches your optical drive for the insertion or removal of a CD. When a change is detected, it reports it to MusicMatch Jukebox so the status information in the program can be updated. A problem with the file can cause the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available, but in most cases, you need to run the AV tool to make sure this is the malware issue.
