It's a musicmatch process. Commenting it out is OK
can be troublesome, mine completed 17,000,000 page faults in 12 hours. I delete the file and musicmatch is fine.
It worked fine for 2 years, now it page faults constantly - 2.5 million page faults so far today. It works on some systems, bad on other. I deleted it and musicmatch works fine.
Renamed mmdiag.exe that seems to have fixed the problem. MM opens fast and no error message
its part of Musicmatch 10
musicmatch says it's a diagnostic file. I renamed 3 instances - caused no problems
If you use Musicmatch Jukebox, keep this file. I've had it forever, and my system works fine. It does not eat up my memory, cause me error messages, page faults, or the disabling of the Jukebox. If you know you're not going to be using MMJ, open Task Manager, and end it's process (until system restart). Might as well end mim.exe, too since they go hand-in-hand. Or, you could uninstall the Jukebox in Add or Remove Programs.

Best practices for resolving MMDiag issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with MMDiag.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the 6resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem.
