Mscman.exe?

  1. Hi,

    comodo flagged this today. It appeared while I was using Creative Media with my mp3 player. I googled it and pretty much every site referring to it said it belonged to Odyssey, a marketing company, and that it's harmful and should be removed.

    I searched for it on my systed and found:

    MSCMAN.EXE-30246B74.pf in C: Windows\Prefech
    MscMan in C: Programs\Creative\Shared Files
    MscMan.dll in C: Programs\Creative\Shared Files

    Is there a risk here? The Creative entries look ok, and the flag was raised while using Creative Media... the top one I'm not sure about. Seems odd that it appears to be part of Creative but so many site list it as dangerous.

    cheers

    Hi Kimsland,

    thanks for the confirmation - I take it that refers to all listings, including the ones in the creative folder?

    cheers
