I recently acquired 3 programs that tie up resources.  They are ccc.exe, mom.exe, and atiedxx.exe.  They are not listed under Add/Remove Programs.   It does list ATI Catalyst Install Manager.  I don't think I need any of the services this program suite is supposed to provide.  What can I do?

Stop them in Services if they appear there, changing their auto status to manual.

Then open msconfig and remove them from start up.

Those would be the conventional places to deal with the issue but if you are unable to stop them that way, pls advise.

All is well in Paradise.

atiedxx.exe, mom.exe and ccc.exe are all processes used by your ATI Catalyst Control Center. atiedxx.exe allows you to set up hot keys with CCC, while the other two processes are part of CCC itself. If you go to Control Panel>Programs, select the ATI Catalyst Install Manager and click Change. You can then uninstall the ATI software components you don't want or need.

You don't even need to install the CCC, if you don't want or don't use it.


I don't install it, I just install the driver itself and disregard all the fluff provided by AMD/ATI for gamers (I am not a gamer).
