MOM.exe: Here’s what you need to know about this file
Many Windows users are encountering the MOM.exe file error when starting their systems. However, there is not much information available about the origin of this file and why it causes Windows errors. MOM.exe errors affect all Windows versions, but it appears they are prevalent for Windows 7.
MOM.exe file: What is it?
MOM.exe is part of the Catalyst Control Centre, an element of the AMD Catalyst driver. The tool supports various video and display customization options. Actually, AMD’s Radeon Software Crimson replaced CCC last year, which is the reason why MOM.exe errors are more frequent on Windows 7 computers. Windows 10 devices rely on the newer Crimson driver which offers huge speed improvements and better settings for gaming, video, and display quality options.
MOM.exe is located in Program Files. If this folder is, by any chance, located elsewhere, chances are it could be a malware hiding as a CCC file. In this situation, the best solution is to run a full system scan and install an anti-malware tool.
How to fix MOM.exe file errors
The MOM.exe error indicates that some files are broken or corrupted. The easiest way to fix this error is to simply update your computer’s drivers. Most of the times, this solution eliminates the MOM.exe file errors.
It is worth mentioning that the MOM.exe file is not a Windows core file. As a result, you can also uninstall it from the Control Panel, especially if the file is malicious. Keep in mind that newer versions of CCC may be displayed as Catalyst Install Manager or ATI Catalyst Install Manager. Uninstall both these version if they are available on your machine.
