mmc.exe

What is this? This error comes up when I close something like Device Manager. Does not seem to hurt anything. What can I do to correct this?
This is the error message:

mmc.exe-Application Error
The instruction at "ox1000935d" referenced at "0xoo9a0008".
The memory could not be "read"
Click ok to terminate the program.

Hmm, sounds suspicious, alarm bells are ringing in my head telling me it's a virus. Do a virus check this minute.

I have one file called MMC.exe thats installed as part of win2k SP2, so its probably nothing to worry about (appart from that its broken)

It also resides in the system32 folder of windows directory (in my case c:/WINNT/system32/mmc.exe)

I have WinXP on my system. The good news is no virus. I am thought at first Norton was causing it. So I uninstalled and still the same error.
I suspected it was or is one of WinXP's updates. As I got them all at the same time I have no idea which one may be it.
It does not seem to cause any problems other than what I posted.

MMC is a program that is included with W2k, XP, (not sure about NT). Its a pretty cool program.
It lets you do almost anything to your Windows, as long as you have admin rights. You can manage your hard drives; format, delete, create partitions. Also you can do all sorts of stuff like user management. Click on File, then select Add/Remove Snap-in.

More info.

I'll play with it a little. Any other way to access it other than from the sys32 folder?
Mostly I just want to make it stop making errors.

MySQL Server 7 causes this problem

"MMC is a Windows-based multiple document interface (MDI) application that heavily uses Internet technologies. Both Microsoft and ISVs extend the console by writing MMC snap-ins, which perform management tasks."

"MMC provides a common host environment for snap-ins, provided by Microsoft® and third party software vendors. Snap-ins provide the actual management behavior; MMC itself does not provide any management functionality. The MMC environment provides for seamless integration between snap-ins."

Can you simply OK the error message, and the function still works? Compaq (ewwwww) has this issue with Win2K with no fix.

Orbit, yes everything still works. I believe mmc works also. I just click "ok" when I get the error and everything seems ok.
