File purpose and description:
mssysmgr.exe is a program which could have been installed by you, or may have even arrived on your computer the day you purchased it as this may have been preinstalled software. The actual disk location is also listed below, always verify where its located on your hard drive, as this makes sure it is not spyware or adware simply placed elsewhere on your computer, and using the same name in an attempt to fool you. This program comes bundled with other programs from Nero, Comcast, Snapfish, and various others. It is used for photo editing and organization. (Note that you can view all startup programs and services on your computer by using a program like Complete Cleanup). You can also use this mssysmgr.exe software to send photos and share them with other people over the web. This is considered safe, and is not required, so you can remove it if you do not use it. The location is shown below. (See the details below for the actual location of this file.)

Be aware that many tasks will be similiar names to existing tasks or processes.
You can always view the running tasks on your computer by pressing ctrl-alt-del to view the windows
"task manager", and then view the "processes" tab. This will show you all tasks running or currently active
on your PC. Although this shows you all running tasks, it does not show dll file thats are loaded, as they
get loaded as part of other processes. Many spyware writers attempt to hide their files
on your computer, for example, mssysmgr.exe may be intentionally misspelled to look like a similiar task, or spyware may be named very
similiar to a Windows system task. The reason they do this is so you cannot easily recognize the name in your tasklist
as I have mentioned above. Make sure always check the location of the file if you are concerned.
You can always find the location of mssysmgr.exe on your computer by using your Windows search options, but
