I have just started using Windows 7 64-bit on a laptop. I also use ZoneAlarm, which has started flagging up outgoing internet access requests by a process named PMMdatamgr. I can't find a reliable explanation of what it is by internet searches (Google etc) as some say it is malicious, others that it is normal. I don't know what to believe, so I block it each time, but perhaps I'm blocking someything important. Can anyone tell me for certain what it is, please?

From what I can tell, the file can be either a virus or it comes with Hitman.  If you have the game, Hitman, then the file is probably valid.  If not, it is probably a virus.  I found this information only in one place, so I am not sure of its accuracy.

Thanks Ray. I've never heard of Hitman, so it's not that, in which case, from what you say, it looks like it may be a virus. I'm horrified to get one so soon on a new machine, but I'll give it a scan now and see what comes up.

Hi, I too have a new computer with Windows 7, use ZoneAlarm and see the PMMdatamgr alerts.  Have you found any further information about PMMdatamgr?
thanks

I have used AVG for a virus scan, but it revealed nothing. I suspect PMMdatamgr is part of W7, but it seems to be performing well without PMMdatamgr having Internet access, so until I find anything to the contrary I propose to continue to block it. I always block things that I don't recognise.
