What is Agrsmmsg.exe?
Agrsmmsg.exe is a process that is used by AMR (audio-modem riser) modems. The file is installed as the default on your PC and is more commonly found on laptop and notebook computers. Your computer uses this file to communicate with the internal modem.
The file is located in the Windows folder (C:\Windows) or at times in the System32 folder (C:\Windows\System32) of your system. Although this process is not essential for your operating system, you must not terminate it until you suspect that it is causing problems on your system.
Problems with Agrsmmsg
Most of the reported problems related to Agrsmmsg are caused by virus or spyware infections. Malicious viruses, spyware and other harmful files may disguise themselves as Agrsmmsg and infect your system.
Many times, these malicious files will take a name similar to the files and processes currently running on your system. You can view all currently running tasks on your system by opening the Windows Task Manager window. To do this, press the ctrl-alt-del keys together, and then open the Processes tab on the Windows Task Manager window. To find out if any malicious process is running on the system, you can scan through the list of currently running processes.
Although useful, Task Manager displays only those processes that are running at the moment, and it does not display any DLL files that would be currently running on your system. Therefore, if a malicious file is running on your system in the name of Agrsmmsg, then you must search for files with the name Agrsmmsg and check to see if they are located in the correct location, (C:\Windows or C:\Windows\System), on the computer.
