quote from

"Owners of a AMD ATI Radeon video card will notice the four processes ccc.exe, atiedxx.exe, atiesrxx.exe and mom.exe when they open up the Windows task manager. Those processes are installed with the installation of the ATI Catalyst driver package for the Windows operating system. But what are these processes doing or providing and is it really necessary to have them running all the time on the computer system?

Atiedxx.exe and atiesrxx.exe are the AMD External Events Client Module and AMD External Events Service Module. Both processes are executed when the Windows Service AMD External Events Utility is started. This service was known as the ATI Hotkey Poller in Windows XP and Windows Vista.

This means that the service is responsible for providing hotkey access to various ATI features. It is therefor recommended to disable the service if hotkeys are not used to manage ATI features."
