Among my list of scheduled tasks is something called "com.DesignScience.DSMTTool" located at


What is this? Do I need it?


DesignScience are the ones making MathType – an application used by Microsoft Word to be able to type out complex math formulas and display them easily. If you have Microsoft Word installed on your Mac, I think that's what it is. I can't confirm this though, as I don't have MathType installed.

Edit: I'm trying to get someone from Mathematics to confirm it.
Edit 2: I was unable to get a confirmation for this, but I'm still pretty certain it belongs to MathType. Check in Word if you have MathType installed!

    Sure enough, that's it! Some of these archaic (Windows legacy) apps leave a lot of junk around. – orome Feb 18 '13 at 20:08
