Do the following search on 'Taskmon.exe':

http://castlecops.com/modules.php?name= ... askmon.exe


There are five (5) reported and KNOWN instance variations for that EXE. Three (3) are user choice instances and two (2) are known-bad instances. Everything in malware has a CONTEXT, you need to be sure that you have found the correct context for any conclusions you might make.

You clearly appear to have a good variation of that file.


If you are still unsure whether you have found a good or bad instance, try the following useful steps:


HIDDEN FILES: To make sure you can see any and all hidden files, please follow the directions here

Scan unknown files for viruses/malware
Please go to this website and submit the following files (copy and paste each full file PATH) for possible Viruses/Trojans detection analysis and immediate feedback:
http://virusscan.jotti.org/

Submit these files (or use Start>Search to locate FULL File Path):

Let us know what the results were for the file(s).
