Once Taskmon infects a computer, an attacker has remote access to the computer. All files and programs are at risk. Taskmon can steal passwords, log keystrokes, and intercept e-mails Threat

    For a couple of days I had a message that said that taskmon.exe encountered a problem (I use win XP, so no taskmon.exe, although I erased the taskmon file that appeared in taskmanager – go figure) then I had a message that said that I had a problem with Norton Anti virus and that it had to be uninstalled and reinstalled..(the icon of Norton Systemworks disappeared from the task bar and Norton systemworks did not open) I did uninstall Norton anti-virus and from that moment every time I try to boot the computer, it loads the icons in the desktop and after 5-10 seconds it reboots by itself. I was at the end of my patience, thinking to do a system restore, but someone told me about the blue penguin. I said to myself that is nothing to loose, so I installed Spyzooka. Now, the computer is running better then before the infection. I’m so happy that I found this site 🙂

    Taskmon ruined my computer. It was impossible to remove, but thanks to this blog it is finally gone.

    I had a couple of anti-spyware programs that would either miss taskmon.exe or wouldn’t clean it when found. SpyZooka not only found it but cleaned taskmon.exe right off the PC. Being a DJ, I have to ensure my PC is running smoothly and SpyZooka certainly helped.
