Hi, I currently have Spybot and Avast, and neither of these detected monitorsvc and it's been on my computer over 2.5 years. Uggh.

reImage DID find it, though, and I'm considering purchasing their program for a year because it doesn't just remove the malicious files; it repairs the registry and puts back in the original Windows 7 files (my understanding anyway :) ).

Does Free Fixer do the same thing? Please reply asap, because I need to act today. Thanks.

@ReimageUser: Sorry for the delay. I've had a few days off to visit family.

If monitorsvc.exe appears in one of the scan locations, FreeFixer will list it in the scan result, where you can remove it.

Give FreeFixer a try if you like. It's free and it does not cripple the removal feature.
