Asus Compatibility MONitor (ACMON).exe; (ASUS bloatware; see "Splendid" comment above) - I left it on is because I came accross notes referening to ACMON as workaround for issues between some Skype (VOIP/Video) type apps and ASUS... but i could be wrong.
Came installed on Asus laptop when new. Frequently fails to close automatically when shutting down Windows, requiring manual forced shutdown. When terminated at the start of a session, does not appear to have any adverse affects; supposedly related to video, but both viewing and broadcasting video seem unaffected by ending the task via Task Manager at the start of a session.
it comes installed on the pc it shouldnt be harmless. it says its not closing causing problems with pc hibernation
Causes crashes
