i am almost certain that it comes from installing Vtech childrens toys software.

I also have vTech software on my computer. I uninstalled it and agentMonitor.exe was removed from my processes.
i installed vtech explorapark and have the process running now.
It is for the kids Vtech toys. My daughter has the Innotab which is like a kids version of an Ipad. And this agentmonitor.exe is the program that is needed to connect the Innotab to the pc to transfer files and whatnot. Think of the agentmonitor.exe program to be like the Itunes program for the Innotab.

Installed vTech software recently
I agree that it is from the Vtech software - as soon as I uninstalled the software the AgentMonitor Application disappeared.
I know for certain it's VTech. I've analysed it with Sysinternals ProcessExplorer. Seems to auto-update itself.
It started to appear after I installed vtech explorepark
Did not have it until I installed V-Tech Learning Lodge. I just go into task manager and end it when I am not using the V-Tech software.
Seems to be from a Vtech kids tablet my girlfriend activated for her niece.

Best practices for resolving AgentMonitor issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with AgentMonitor. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the AgentMonitor.exe process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries. A unique security risk rating indicates the likelihood of the process being potential spyware, malware or a Trojan.
