Allows you to program mouse-keys and record key input from the mouse and keyboard. Low chance of Virus/Malware infection. Killing Amoumain.exe does absolutely not influence Windows-Performeance and Function. So it is not necessaryily needed for System stability.
GE dual scroll optical mouse driver
Mouse driver by Wheel3DMouse for classical 3 keys mouses (Logitech & similar). It enables free programming (inside of certain limits) of the mouse keys. It affects the stability of my system (W98SE), causes non-prognosticable ADSL connection break-downs, again and again (harmless) fall-outs of amoumain, but also relatively often blue-screen death. After killing out of Amoumain via TaskManager runs my PC as very fine lubricated again but I miss the free programmed keys.
With Comodo firewall so came it up that Amoumain.exe uses other programmes in order to link up itself on internet. Blocks I a programme with Comodo so tries Amoumain use next program.

Best practices for resolving Amoumain issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with Amoumain. 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 Amoumain.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.
