bought new pc with Win 8 and tried to load old copy of Office 2007. After removing Office 2007, GrooveMonitor was not removed and lingered. Manually searched for, found, and removed all GM files. Problem solved

Whilst GrooveMonitor.exe is part of Office 2007, there is malware (self-extracting RAR archive) with the same name, please see link.

Normally a harmless part of the Microsoft Office suite, but a file of this name is also used as a dropper for a malicious virus that wipes all data from your hard disk
  Davey P   (further information)
It's in the Office 12 folder
  Ivan Catlett  
Yes, part of Office 2007 (there in enterprise, at least). Used to create spaces to share files and otherwise collaborate with others. Now called Microsoft SharePoint Workspace.
