EFI Print Job Monitor for Canon Color Printers
The EFI Job Monitor is an applet that runs when you install the Canon copier printer drivers. It is annoying but not dangerous.
Unwanted Software: Came with a Xerox copier driver and difficult to remove ever since. Deleted associated DLL files in Spool folder & registery keys and sometimes comes back. Due to the nature of it reinstalling itself quietly and difficult to permanently remove I rate it dangerous. Called EFI support and was quickly turned away.

Installing itself only in one of my offices out in the boonies, comes up with an error that doesn't make any sense that I can tell, and then the print job prints anyway. Impossible to reliably remove, unwanted, having no luck tracking it down, rating it as dangerous. If you see this, good luck. Leaving it is unacceptable and removing it is next to impossible. Don't run any Canon or Xerox printers, only Konica Minoltas.
nichts will auch nicht
Habe diesen mit einem Treiber für Canon Multigerät installiert. Ist meiner Meinung nach völlig unnötig.

Best practices for resolving JobMonitor issues

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