External information from Paul Collins:
- "Symantec NetDriver Monitor" can run at start up. Part of Symantec's LiveUpate (eg, Norton). Not required if you run manual upadtes but probably require if you leave them to run automatically. Also, if one runs a small office network and SNDMon is disabled on one of the computers – then other computers disappear from the network for this computer, including shared devices like printers and scanners. Hence the "U" recommendation
Important: Some malware camouflages itself as SNDMon.exe, particularly when located in the c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 folder.
