There is a SYSMON.EXE which installs itself in the Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Sysmon folder of its own. It also may insinuate itself into the .INI file of your default JPG viewer. It then stores hundreds of screen shots of your card data entry pages. Yes, it is very dangerous and is a stealth keylogger.
it creats copies of usb or cd drives and stores in system32\mui directory

Best practices for resolving sysmon issues

The following programs have also been shown useful for a deeper analysis: ASecurity Task Manager examines the active sysmon process on your computer and clearly tells you what it is doing. Malwarebytes' well-known Banti-malware tool tells you if the sysmon.exe on your computer displays annoying ads, slowing it down. This type of unwanted adware program is not considered by some antivirus software to be a virus and is therefore not marked for cleanup.

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding PC trouble. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using 1cleanmgr and 2sfc /scannow, 3uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using 4msconfig) and enabling Windows' 5Automatic 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 6resmon 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 7DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
