GrooveMonitor.exe is a service utility that gets installed with Office 2007. It supposedly tracks Microsoft Groove behavior and creates error reports that get sent back to Microsoft. It also annoyingly, loads on startup. Strangely, it doesn't get uninstalled when you remove Office 2007.
To rid your computer of the evil, follow these steps:
- Type msconfig and press Enter
- Click the Startup tab and then untick any reference to groovemonitor
- Click Start - Run
- Type regedit and press Enter
- Browse to the following location the the registry: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
