I have no idea what this monitor.exe is, but I cannot find it in the task manager to close it so I can install this program. Please help, my attempts to google solutions have failed.

Welcome to the community Kaitlyn!


Perhaps this thread will help? Specifically:


Start > Run


Taskkill /f /im monitor.exe


Please accept as a solution if this fully resolves the issue, or reply with additional specifics if the problem persists.

I've tried doing that but the monitor.exe keeps popping up. Is it because I have windows 8 or am I just doing something wrong?

if you have windows 8 or 8.1 then right click on your windows 8.1 button (in the left corner of your screen) then open command promp(admin)

and paste: Taskkill /f /im monitor.exe then press enter

then if you press the 'Ok' button in the installation it will work
