Once when I downloaded a windows update for my RealTeK Audio, ALCXMNTR came with it. I noticed that ALCXMNTR was on my HJT log in the startup (04), so I used a HJT log tutorial found on PC [bleep] site and there used PacMan's Start up list to look it up, it was listed there as "X" - Definitely not required - typically viruses, spyware, adware and "resource hogs". So I had HJT fix it, and never thought anymore about it, but then today I was in "Hidden files and folders" and noticed a folder/file named ALCXMNTR. I didn't know if it would be safe to delete it, didn't want to create a mess that may be unnessasary. So then I just was curious and went to search in the start menu and set the options to look in all folders including hidden, and searched for ALCXMNTR and it showed three:
ALCXMNTR in folder: C:\WINDOWS
Alcxmntr in folder: C:\hp\drivers\audio_realtek
ALCXMNTR in folder: C:\WINDOWS\system32\ReinstallBackups\0009\DriverFiles
Does this seem like it's needed for the realtek audio or would it be safe to get rid of it? Thanks for any comments!
