What is s24evmon.exe?
This is the Spectrum24 Event Monitor (also known as the Wireless Management Service). It is installed with Intel wireless drivers in order to handle switching from wireless to wired connections. As many pre-built systems include Intel wireless cards, many systems will have this process running.

This process is not essential to the proper operation of the system; however, it may be necessary for the proper functioning of your Intel wireless card or the ability to switch between wired and wireless. If it causes problems for you and you wish to disable it, you can try disabling it, taking note of the aforementioned potential caveats.

Dangers of s24evmon
As this is a legitimate process that is installed on many systems with Intel wireless cards, it is possible for virus writers and spyware vendors to disguise their malware as the genuine one.

Some malicious files may have the same name as this process but be stored somewhere other than in %ProgramFiles%\Intel\Wireless\bin. Other malware may use a name that appears similar to that of the legitimate one but with slight differences in spelling or with appended digits. While there are currently no known viruses, Trojans, or adware applications that disguise themselves as this process, you should look out for the presence of this file in an incorrect location or with a slightly different name.

There is typically only one instance of this process running at a given time on a system. The presence of multiple instances may be an indicator of a malware infection. Furthermore, if you do not have an Intel wireless card, the presence of this process would be a strong indicator of a malware infection.

Common problems
  • This process uses excessive memory (500 or more megabytes)
    • This program has a known memory leak. Try downloading the latest drivers for your Intel wireless.
    • If the problem persists, you can try disabling the process to see whether everything continues to work properly. If you do not need to switch between wired and wireless, you should be able to safely disable it.
  • This process causes excessive CPU usage
    • This is a reported problem. Try updating your Intel drivers. If that does not work, it is recommended that you disable the process.
