    Does anyone have any clue what the application GrooveMonitor.exe which :eek: appears to be installed after installing Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 is? I have no idea what this thing does....and it sucks up a bit of bandwidth - not enough to alarm me, but enough for me to wonder what it is? Anyone know?:rolleyes: :-*

    GrooveMonitor.exe belongs to Microsoft Office Groove 2007, which is a peer-to-peer program aimed to facilitate business communication and collaboration for small groups. It was installed with your new Office Enterprise. If you don't want it to run, simply kill the process in your Task Manager. You can also prevent it from running at startup by going to Start -->Run --> type 'msconfig' --> OK --> click 'Startup' tab --> uncheck the box next to GrooveMonitor.

    Exactly. I have it on my machines. Just not exactly sure what I am going to do with it. Fascinating concept though.
