    First time my System Safety Monitor asked me if I want to allow amon.sys to start (c:\windows\system32\drivers\amon.sys). I never have been asked before. Is this a part of nod32 (2.70.12 RC)?

    Thanks. I submitted it to virustotal and all came out clean.
    Maybe my SSM went just crazy...

    Hello,

    The AMON.SYS file (typically located in the %windir%\system32\drivers\ directory) is the driver used by NOD32's Activity Monitor (AMON) module.

    Regards,
