    Can anyone tell me why Imon (Version 2) takes over Winsock on xp?
    How and what does it modify in the .dll? o_O

    IMON scan Internet traffic that are related to the winsock, incoming mail, ftp, etc.

    IMON does not modify any dll. It merely registers itself to the Layered services provider chain.

    Thanks Marcos. Is there anyway this procedure could either slow down or prevent access to the Internet?
