Description:

Realtek Azalia Audio - Event Monitor, installed with the drivers for on-board Realtek HD audio codecs. Some users believe that Realtek uses this file in order to gather data about the customer but it's exact purpose is unknown and it doesn't run on an ALC885 based test system or try to access the internet. Some users report problems with their on-board sound if this is disabled - hence the "U" recommendation
