There is no description of the program. File StartupMonitor.exe is not a Windows system file. The program is loaded during the Windows boot process (see Registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run, HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders, HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run). The program is not visible. The program can be uninstalled in the Control Panel.

StartupMonitor has been tested on Windows 98, Windows 98SE, Windows ME, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, and Windows XP

StartupMonitor complements Sysinternal AutoRuns nicely When you choose not to allow a program to register itself, the program's entry becomes disabled in Sysinternal AutoRuns, so you can go back and enable it later if necessary.

Use the Uninstall icon on the start menu, or the Add/Remove Programs control panel. StartupMonitor should shut down automatically when you do this, but it might be a good idea to first manually close it using the directions above.
