stimon is still image monitor. If you have windows XP or 2000, you can disable the service from control panel->administrative tools.

If you feel comfortable editing the registry, go to this key:

HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Run

and look for stimon.exe. Set the value to 0.

However, this is a tool related to USB scanners, so if you do this, your scanner will not work properly. I recommend reinstalling the scanner, and seeing if that clears the problem up.

If that doesn't work, you should check out the website or technical support for the vendor of your scanner, since that seems to be the problem.
