I have a Dell Latitude Laptop that has had some Intel wireless software issues, and it's finally up and working but now that it is I am getting this s24evmon.exe error on startup.  I have looked in msconfig and under startup and turned everything off that it could possibly be but it just seem the error message isn't showing up under this location.  Is there any other way to have the error removed?

s24evmon.exe is an application that gives access to your wireless network interface devices configurations and diagnostics. This program is a non-essential system process, but should not be terminated unless suspected to be causing problems.

I've run a malware scan and it doesn't appear to be the issue.  However I wonder without uninstalling the executable is there a way to just make the error message not show up on boot?

Open regedit to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\S24EventMonitor
and change the "Start" value to 4.
