The Intel Application Accelerator is a fancy name for what is essentially a driver for motherboards using Intel chipsets. When installed, these drivers replace the native ATA drivers in Windows; the new drivers are optimized for Intel chipsets, which is what led to the marketing name "Application Accelerator". If this process is running on your system, you should definitely not terminate it.www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/iaantmon.exe.html

Installed with Intel Matrix Storage Server. Need if you have a RAID setup. You should be able to stop this process if you don't have a RAID setup
causes my cpu to lag spike john
This file caused an anoying Buzz in music files! Disabled and buzz gone :oD . File used for raid systems so should be removable if not using raid. Would be nice to find the conflict Jeff Curd
Source of stuttering in sound. Also caused excessive CPU usage for about 20 seconds every couple of minutes. Caused jumpy and slow mouse movement. Removed as I already have a RAID controller and didn't need this one for onboard RAID. All problems immediately ceased. kris
If you've been having problems playing MP3s, getting brief periods of 'fuzz' and lags this is probably your problem. Took me ages to track it down, they must have changed something recently as problem only only appeared a week or so ago. Disable it and MP3s now play flawlessly. DJ Steve
Same problem as @JeffCurd. Caused CPU spikes on interval-basis, laggy music etc. Detected using Process Explorer. Deactived AANTMON.EXE in task manager. Problem gone. Thanks! Find the solution thanks to Process Explorer April 2012
If it turns your pc slow, try to upgrade the intel matrix storage driver, if your do not use a ssd cache or raid, you can uninstall the driver and install the intel chipset driver to use the basic sata drivers
