The NI Device Monitor allows to launch NI software to configure and work with an NI USB device when it is plugged in and detected. Older versions may automatically launch an application like Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX) or NI SignalExpress when the hardware is detected. If that is your case, refer to Prevent Auto Start of NI MAX or SignalExpress for USB.For older versions of the NI Device Monitor, in the Windows taskbar notification area, right-click the NI Device Monitor icon and select Clear all device associations. This closes all of the service's references to any USB devices that are currently plugged in. Also, uncheck the Run at startup option in the shortcut menu of NI Device Monitor option to disable the service upon reboot.
