I recently installed IL2 Stab 4.3. Immediately after that my firewall notified me that a component of IE, Opera, MS Messenger and practically everything else I have that has access to the internet has changed, citing "Stabmon.dll" as the changed part.

What is Stabmon.dll, what's it for and why is it involved with my other internet using programmes?

stabmon.dll is merely used by il2stab to detect when you have started a game of IL2 or FB - nothing dodgy about it AFAIK. I've used il2stab for a long time now with no problems at all.
