2001-06-28, 01:58 #1klynn1Guest
Anyone know what the program ctfmon.exe does?
It loads when I start Windows Me.
I killed it in msconfig startup, but it came back.
It does not exist on a Compaq laptop with OEM Win Me.
it lives in c:windowssystem,
properties name Cicero Loader, original name CICLOAD.exe
I only found one mention with a google search...
It was the same question, in Danish, said it:

Re: what's ctfmon.exe?
I found a few references to it using Google, including this from CNET Help.com in reply to an almost identical question:
"CTFMon.exe is an 8k loader that monitors your need/use of the Office XP
'alternative input' methods (Speech, handwriting, etc) as listed in
the 'Text Services' applet in the Windows control panel.
If you disable it through running MSConfig.exe and rename it, it won't
reload for awhile <g> but if you're using those features it may be helpful
to have it around.
If you're not using those Office XP features you may want to uninstall
'Alternative Input' from the Office XP choice in Add/Remove Programs in
the Windows Control Panel."
