    Hey all,

    I've had a small problem that tends to slow up my shut down time. When I go to shut down I get a error- CTFMON.EXE is not responding.. From there I get a error that EXPLORER.EXE is not responding. I end task on both of these applications and then XP finally shuts down. Now I've heard that the CTFMON file is used for the language bar, but not sure how to fix this problem. Anyone know of a fix???

    Thanks:p

    I just checked the MS articles about it, they say not to delete it, but if you are having problems with it you can disable it using msconfig

    but they recommend if you don't use it that you go into your office installtion, use tyhe add/remove feature, goto shared components and remove the one labeled alternative text input

    hope that helps I just have it disabled from startup and haven't had any problems :)
