    Whatever it is, it's from a program you installed, I did a Ms search and find no mention of any such program, you might wanna do a search for that exe, and find out what it is attached to

    Sorry i dont know why it is keeping itself in startup but I am sure its fine to leave it there. Ctfmon.exe is from OfficeXp. Ctfmon.exe monitors the active windows and provides text input service support for speech recognition, handwriting recognition, keyboard, translation, and other alternative user input technologies.

    Removing the Ctfmon.exe might cause problematic behavior in your Office XP programs, so removing it is not recommended. To prevent Ctfmon.exe from running, follow these steps.

    Read this from the Microsoft might just want to leave it!
    It looks like it's a pain in the a** to remove it.

    What is CTFMON
