under msconfig - start up, i have a listing.
dumprep 0 -k
Ever seen it, what is it??
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
yes i seen it 'cause i have it to in start up.....have tried several times to prevent it to start with no luck any help??
Im pretty sure its your "dump" file when the system crashes ...Im pretty sure it logs your system crashes. Not sure though..have you crashed lately?
Try this free utility StartupCPL it will delet the things you dont need.
" Im pretty sure its your "dump" file when the system crashes "
thats what i though but at least in my case i disable the thing so i dont know why it keeps loading
try that program it will disable it.
xp uses a dump file to report the crashes.
Thanks for the program link, i'm sure its from the crashing...
downloaded the program but still it keeps showing up at startup......damn
by the way in startup it shows this also:
anyones knows what that is????
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.
so ctfmon is safe to disable
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 site...you might just want to leave it!
It looks like it's a pain in the a** to remove it.
What is CTFMON
