ctfmon

Recommended Posts

I seem to have it running all the time in my processes...

It appears to be a part of Microsoft Office. The only Microsoft on this computer was a 2007 Student Trial version, which I downloaded in 2007 and haven't used since 2 months after downloading it.

I decided to uninstall it last night as it was not needed any longer, to free up space, and also to see if ctfmon.exe would go away.

It has not gone away... I'm sure its harmless but I just want to check to make sure :)

Does anyone know what ctfmon.exe is?

well, it doesn't appear to be bad, but I don't even have any Office programs anymore :)

Thanks again for the info, I'll try it out sometime.

It gets installed by Office and other softwares, it can't be removed just by removing Office. It's a voice-to-text component as I recall. I know how to remove it, there are a couple of ways, but it's harmless to leave it there and it doesn't eat a lot of resources.

Ah, okay. Darn, I was hoping it would go away with the uninstallation of the Office trial. :) At least I freed up 308 MB!

Well, I trust you, so if you say its harmless to leave it there, I guess I'll just leave it then :)

Thanks :)

You could install Office again to remove it, but that's sort of a pain to go through all of that. I have another method or two that can be used to kill it, but it's likely not worth the trouble. If you want me to assist you with killing it I can though :) .

I think I'd have to install a trial again, as we have no disc and the program did not come with the computer, and I agree either way, it would be a pain :)

I think I'll take you up on that at some point, but not tonight, going to sleep soon :)

Thanks :)
