    Is there a way to turnoff "ctfmon.exe" I found this to be my probles by using selective startup.
    The problem is loss of focus on my browser and screensaver not starting.

    I checked here:
    1. Quit all Office programs.
    2. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel. NOTE: In Windows XP, click Start and then click Control Panel.

    3. In Control Panel, double-click Add/Remove Programs.NOTE: In Windows XP, click Add or Remove Programs.

    4. In the Currently installed programs list, click to select Microsoft Office XP product, where Office XP product is the name of the specific Office product being used. If you are using a standalone version of one of the Office programs, click to select the appropriate product in the list. Click Change.
    The only XP Office program I have is Power Point Viewer, when I go to "add remove programs" the only option I have is to delete, there isn't a change option
    5. In the Maintenance Mode Options dialog box, select Add or Remove Features, and then click Next. This displays the Choose installation options for all Office applications and tools dialog box.
    6. Click the plus sign (+) next to Office Shared Features to expand it.
    7. Click the icon next to Alternative User Input, and then select Not Available.
    8. Click Update.

    Also I went to start/control panel/regional and language options/clicked language tab/detail/advanced tab/turn off advanced text services

    but CFTMON keeps coming back.

    Why do you want to remove it? it's not spyware nor does it use a lot of resources.. it's tied to Office and the Language bar..
