When Internet Explorer 7 is installed on Windows XP, ctfmon.exe runs in the background without purpose, and when the Run entry for ctfmon.exe is deleted it will reappear. Ctfmon.exe activates the Alternative User Input Text Input Processor (TIP) and the Language Bar (for input of other languages such as East Asian).

To permanently stop ctfmon.exe from running:

1. Open Regional and Language Options from the Control Panel.

2. In the Languages tab, click Details... for Text services and input languages.

3. In the Advanced tab, place a check in Turn off advanced text services, and Apply.
