    I killed this thing a while back and had forgotten how. From the BlackVipor website:

    ctfmon.exe: This is your "Language Bar." Don't know what it is? I bet you do not need it. Head to Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options -> Languages TAB -> Details BUTTON -> Language Bar BUTTON (under "Preferences") -> select the "Turn off advanced text services" check box. This little detail will save you between 1.5 MB and 4 MB of RAM. If you are using a "non-US" version, you may be required to install the English localization to remove this "feature."



    If this doesn't work, do a google on ctfmon.exe. There are some alternative procedures for getting rid of this service.

    Thanks Peter, I have spent ages trying to get rid of that but have not had the time to research it and did it the dirty way. :D

    Cheers. Pilli
