When you run a Microsoft Office XP program, the file Ctfmon.exe (Ctfmon) runs in the background, even after you quit all Office programs.
That's a difficult question to answer precisely. There are countless possible ways that such a trojan could end up on your machine. Perhaps the best answer I can give is that no amount of security software will guarantee your immunity from malware infections. Malware writers are constantly devising new ways to slip past security software. The best defense against malware is to make sure all software stays up to date, and practice safe surfing habits.
If this is a real trojan, how did I get it if I have all of this protection?
