XP Home, ctfmon exe, I'm the sole user (one account).
I was never denied access before, run as administrator, although I know better. cftmon.exe was not there a month ago (made a list of all startup entries). I initially attempted to remove it because I googled ctmon by mistake & saw "dangerous trojan". Now each time I go near msconfig, regardless of whether or not I've attempted to change a setting, I'm denied access!
ctfmon is where it's supposed to be in Windows/System 32.
The Microsoft link re ctfmon.exe is odd... I do not have Microsoft Office on my PC. I have an unactivated/never used program, Microsoft Office Tools & also I noticed a couple Windows updates for the Microsoft Office (checked critical & custom at a couple points & took 'em all!)
Changes in the last month: Upgraded Windows Defender & then removed it, Upgraded Windows Media Player & removed URGE, added AVG Antispy, Belarc Advisor. I noticed the entry the night before I put Comodo FW on, but didn't try to remove it until afterwards. Ran a coulpe of scans to test FW stealth. Ah yes, I upgraded to IE 7. I Pass all AV, AT, AS scans. All security is up to date & I'm fully patched.
