Windows 7: ctfmon.exe

07 Jul 2014   #1

windows 7 64 bit

I have completely uninstalled microsoft office 2003 using revo uninstaller.
Ctfmon.exe will not go away.
I use winpatrol to kill task but it comes back.
I went to microsoft, useless, at least for me.
How do i get it off my computer.
I have windows 7 home, i5 processor, 8gb ram.
It is not listed in services.msc that i can find.
