  • I don't HAVE any Office XP programs. I unistalled Office 2000. It exists no more.
    NOW may I PLEASE get rid of ctfmon.exe?
     
    I do not need speech recognition or handwriting recognition.
    I do not need translation services.
    I do not have alternative user input technologies.
    (I do not like green eggs and ham. I do not like them, Sam I am!!!!)

    I have a mouse, a keyboard, a monitor, 2 speakers, tower and a printer.
    That is all.

    PLEASE tell me how to remove this annoying piece of software.
    And don't refer me to Microsoft's Knowledge Base re: Ctfmon.exe.
    First of all, I don't have Ctfmon.exe, I have ctfmon.exe.
    Second of all, re-read the above. There is NO Microsoft Office XP product
    in my add/remove programs portion of control panel, so I CANNOT do those things.

    Thank you, if you can actually answer this question.

    These steps may or may not work depending on whether you are using Windows XP or Windows 2000... the steps differ for each OS.  Here is what I did to get rid of it even WITH Office 2000 SP-3 installed (I am using Windows XP Pro (SP-2):

     

    Open Control Panel

    Open Regional and Language Options

    Click on the Languages TAB -->  Uncheck BOTH boxes (unless you are Hebrew or Asian)

    Click the Details... push button located on the same TAB (languages)

    Click the Advanced TAB

    Uncheck TOP check box and CHECK the bottom check box (unless you are Blind, disabled, and/or Asian)

     

     

     

     

     

    This is what http://support.microsoft.com/kb/282599  suggests: (AFTER uninstalling the Office add-ons which you have already done:

     

    1.

    Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.

    2.

    In the Control Panel, double-click Text Services.NOTE: In Windows XP, click Date, Time, Language, and Regional Options, and then click Regional and Language Options. On the Languages tab, click Details.

    3.

    Under Installed Services, select each input item that is listed, and then click Remove to remove the item. All items must be removed, one by one, except the following input service:

    English (United States)- default Keyboard United States 101

    Step 3: Run Regsvr32 /U on the Msimtf.dll and Msctf.dll Files

    1.

    Click Start and then click Run.

    2.

    In the Run dialog box, type the following command:

    Regsvr32.exe /u msimtf.dll

    3.

    Click OK.

    4.

    Repeat steps 1 through 3 for the Msctf.dll file.
