It's from MS Office for Alternate user input - If you use speech etc. you
probably shouldn't disable this. If you want to remove it, here's the
proper way to get rid of it:

Microsoft Windows 2000 and Microsoft Windows XP:
Quit all Office programs.
Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel. NOTE: In
Windows XP, click Start and then click Control Panel.


In Control Panel, double-click Add/Remove Programs. NOTE: In Windows XP,
click Add or Remove Programs.


In the Currently installed programs list, click to select Microsoft Office
XP product, where Office XP product is the name of the specific Office
product being used. If you are using a standalone version of one of the
Office programs, click to select the appropriate product in the list. Click
Change.
In the Maintenance Mode Options dialog box, select Add or Remove Features,
and then click Next. This displays the Choose installation options for all
Office applications and tools dialog box.
Click the plus sign (+) next to Office Shared Features to expand it.
Click the icon next to Alternative User Input, and then select Not
Available.
Click Update.
NOTE: If you have multiple Office XP products installed, for example, Office
XP Professional and Publisher 2002, you must repeat the preceding steps for
each installed product.
Step 2: Remove Alternative User Input Services from Text Services
Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
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.


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
Click Start and then click Run.
In the Run dialog box, type the following command:
Regsvr32.exe /u msimtf.dll
Click OK.
Repeat steps 1 through 3 for the Msctf.dll file.

Hi Roger,
CTFMon is involved with the language/alternative input services in Office
XP. CTFMON.exe will continue to put itself back into MSConfig when you run
the Office XP apps as long as the Text Services and Speech applets in the
Control Panel are enabled. Not required if you don't need these features.
