If it always starts up when you boot your computer, you can try removing it in start up
1) go to start menu --> click run
2) type msconfig
3) select the Startup tab
4) find those two processes and uncheck it
5) after clicking OK, your computer will need to reboot

If the above doesn't work, you can disable those processes in "services"
1) go to start menu --> click run
2) type services.msc
3) scroll and find "Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service"
4) right click and choose "properties"
5) In the "general" tab, change the startup type to "disable"
6) Ensure the "service status" is stopped.

Do the same thing for ctfmon but look for "advanced text services" and if you can't find it in services.msc do the following:
To stop ctfmon from autostarting and running all the time:
1) go to Control Panel
2) select Regional and Language Options
3) select the Languages tab
4) click the Details button
5) select the Advanced tab
6) check the box that says "Turn off advanced text services."

I recommend doing the msconfig first and see if that helps.

Ctfmon will just replace itself in msconfig. Does not appear in "Services." Uncheck the box for 'Turn off advanced text services.'

wmpnetwk.exe is part of Windows Media Player. It provides the "network services" of the player. WMP should contain a control to disable networking. If you can find it use it to turn it off. It is for this sort of reason that so many of us just don't use WMP. Too buggy. Too much of a system hog.
