This has all been rather interrupted by other things, but now hoping to wind this up.

Can I just double check: is Msconfig now supposed to look like this? (With the addition of WinPatrol I can't get the screenshots with one entry at the bottom of the first and the top of the second as I did before, but these two definitely cover all the entries.)Screenshot_3.JPG Screenshot_4.JPG

ctfmon is a process belonging to Microsoft Office Suite.....It activates the Alternative User Input Text Input Processor (TIP) and the
Microsoft Office XP Language Bar...
uncheck it....
note scottie the watch dog will pop up saying msconfig wants to add a startup blah blah...say no...its just that popup saying you have changed the way windows starts when you boot up...by saying no it will not popup...

I have done all the things you suggested, HappyRock, and for the time being all seems to be well. (I'm not sure that the system is more responsive overall. I expect I have other rubbish that I should be cleaning out that is slowing things down, but sometimes it seems you need to spend as long doing things for the computer as you do using it!)

Thank you so much for your help
