Unclick the two Adobe entries and follow the below to get rid of that CTFMON entry.

Download, and run CTFMON-Remover: http://www.gerhard-s.../ctfmonremover/
The CTFMON-Remover helps you removing the annoying CTFMON.EXE from your Windows operating system. The program is easy to use and displays whether the CTFMON.EXE is installed and running or not.
If it was found then you can remove it within seconds. Just in case that you need the CTFMON sometime in the future there is also an option to restore the original one.
Note:The CTFMON.EXE is among other things responsible for changing the language schema of your keyboard (e.g. for switching between the German and English keyboard layout).
So in case you are using this feature you shouldn't remove or disable the CTFMON.EXE!
NOTE. CTFMON.EXE is not a threat, but unnecessary startup, which can't be disabled in any other way.

Hi - there were a couple of blue screens during the installation of the new drivers, but they seemed to have sorted themselves out when I rebooted.

And since I've completed the updates, everything seems to be going swimmingly.

I'm assuming that this means everything is sorted?

Thanks very much for your assistance - you guys are great!

No problem and I will continue to monitor this topic for a couple more days. If you could please update me in a day or two as if the system is working correctly I would very much appreciate it. :)

Hi - I've got more problems now, with the laptop proving almost impossible to charge. It never rains but it pours, doesn't it?

But I've done a bit of research and I think I'm going to need a professional to re-solder the motherboard to the AC adapter, if that makes sense . . .

But the initial problems seem to have all been sorted out, thanks, and I've not had any more blue screens.

Once again, thanks very much for your time and hep - it's most appreciated.
