Hi dear folks,
My desktop running Winxp 2nd edition, and whenever I turn off the PC, the message pops up in the screen by saying that End Program CTFMON.EXE and then EXPLORER.EXE.
Under above those circumstances, I ran AVG2015, but it didn’t work to remove those problems.
I will be waiting for your reply!

hi folks what is new!

"My desktop running Winxp 2nd edition"

Do you mean SP2? Why haven't you updated to SP3? Maybe that's at least part of your problem.

✔ Best Answer
I don't know that that's anything to worry about. CTFMON.EXE runs in the background when Office is running:

When shutting down, some things may be closing slower than you'd want causing the message to pop up. I get that sometimes with some AOL-related programs. You might run MSCONFIG and check the 'startup' tab and see if you've got stuff running in the background you don't need. I assume the message pops up for a few seconds and then windows goes ahead and shuts off?

But if it's preventing a shutdown--and depending on what the Explorer message means--then something else must be going on.
