What is CTF Loader ‘ctfmon.exe’

CTF (Collaborative Translation Framework) Loader is basically a procedure led by Microsoft Windows and is also connected to the ctfmon.exe file, which keeps an eye on all of the active windows and provides them the technical support for handwritten recognition, keyboard, translation, speech and also as well as the other related technologies. Ctfmon (ctf loader) is the Microsoft process that operates the computer through a speech, a pen or a tablet, or also by using the onscreen keyboard inputs for Asian languages.

So basically, this file is the most acceptable file that we can run whenever we need it. However, if the file is shown in the task manager and is using a lot of assets, then it might be a danger.

There are basically two possible occurrences here. The first possible occurrence that there is an application which is already running, originates the ctfmon.exe. But we are not sure yet about the application that is using the CTF Loader.

The second possible outcome is that we are pretty sure that we are not using an application which might, at the later stages, originate the ctfmon.exe. So, in this particular occurence, we should be careful, especially if the ctfmon.exe is using a lot of equipment’s. There are two types of methods for controlling the ctfmon.exe.


  • Firstly, If  a CTF Loader error or extreme performance decline is again and again apperaring on our monitor screen because of the ctfmon.exe especially after updating the Windows, then our answer will be to return to the old version of the Windows. Then, there will be a Windows update that will cause this problem with the CTF Loader. A simpler method of returning back to the older build is to  press Windows key > Settings > Update & Security > Recovery > Click Get Started  in the Go back section to step back on to the earlier version of Windows 10 .
  • Secondly, we should check the path i.e. C:\Windows\System32 or C:\Windows\SysWOW64. We should be able to find the reasonable or we can say that the acceptable executable file in either those paths which depend on whether we are having a 32-bit version or a 64-bit version. Hold on the Windows key and then press E > Hold Windows key, then press F > Type exe in the search bar and press the Enter key. Then, Delete all the ctfmon.exe files that we are finding in locations other than the mentioned above and scan the computer.
