The ctfmon.exe process is a Windows-based process file and runs after using many Microsoft Office products (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and others). Even after closing or canceling a Microsoft Office application, the process may continue running in the background. In many cases, this is not cause for alarm. However, if it uses an increasingly large amount of system resources, it may be a malicious file.
