Having let IE8 install on my pc, every time I go to use it, my system informs me that it wants to setup Messenger and CTFMON to automatically start when I switch the system on. Does anyone know how to stop this happening?

ctfmon will always start, it's part of office. Best thing to do is to remove IE 8. There are still so many problems with IE 8. After you have removed it. go to the microsoft update web page and block IE 8 from installing.

thanks T I M B O I will do that I had doubts about installing it but thought I would try. Much prefer Firefox anyhow.

In Messenger.Tools.Options.Sign in.Untick Automatically run messenger when I log on to Windows.Untick allow automatic sign in when connected to the Internet.
That should do it.no need to remove IE8.
