    Default Constant alerting to access CTFMON (no virus)

    Ok... I'm fully updated, virus/spyware scanners, etc.
    Practically every program I have wants to access ctfmon.exe ...and everytime... Zone Alarm Pro 6.1.737 has to Alert me... I'm sick of that.
    I'm not going to allow all my programs to be allowed to run "all suspicious behaviors" just to get to ctfmon... and I don't get an alert that ctfmon.exe is running ever,
    so that I could allow ctfmon to do suspicious things... it's everything else that alerts, not ctfmon.
    I don't want to uninstall MS Office. And, oh yeah... I don't have my MS Office disks handy to change 'language' settings, they're in storage in another state. And why should I have to disable that anyway?
    I just want Zone Alarm Pro to quit **bleep**ing about ctfmon.
    And it's the real ctfmon, not a viral version.
    Anybody else get this constant alerting?
    Any way to make ZAPro stop **bleep**ing about it?
    I tried program control, 'Options', allow interactions.
    I sent an email to tech sup.

    I have the same problem, and it is
    really boresome.

    How can
    I avoid this?

    [ EDIT: Finally... an update. Try the new version... 6.1.744.001 ]

    I've had no response, including from ZA support... I'm thinking of uninstalling, re-installing... removing old settings, not updating. But if ZAP has ctfmon access in its sights all the time, it is unlikely to work.

    I am getting this constantly now, using 7.0.462 - every program wants to access CTFMON.EXE on my XP TabletPC almost every time it loads. This is terribly irritating. I've tried setting it to "Allow Application Interaction" in the "Program Control" settings, but there doesn't seem to be any way to account for it, since it's the action of the other application, not CTFMON.EXE itself, that ZA is objecting to. What is causing this and how can I get rid of it without shutting off ZA?

    I don't know if re-installing or updating had anything to do with it, but I have ctfmon.exe showing as 'Super' in the Trust Level in Programs tab under Program Control. It is listed as "CTF Loader" ...the Entry Details shows ctfmon.exe. I don't get any complaints about it anymore.

    Same here on settings. Anyone from Check Point reading this?
